Trip Information

Advice for Birders Exploring the Amazon's Avian Paradise

1. Embrace the Seasons:
- The Amazon is a dynamic ecosystem with distinct wet and dry seasons. To maximize your birdwatching experience, consider visiting during the dry season (June to November). During this period, bird activity increases as water levels recede, concentrating wildlife near water sources for easier viewing.

2. Focus on Specialized Habitats:
- The Amazon boasts an array of unique ecosystems, each hosting different bird species. Explore diverse habitats like oxbow lakes, varzea forests, and terra firme forests. For colorful parrots and macaws, visit clay licks in Tambopata during the early morning hours.

3. Marvel at Migration:
- Witnessing neotropical migratory birds in the Amazon is a treat. Keep an eye out for species like the Yellow Warbler and Cerulean Warbler during their winter migration from North America to South America, usually between September and April.

4. Seek out Mixed Flocks:
- Amazonian mixed-species flocks are a phenomenon to behold. These gatherings can include dozens of species, making for spectacular viewing. Look for fruiting trees during the early morning or late afternoon, as they attract these vibrant assemblies.

5. Be Patient and Respectful:
- The Amazon's biodiversity is astounding, but many species are elusive. Patience is key; spend time quietly observing and listening. Avoid playback calls, as they can stress birds during breeding season. Be a responsible birder, leaving no trace of your presence and respecting local regulations.

Remember, the Amazon is not just a place to check birds off a list; it's a place to connect with the pulse of the wild. Let the majesty of this ecosystem touch your soul, and you'll carry the memory of its feathered wonders with you forever. Happy birdwatching!

However, we’ll design your travels with you, so if you have a special hotel request or want to opt for a mid-range level of lodging to reduce costs, we’ll be happy to adjust the itinerary accordingly. We include all meals, snacks, and interesting things we encounter en route – fruits you pick from trees, fish you catch, homemade candies or homemade beer. We are expert with dietary requirements like Kosher or vegan — and the opposite extreme as well.
