Scale-throated Earthcreeper, Sillustani

Yesterday I visited Sillustani together with my students at the Bible College. After visiting the Archeological Site we vent down to the Museum. Here I walked up a hill with some vegetation (photo). Along the upper part of the hill I observed a Scaled-throated Earthcreeper. I was not able to photograph the bird, and after two short observations I also lost the bird. I stayed in the area 30 minutes without finding it again.

The Museum lies at the left-hand side about 200 meters before the entrance to the Archeological Site. The site fits with the habitat description given in Birds of the High Andes by Fjeldså & Krabbe.
