We are expanding our Field Guides Colombia offerings to include this spectacular destination in the far-eastern part of the country. This itinerary will explore the confluence of the Guaviarae and Inírida rivers, two large rivers that form part of the Orinocan watershed. This area is a transition zone between the Venezuelan and Colombian llanos (or savanna), and the Amazon Basin.

With more than 500 species recorded in the area, this tour will sample some of the best white-sand and varzea forest habitats that Colombia has to offer. We will target several limited-range species like Yapacana Antbird, Spot-backed Antwren, Yellow-crowned Manakin, Azure-naped Jay, Orinoco Piculet, Orinoco Softtail, and White-naped Seedeater. In addition to these species, there is a host of other must-see birds like Ruby-topaz Hummingbird, Capuchinbird, both Purple-breasted and Pompadour cotingas, Black Manakin, Spotted Puffbird, Brown, Bronzy and Paradise jacamars, Bare-necked Fruitcrow, Plumbeous Euphonia, and Opal-rumped and Flame-crested Tanagers.

This tour will also visit the spectacular Mavecure “hills,” a large mountain outcrop that is geologically part of the Guiana Shield. It will also include unique experiences with the regional culture and indigenous groups (like the Curipaco Indians), and a tasting of local delicacies, including possibly grilled sapuare (a river fish) with garlic.
