Strong-billed Woodcreeper

Having watched our North American creeper, the 5-inch-long Brown Creeper, for most of my life, it was hard to get used to seeing large creepers in Ecuador. In particular, the 12-inch-long Strong-billed Woodcreeper was almost shocking as it captured 4-inch moths and beat them on a tree branch until the wings fell off. Quite entertaining, to say the least.
