This is one of my favorite shots from this entire trip. The female (note the short tail feathers) posed on a branch, food in mouth, before entering the nest, and I took a number of frames. At the time, I thought it had some type of large bug in its mouth, but once I downloaded the pictures, and examined them on my laptop, I was shocked to discover that it was some kind of frog. It's a little hard to see at this size, but you can just make out the hands. At full image size, it is clearly a frog.
