Short birding trip with Freddy & Adela Drews (March 31st – April 3rd, 2013).

05 - 04 - 2013

In their recent visit to Colombia, Freddy & Adela Drews lingered for a short birding trip not far away from their family hometown in the city of Pereira (Central Andes). Thus, we agreed on visiting Otún-Quimbaya Wildlife Sanctuary, Cameguadua marsh & Rio Blanco. All three sites rendered us with incredible birds, including the endemic Cauca Guan, the rare Red-ruffed Fruitcrow, Stile´s Tapaculo, Blackish Rail, Brown-banded Antpitta & Masked Saltator, among many others.

From left to right: Freddy, Adela, Albeiro Uribe & Daniel at Rio Blanco. Albeiro is truly an innate birder with amazing skills and deep love for the elusive antpittas. Lots of fun feeding those little creatures and birding a gorgeous cloud forest!
