Birding Site Guide

On a recent tour with Paul Smith. Highlights included a mixed flock with species such as Wing-barred Piprites and Black-crowned Tityra, a Slaty-breasted Wood-rail, Long-tailed Tyrant, several pairs of Spot-billed Toucanet which reacted strongly to recordings of their call, noisy pairs of Buff-bellied Puffbird and Robust Woodpecker. A pair of Ruddy Quali-dove hung around to give fantastic views and a King Vulture was so heavy that it snapped a canopy branch that it tried to land on and had to pump its wings audibly to remain airborne.
