We united a few ecosystems in one region. Here you can find wetlands, forests, swamps, rivers and creeks, lagoon.Because of this peculiar environment, you will have the advantage to observe shorebirds, forest birds, night birds.Along the year, with two different seasons also we encounter different birds species. For example, during the dry season, we can see more shorebirds like the glossy ibis, roseate spoonbill, limpkin, Lapwing and plovers, Stilt, Sandpipers. Meanwhile, during the rainy season, we are exploring more often the forest along the river, such as the bellbird, cotinga, Ovenbirds and woodcreepers, woodpeckers, Trogons, Hawks, and kites.

As a personal preference, those are the 3 birds that I always enjoy when I see them: The Jabirú, the Agami Heron, and the Sungrebe.Around Caño Negro National Refuge, during a bad day, you can probably spot around 50 species of birds during a 3 hours boat tour.
