Colombia is the world's most biodiverse country for birds, with over 1,900 species of birds, accounting for 18% of all known birds in the world! This country also has the highest number of bird endemisms in the world, with 73 species found nowhere else. However, the true gem of Colombia is the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta; an isolated, coastal mountain range with over 440 bird species and the highest number of bird endemics per unit area in the world. The isolation of the mountains, as well as the drastic habitat differences between the foothills and higher altitudes allowed for this impressive evolutionary feat. . The sun was setting on my final day in Sant Marta and I had little hope of seeing my first Trogon before leaving. I was walking along a trail, calling to the quetzals, when suddenly to my shock a male White Tipped Quetzal emerged from a tree cavity (member of the Trogon famly). I spent 15 minutes with this quetzal and his mate, they were high up in the branches and the light was disappearing fast. As the quetzals returned to their cavity for the night, I felt a small fruit fall on my head. I looked up to find this Masked Trogon (Trogon personatus sanctamartae) perched directly above me! He was so beautiful, and so close, but the sun had basically set so I did my best. I couldn't believe it- the last possible chance of photographing a trogon on this trip, and I saw not one but two incredible species. You could say I'm lucky 😉 . ------------------------------------------------- #FollowMe @celinaxchien for a young voice in the world of wildlife, conservation and photography! . . #biophiliac #photofotheday #nature #wildlife #biodiversity #everydayeverywhere #endangered #biology #science #conservation #flashbackfriday #photography #birding #birdlife #santamarta #colombia #SouthAmerica #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #instagood #love #instalove #travel #YourShotPhotographer #EarthCapture #BBCEarth

As far as compilation albums go, you can’t do much better than Squeeze’s "Singles – 45’s and Under."
