Hi All. Due to all the rain and more in the forecast for tomorrow, I've cancelled this get-together. Thank you for your interest. Hopefully, we'll reschedule some mothing for this place during moth week or earlier!

List of Birds Observed at the Tambopata Research Center in 2006

I took a trip to Peru in 2006 and visited the Tambopata Research Center on the Tambopata River. I took lots of pictures, but was relieved of my camera and a few other possessions by three young men with weapons upon my return to Lima. Fortunately, I did write a few things down. I recently came across the list of animals I saw on the trip and I thought iNat would be a good place to keep it. The common names I'm giving here were the names given to me by the guide I was with. One of the best parts of the trip was birding at the Chuncho Clay Lick. Hundreds of birds the likes of which I'd only seen in pet stores arrived in the wee hours of the morning. Wish I had those photos.
