Birds and mammals of the Amazon rainforest
12-19 August 2005
Are you looking for an exciting birding trip? The Amazon rainforest is the ideal destination, as it hosts colorful parrots, toucans, herons and other countless birds. But birds are not the only inhabitants, as you will easily observe squirrels, tapirs and monkeys (including world's smallest monkey) just to say some example.
