Birds at Huaorani Ecolodge

WAO! or WAORANI AMAZING – Life Net bird survey and banding team pulled it off. Twelve days of intensive fieldwork towards developing a bird list for ecotourism along the Shiripuno River at the Huaorani Ecolodge

What did we find?

We logged 220 species using birding and mist-netting – laughed daily with the Great Potoo, enjoyed views of White Hawks, and a Black Caracara family. We sunk in the mud for a glipse of a Sunbittern, slouthed for murders of Purple-throated Fruitcrows, and canoed by Spectacled Owls along the river. Thanks for all the hard work everyone.
