We were up and birding early on the morning of Monday, January 16, 2012, along Yarapa Creek, a tributary of the Amazon (South Bank). The Striped Cuckoo, Tapera naevia, was one of the birds that we saw. This furtive bird is heard more often than seen. The juvenile is similar to the adult but has wing coverts and crest feathers tipped with round golden buff spots. The dusky breast is lightly scaled. Temperatures were in the upper 70's with hazy skies and high humidity.
