Birds of the Amazon

I may not have done too much bird watching, but just canoeing down the Napo the birds came to me. Only a few birds in the area are considered endangered by the IUCN and I was lucky enough to see a couple rare ones. However, the way things are going the whole rainforest is experiencing extreme habitat loss and if we don’t start protecting the home of these amazing guys they will soon all be in peril. Here are some of my favorite images of the birds of the Amazon.

For an admitted non-birder, you sure got some great photos. I am more a "mammaler" myself as well but it is hard to not be in awe at the exotic and colorful birds of the rainforest.
