If you want to find birds in Bolivia while saving a few thousands, take Michael to the national park Amboró or any “green” site and you’ll end up with a long and marvelous. We visited Volcanes: Bolivian Recurvebill, Slaty Gnateater, Yungas Manakin; around Samaipata: Spot-breasted Thornbird, Rufous-capped Antshrike, a family group of Quetzals, Chestnut-crested Cotinga; a family group of Green Jays, Black and rufous Warbling-finch; in Saipina: 24 pairs of Fronted Macaws, family groups of White-fronted Woodpeckers, Bolivian Earth-creeper, a pair of White-tipped Plantcutters; in Siberia: Black-hooded Sunbeam (very lucky), Hooded Mountain-toucan, very tame Black-throated Thistletails, White-eared Solitaire, Green-throated Tanager and Plushcap. Its curious how places so close to each other belong to ecosystems so
diverse, but they are all similar in one aspect, they’re great for bird-watching. And the specialties cooperated with Michael as if he had released them in front of us.
