Birdwatching at Keköldi Indian Reserve
Average 50.000 birds per day during the season
This tour takes place in the Keköldi Indian Reserve, an ideal location for bird watching in different habitats. We will make short stops during the trajectory until get to a tower, which is a migratory bird watching research center. This place is considered the third most important in the world for the sighting of birds of prey.
From this viewpoint we watch an average of 50.000 to 450.000 birds per day during the season. Among them are species like hawks, falcons, red-headed buzzards, heron stork s, toucans, parrots, hawks, manaquines, tanagers, a variety of hummingbirds, honeycreepers, euphonies , orioles, warblers, flycatchers, trogons, the blackchested magpie (endemic from the Caribbean low slope), and the surprising Buco Barbón.
Migration occurs from north to south, between August and December, and from south to north between February and May; but we have a great diversity of endemic birds throughout the year.
