Andean solitaire        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Andean solitaires are secretive thrushes with lovely songs, found across a wide range in South America; everywhere they occur they are one of the characteristic voices of cloud forests.   This bird had a nest in a road embankment; it was photographed in the Western Andes of Colombia above the city of Cali.
