Antpittas are a secretive family of neotropical birds which are often extremely difficult to see. These days, your best chances are to visit a lodge where they have set up ‘feeding stations’-special spots in the rainforest where birds, over time, have become habituated to come in to feed on worms etc that are daily put out for them. When we were staying at the Cabanas San Isidro lodge in Ecuador, they had such a feeding station in the forest around the lodge which was attracting the tiny Peruvian Antpitta (Grallaricula peruviana). Although this bird stayed at the feeder for some time, it wasn’t easy to get a decent photo due to the distance involved and the low-light levels in the rainforest. The above was my best effort!
