Rufous-bellied Seedsnipe

Attagis gayi

This bird was found at 4,500m (just over 14,750 feet) above sea level, the highest that I have ever been on land. Our bus took us to about 4,300m. The last 200m or so climb on foot was difficult due to the lack of oxygen, but Glenn kindly carried my camera and tripod, so he made it easier for me. The effort was well worth it!
