in Birding Neotropics

I would have liked to write a long post about Satipo road, where I shall be heading in a couple of days, since there now is a basic lodge to stay (see top picture). The community is  running a lodge for birders (see the top photo). All this as a result of taking a few locals to Mindo in Ecuador, where they could see with their own eyes how local farmers became birding services entrepreneurs – such as the case of Angel Paz and his Giant Antpitta Maria -and the fundraising of RainForest Partnership (yes you can donate to the project on that link). Now the people of Calabaza/Apaya are committed to become eco-tourism service providers.

But this post will not be long since it is almost midnight when I write this and tomorrow I have to be up early birding near Oxapampa.

Central Peru birding route video

Instead I thought I’d share a video  about the birding in Central Peru produced by PromPeru a few years ago. You may recognize the birder. Enjoy!

The video is very professional. In spite of the good quality, there are two quite bold mistake that only a birder can discover.  See if you can spot them!

You know Gunnar… I was tracking back on your posts as I’m very keen in searching for info regarding Peru in the hope of a visit soon, but the three videos from PromPeru are private… too bad!.. I loved the one with Paz and all his AWESOME birds, though…

Interesting, Alex. I’ll check again myself. I just sent the link to PromPeru, because new people at PromPeru did not know of its existence!! Anyway, I updated with the complete video. It is the same as was on the Glenn Bartley post.
