Some Birds in the Ecuadorian Amazon
In the Amazon, we stayed at Sani Lodge. Sani Lodge is locaed on 90,000 acres of pristine Amazon rainforest. About 550 species of
birds have been recorded on the property and this figure continues to rise. The lodge and surrounding lands are owned and operated
by the Comuna Sani Isla, an indigenous community of the Kichwa Nationality of the Napo River. It is the largest privately-owned area
of protected rainforest in Ecuador.

The lodge is just terrific. Wonderful rooms. Awesome staff. Amazing food. You could not find a better place to relax, and fortuantely for
us, the weather was not too hot for a couple from Seattle.
Riding down the Rio Napo.
Then a one mile walk to the dugout canoes.
Finally, a two mile dugout canoe ride to the lodge. A serene
and quiet place to stay.
