|Birding the San Sebastian Reserve and the Aburrá Valley - Medellin, Colombia|
So I may have a new girlfriend in Medellin after being divorced for a year, and as a result have limited my photography/birding on this trip to Colombia to the immediate area around Medellin, known as the Aburrá Valley.

San Sebastian is at a higher altitude, and there is mostly just one trail going from 2450 to 2950 meters. To get to San Sebastian, take the metro to Envigado, and then the bus to Las Palmas. After 12 half-day visits (it rains most every afternoon) I have seen without binoculars the following (and many of these birds only one time):
