Bird watching Waorani


Discover the Magic of Bird Watching in the Amazon Rainforest!

Day 1: Welcome to Minta Lodge and the Shiripuno Community in Waorani Territory

In the heart of Yasuni National Park, an extraordinary adventure awaits you. Get ready to witness the natural spectacle of four species of macaws soaring over this incredible territory. Moreover, you'll have the chance to listen to rarities like the elusive nocturnal paujón, the black-listed owl, and the majestic gray-winged trumpeters. You can also enjoy the enchanting call of the Great Potoo, the mysterious screeches of the Caracaras, the distinctive cow-like call of the Rufescent Tiger Heron, and the melodious serenade of the Pauraque.

Day 2: Immersion in the Amazon Rainforest

We start early with a walk along the trails to discover birds like the banded antshrike, the white-plumed antbird, and the sooty antbird. We'll also explore the territories of the rare Banded Antwren, Waved Antshrike, Pearl-spotted Antbird, and Yellow-billed Jacamar. You'll have the opportunity to admire the Striped Manakin and the Golden-headed Manakin. Lunch will be a delightful pause before we explore a flooded forest to search for the white-plumed antbird, long-billed woodcreeper, green-and-rufous kingfisher, and the chestnut-headed fledgling. Dinner and accommodation will provide a chance to recharge.

Day 3: Adventure from a Natural Overlook

A walk will take us to a natural overlook where we'll have the opportunity to observe birds like the Chestnut Jacamar, Yellow-billed Nunbird, Yellow-bellied Tanager, Purple Honeycreeper, Shimmering Cotinga, Black-tailed Tityra, Yellow-browed Flycatcher, and Paradise Tanager.

Day 4: Navigation and Arrival at the Shiripuno Community

We'll depart early in the morning to navigate the Napo River, where you'll be treated to a spectacle of birds, including toucans, parrots, and macaws. We'll arrive at the Shiripuno community to rest and prepare for more adventures.

Day 5: Encounter with Scarlet Macaws

After breakfast, a walk will take us to a natural salt lick where you can observe the majestic scarlet macaws, blue-and-yellow macaws, parrots, and parakeets, along with the ocellated woodcreeper, spotted puffbird, black-necked cotinga, slate-colored mourner, long-winged antwren, and other fascinating species. Lunch at the lodge and additional species searching in the afternoon.

Day 6: Bird Watching along the Shiripuno River

After breakfast, we'll navigate back to Minta Lodge, where you'll enjoy an afternoon of hiking. Along this trail, you'll have the chance to spot mixed flocks of crimson-crested woodpecker, rufous-tailed antwren, barred woodcreeper, and more. Additionally, we'll visit the lekking site of the blue-crowned manakin and the white-crowned manakin.

Day 7: Return to the City of Coca

After breakfast, we'll pack our memories and embark on the journey back to the city of Coca, with hearts full of unforgettable experiences.
