May 04, 2019 - Delfin II
Our final day exploring the Upper Amazon began with a lovely sunrise. Delfin II spent the night near the mouth of the Supay River. We could hear the call of birds, so we loaded onto watercraft to go and explore this river before breakfast.
Different species of birds were sighted here. Flocks of sand-colored nighthawks were spotted resting in shrubs alongside black-crowned night herons. It was spectacular getting to see them take off from their perch.
During breakfast Delfin II repositioned next to the mouth of another tributary of the Iricahua River. This narrow river was a highpoint of our expedition. Red and green macaws were seen by our guests, and in the company of other characteristic species like blue and yellow macaws, the white-eared jacamar, masked crimson tanagers, and several others.
After lunch we relocated to Yarapa River. This was the last place of our voyage to explore on watercraft. Nature was kind to us as she allowed many other species of animals and birds to show up for our delight.
As the sun began to set, we all gather back on board to share our thoughts of how great it had been these seven days exploring the amazing Upper Amazon.
