The proprietors of Ecuador’s fabled Refugio Paz de las Aves may have pioneered the art of attracting secretive antpittas from the underbrush with fresh worm salad.

The results are so spectacular that it should come as no surprise that this practice has spread. The newest location to habituate rare antpittas to hand feeding is the Owlet Lodge in Peru’s Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva Private Conservation Area. If you’re looking for Undulated Antpitta, pack your bags! (Hat tip to the American Bird Conservancy)
