Marvelous Spatuletail tour for only 10 days including: Tarapoto area (Cordillera Escalera Reserve, Koepecks Hermit Station, Moyobamba Valley, Aguas Verdes (Arena Blanca Reserve), Afluente, Fundo Alto Nieva, Abra Patricia (Owlet Lodge), Pomacochas (Huembo Center).
Marvelous Spatuletail (Loddigesia mirabilis), the most outlandishly ornamented of hummingbirds frequenting at Huembo Center, an adult male Loddigesia is truly a wonder. We willl target during our days: Royal Sunangel, Ecuadorian Piedtail, Speckle-breasted Piculet, Equatorial Graytail, Ochre-fronted, Rusty-breasted, Chestnut, and Rusty-tinged antpittas, Bar winged Wood-Wren, Yellow-scarfed Tanager, Johnson’s Tody-Flycatcher, Chestnut-crested Cotinga, and Cinnamon Screech-Owl. We even have an excellent chance of hearing, and a reasonable chance of seeing, the bizarre Long-whiskered Owlet.
Tarapoto and Moyobamba that have an array of additional species, some of which are especially interesting, like the recently described Mishana Tyrannulet, the huallagae form of Maranon Slaty-Antshrike, the recently-described Painted Manakin (part of the Striped Manakin complex), the scarce Blackish Pewee, Plumbeous Euphonia, Dotted Tanager, Golden-headed Manakin, Rufous-Crested Coquette and many others for sure.
We invite you to join us for this amazing birding time together with great chance to get amazing photos.
Have a nice Trip!
