May 24, 2018 - Delfin II
We found out early in our trip that getting up early in the morning has wonderful payoffs in wildlife sightings. This morning we stayed out just a little longer than usual, and 27 species of birds, 5 species of mammals and a blue morpho butterfly later, we returned for breakfast. It wasn’t just the sightings of the morning that were special; it was the sounds as well. The chatter went from kingfishers to undulated tinamou’s to the high-pitched calls of the saddleback tamarins.
For the afternoon we stayed out late to look for caimans. We found so much more. From a tropical screech owl to great potoo to two common potoos, one that let us get so close we could almost touch it. Oh yes, and both spectacle and black caiman were found. A great end to another awesome day exploring the Amazon Basin on board the Delfin II.
