Aug 27, 2018 - Delfin II
Our first full day in the Amazon proved to be quite productive. We tried to squeeze in as many activities as possible during this day, and to do that, we had to start early. 100% participation from guests on our first early outing skiff-ride showed their eagerness and enthusiasm.
We chose to start our trip by visiting a well-known but little visited place known as Iquitos Creek. It was a good choice, as within the first half hour we had already seen two of the most difficult birds to see in the Amazon (due their normal nocturnal behavior), a great potoo (nyctibius grandis) and the ferruginous pygmy owl (glaucidium brasilianum).
The rest of the day was a mixture of skiff rides and a great walk in one of the last remnants of primary forest in the region; this included paddling a lake on locally made “canoemarans” which is nothing but two canoes nail-boarded together to create an endemic form of catamarans, and a walk over suspended bridges to enjoy the forest in all its grandeur!
