Crescent-faced Antpitta, Grallaricula lineifrons, Colombian near endemic, rare difficult to see often associated with Chusquea spp. Bamboo . Called in by Nestor the Antpitta wisperer extrordinaire of Hacienda del Bosque. Although the type specimen was collected in northeastern Ecuador in 1923, Crescent-faced Antpitta remained unreported in life until nearly 50 years later. Its known distribution is somewhat patchy, extending from southern Colombia to southern Ecuador along the east slope of the Andes. Only recently, 90 years after its formal description, was breeding of Crescent-faced Antpitta reported in the literature, based on a single nest found very close to the type locality in northeastern Ecuador. Crescent-faced Antpittas inhabit the undergrowth of humid, montane forests at, and just below, treeline. This species seems to prefer areas with an open understory, but also is found in sites with dense areas of Chusquea spp. Bamboo.  The high-Andean, Polylepis forests that are the home of Crescent-faced Antpittas are under continued and severe threat due to agricultural expansion and timber extraction for charcoal (Stattersfield et al. 1998, Sierra et al. 1999, Freile and Santander 2005). Contrary to the low risk of extinction due to habitat degredation suggested by Ridgely and Greenfield (2001), this species does not appear to persist in human altered habitat (Cresswell et al. 1999, personal observations) and, as pointed out by Freile et al. (2010), the current status of Crescent-faced Antpitta approaches the threat thresholds for being considered Vulnerable.

Choco Daggerbill, white-throated wedgebill or western wedge-billed hummingbird, Schistes albogularis is a species of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae.This species is a nectar parasite with a short dagger like bill which it uses to pierce the base of the flower to get to the hidden nectar in the nectaries. Normally hummingbirds must thrust their bill down the tubular flower getting pasted with pollen (male sex cells) from the stamens which they will deposit on the stigma (female reproductive part) of the next flower they visit, thus pollinating the flower. It is sometimes merged with the visorbearers in Augastes. It is found in western Colombia and Ecuador.

Volcano Nevado del Ruiz, Nevado del Ruiz,also known as La Mesa de Herveo, the highest active volcano in the Andes Mountains of Colombia, suffers a mild eruption that generates a series of lava flows and surges over the volcano's broad ice-covered summit. Flowing mixtures of water, ice, pumice, and other rock debris poured off the summit and sides of the volcano.produce swift-moving currents of hot gas and rock called pyroclastic flows. These eruptions often cause massive lahars (mud and debris flows), On November 13, 1985, a small eruption produced an enormous lahar that buried and destroyed the town of Armero in Tolima, causing an estimated 25,000 deaths. This event later became known as the Armero tragedy--the deadliest lahar in recorded history.The volcano is part of Los Nevados National Natural Park, which also contains several other volcanoes. The summit of Nevado del Ruiz is covered by large glaciers. The volcano continues to pose a threat to the nearby towns and villages, glacier, glaciers; Finca Cortaderal, near Santa Rosa, Colombia, South America; COL36453.CR2

The dry, dark, dead stumps seem quite out of place in this otherwise healthy landscape, as if placed here artificially. In the 1880s the meadow housed the Smith Comstock Lumber Mill, an operation which split the timber into fence posts and stakes to be used for vineyards and farms in the Central Valley.  coniferous {gymnosperm, naked seed}; Sequoia06129592432zUsAnnRobSimpson.jpg
