I took this photo of a White-bearded Manakin (Manacus manacus) at the Bellavista Natural Reserve which is not far from the small town of Victoria, on the edge of the central Magdalena valley in Colombia. This male bird was at a lekking site, conveniently right next to the small track we were walking along, making for an easy photo opportunity. It’s always a great thrill to hear the distinctive ‘finger snapping’ noises that alert you to the proximity of a manakin lek!
