I know there are 1 or 2 birders among the WH Travellers (@Clyde, @mrayers, I am looking at you) - can one of you identify this one: https://www.flickr.com/photos/32282344@N08/49323521377/in/dateposted-ff/ ?
I found them high up in the trees in the San Agustín Sculpture Park (really full of birds in the early morning, though they are skittish). Some kind of falcon? Though it has a straight beak.

Really looks like Colombian chachalaca (Ortalis columbiana) (https://ebird.org/species/colcha1) to me. This species is furthermore seen quite frequently in San Agustin according to eBird.

Ah, yes! Weird bird, bit clumsy.

Truly stunning discovery and perhaps easily a candidate for Top Missing - Latin America? I very much dislike how in [some] articles about the discovery, the Rock Art panel is described as "the Sistine Chapel of the ancients". I think this is insulting to contextualize every amazing piece of art or culture through the lens of European treasures. Nevertheless, this article does not do that and the images are stunning.

mrayers:
The photos I have seen so far are absolutely incredible, and this place needs to be added to Colombia's Tentative List as soon as possible!

I agree, a worthy candidate.

It's just outside Chiribiquete NP WHS, which has similar rock art. So it could be an extension.

It was already named in Chiribiquete's AB ev: "Covered by the global management process of the nominated property, the site of La Lindosa has similar characteristics and similar natural and cultural values."
La Lindosa is the site chosen to open up for tourism.
