The Amazon basin is spectacular for wildlife. Unfortunately, I only had a small point-and-shoot camera with me, it was my first trip to a more exotic destination. I only got one bird picture of a Chestnut-eared Araçari.

Most of the bird pictures are from the visit to the Marashá Reserve during my trip to Colombia.
