Watching Birds in the Peruvian Amazon
One of the trips from the hostel when you spend a few days expedition to the jungle ,is for bird watching. Ideally, do it from a clear sky area, and around here, that means large rivers or lakes/ponds. We did it in the Lake Yarina. You have to get up very early, because the birds are early risers, and after sunrise, the task is greatly complicated. Finding them is difficult task, because you have to look between the thick vegetation, and the sound of the jungle does not help much, because they sound pio-ples everywhere, sometimes not even those who seem chirping birds, and other times, birds imitators make you think that "there" there are monkeys.
