Birding in the Rainforest, Without Even Leaving the Lodges

Phil Torres

For us that work at Rainforest Expeditions, there are at times days when we're too busy working to get the chance to step out into the marvelous forest around us. But that doesn't mean nature disappoints, it often does quite the opposite and surprises us with close encounters and fantastic photo opportunities.


Here are some of the birds that have come right up to us in recent days at Refugio Amazonas, great opportunity for birding in the rainforest.

This is just the beginning, we also get many hummingbirds, oropendolas, tanagers, jays, macaws, parrots, and others that are call the lodge and its surroundings their home.

So you can imagine: if this is what you see when you're at the lodge, just wait until you step into the forest.

How to plan your Amazon travel to see this and other Amazon wildlife  <http://www.perunature.com/check-availability/>

  • Go on a hike in the rainforest with a trained guide: They have the eagle eye you need to discover the amazon wildlife around. To practice, download your Amazon Rainforest Animal identification guide and the beautiful illustrated plate of Amazon mammals.
  • And of course, when you travel to the Amazon you know who to chat with. We will help you get here.
