Our preliminary birding efforts have yielded 339 observed bird species, all listed here. With the help of guests and researchers, we hope to do justice to the stunning biodiversity of the Reserve and add more to the list – we estimate there are more than 350 in total. This list includes the threatened Masked Antpitta (Hylopezus auricularis – a rare endemic species classified as vulnerable by IUCN and recorded at several distinct locations inside the reserve) and the threatened White-throated Toucan, as well as 4 species of large Ara macaws.
