We just began our expedition in the vast Upper Amazon region aboard Delfin II.  The rainforest is sunny with no rain for today, and the level of the river is very high. We would love to have a dry week, as dry days allow us to explore more and have outings until sunset. But of course, this is the rainforest, and it could rain at any time!

This morning we explored the Amazon Natural Park, and then in the afternoon we continued to Nauta Creek. This area is home to many species of raptors, such as the yellow-headed caracara and the black-collared hawk. This region also has an enormous swamp, home to birds such as horned screamers and many others.
