Naturetrek tour day 6!

We arrived at Regua yesterday having stopped off briefly on the Cedae Trail on the way down the mountains picking up Black-throated Grosbeak, Mantled Hawk, Black-cheeked Gnateater, Red-necked Tanager, Green-headed Tanager, Plain-winged Woodcreeper and Green Honeycreeper. Lots of new species as we hadn’t visited the lowlands so far on this trip. Today we spent the day birding the Green Trail, a little quiet but still picked up some great species. Highlights over the past couple of days have included Silvery-flanked Antwren, Unicoloured Antwren, Rufous-tailed Jacamar, Southern Antpipit, Lesser Woodcreeper, White-eyed Foliage Gleaner, Black-capped Foliage Gleaner, Red-crowned Ant-Tanager, Rufous-capped Antthrush, Scaled Antbird and Black-throated Trogon. We also had a very successful evening of night birding with great views of Giant Snipe, Tawny-browed Owl and Black-banded Owl!
