Training for the Big Day

Our roots are in the field! Johnnier Arango, our main guide, supported Serraniagua's birding group in their preparation for the Global Big Day wich will be celebrated this May 5th around the world.

The day started at 3:40 AM with a single practice of how to owling, where to focus the ears and was followed by an intense birding day in the Galápagos Community Nature Reserve and the road to San José del Palmar on the west face of Western Andes of Colombia.


The stunning cloud forest of the Galápagos reserve provided us with great views of the #endemic Gold-Ringed Tanager (Bangsia aureocincta), we got photographies of the rare Beautiful Jay (Cyanolyca pulchra) and the Chocó endemic Orange-breasted Fruiteater (Pipreola jucunda). Other specialties seen this day were Indigo Flowerpiercer (Diglossa indigotica), Dusky Chlorospingus (Chlorospingus semifuscus), Black Solitaire (Entomodestes coracinus), Choco Brush-finch (Atlapetes crassus) and the very uncommon Fulvous-dotted Treerunner (Margarornis stellatus).


Great moments with this new generation of birders.
