The lowlands of the Amazon basin boast incredible biodiversity; and, bird-wise, the area is arguably to most species-rich in the world. The number of bird species recorded at Napo Wildlife Center is approaching 600! The tour will focus on finding as many species and local specialties as possible, by visiting multiple (micro) habitats within the Amazonian basin. Although the list of possible targets is immense here, a couple of iconic species that we have chances for include Hoatzin, Zigzag, Capped and Agami Herons, Gray-winged Trumpeter, Sungrebe, Scarlet, Blue-and-yellow, Chestnut-fronted and Red-bellied Macaws, Gould’s Jewelfront, Wire-crested Thorntail, Great and Long-tailed Potoos, White-throated, Black-mandibled and Channel-billed Toucans, Many-banded and Ivory-billed Aracaris, American Pygmy and Green-and-rufous Kingfishers, Gilded and Scarlet-crowned Barbets, Crimson-crested Woodpecker, Coppery-chested Jacamar, Rusty-belted Tapaculo, Long-billed Woodcreeper, Cinnamon Attila, Screaming Piha, Golden-headed and Orange-crowned Manakins, Bare-necked Fruitcrow, Black-necked Red Cotinga and dozens of antbird species!
