Birding Site Guide

This is a nice road to bird in the morning. I stayed in Barinitas which is a lot nicer than Barinas and much safer. There seems to be only 1 place to stay here, Hotel El Jardin. It's more like a motel and has about 100 rooms. A room cost me 20,000B. Barinitas has a few hot dog stands and an internet cafe. In the morning, a bus leaves the plaza for Altamira on the way up to another town. A good plan is to get off at the junction on the main road and walk down the hill towards Altamira. I saw some good flocks of tanagers and some nice hummingbirds along here. There are many other areas worth exploring in the Santa Domingo valley too. I saw 52 species including 6 lifers.
