Classic Trans – Amazonic Birding Trial
The Andes are well-known diversity hotspots hosting a special diversity and a lot of endemic and near-endemic birds. The Orinoquía and Amazonia are home to lots of astonishing birds including colorful Tanagers, cryptic Antbirds, iridescent Hummingbirds, tricky Flycatchers, and songster wrens, all of them right there for you to enjoy. From the isolated high Paramos of the Eastern Andes to the entrance of the Colombian Amazonia, we will look for specialties on the foothills of the Eastern Andes, where you could see one of the most restricted range Antpittas in the world: The Cundinamarca Antpitta. This birdie has been registered only in two localities of the Eastern Andes of Colombia. In the lowlands, we will have the opportunity to watch some colorful Tanagers and search for some cryptic Antbirds, Antshrikes, and Antwrens. At the end of our trip, we will spend three complete days looking for distinguished and rare species along with the transition between the flatlands and the jungle. This area has a record of at least six hundred species living in many different ecosystems offering us the chance to watch magnificent rarities everywhere.

This is a fairly standard birding tour with early morning starts and evening finishes to each day. One some days we may take picnic lunches in order to no waste time during the middle of the day or having to leave site. The weather can be unpredictable with rain and sunshine both likely. At higher altitudes it can be chilly. We have an amazing photo opportunity for many species of hummingbirds and other species coming to feeders, we will also be looking for a good number of species that are very rare and seldom seen, but we will be going to areas that hold these sought-after species.
