Abstract

111 species of birds were observed and identified in the Madre de Dios region of Peru by sight and sound exemplifying the great diversity among birds in the neotropics. Some examples of the birds identified are: Hoatzins, Scarlet Macaws, White-throated Toucans, Gilded Barbets, Festive Coquettes, Band-tailed Manakins, etc. Calls were heard and birds were observed using binoculars and documented while traveling on foot and by boat in various locations, including: Inkaterra Guides Field Station, Isla de Monos, Carachamayoc Farms, Inkaterra Canopy, and Lago Sandoval. Species were documented using ebird, contributing to the important field of citizen science.
