Pipeline trail, Chiguata 11.12.07

The Black Metaltails seems to prefer gorges where they can stay in the shadows.

Human activity in the Pipeline trail

The Pipeline trail lies in the Chiguata basin. You can see the pipeline cross the fork at the left-hand side of the road. This was earlier a peaceful place with birds like White-throated Earthcreeper and Rusty-bellied Brush-Finch. The human activity in this gorge has probably scared them both. However I saw several Black Metaltails displaying in the entrance to the gorge.
