Mornings are a good time to observe some of the more than 1500 bird species that live in the Amazon. Enjoy tropical bird watching along the river in the early morning, the time when exotic colorful birds are the most active. The Amazon River and its tributaries are home to about 1,500 bird varieties.

You will wake up very early in the morning to do bird watching in the area of Amazon River and its tributaries home to about 1,500 bird varieties. You will start with a boat ride to one of the several tributaries of the Amazon River.  Look out for birds such as the Tuki (Jacana Jacana),  Ringed Kingfisher(Ceryle-Torquata), Black-Collared Hawk (Busarellus nigricollis), etc. Take note, there is a great number of bird species found just within the lodge area including a newly recorded specie for Peru, the Bare Face Ibis (Phimosus infuscatus) which was never documented before in the country.

We have two specialized bird watching programs of 5 and 7 days.
