The bird’s-eye view of Puerto Maldonado, Peru, at the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers, signals that we have left Borneo for the New World, our Peruvian Rainforests of the Tambopata tour, with guide Jesse Fagan. (Photo by participant Dorothy Paul.)
But let’s back up. Before the group even reached the Tambopata River, they had a date with a special bird that only inhabits Guadua bamboo thickets in a very small area of Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil. Here guide Jesse Fagan signals the group's success in the Forestal Otorongo! (Photo by participant Miles Paul.)
