Narrow-billed Woodcreeper, Sucre, Bolivia

Here are some birds from Sucre, Bolivia. I visited our theological seminary next to the airport in Alto Tucsupaya, Sucre a couple of days. From the office I observed a Narrow-billed Woodcreeper 05 of May. It was climbing in a tree next to the window. I have earlier seen Narrow-billed Woodcreeper close to "Hacienda Siete Cascadas" at 2600 m. However, 05 of May I saw the bird at 2860 m, witch might be the highest ever observation of this species. Ridgely and Tudur (The Birds of South-America, vol. 2) mentions that it is possible to see this species at least to 2300 m in Bolivia.
