Hi Steve, good time yes for sure, but disappointing birding wise rain or no rain.

I like the more yellow bird as well, looks very cute
Yes the Wren was for sure the bird of the trip, the Yellow Bird as kindly pointed out by Kevin, is in fact a Yellow-bellied Fantail

John about how long did you end up waiting, while sitting with the rest of
the crew?
Hi Josh, it was our third visit in two days to go for the Wren, we waited just over one hour to get the shots, as mentioned in my opening post several others had waited two full days for the Wren, with no other action, that what you call dedication, myself I get bored just sitting and waiting

Your quite correct gautam, but it didn't help when considering that we were high up a mountain

Hi Kevin, thanks for the ID help, we had listed with our bird guide the birds seen and photographed each day, but I still need to search my books to get the photo ID
