On the first morning of our expedition, we prepared for the day at sunrise. Our first outing was a pre-breakfast excursion timed to take advantage of peak wildlife activity, which occurs in the morning in equatorial areas. Our second and more extensive outing took place after a very nutritious breakfast filled with conversations about what we had just seen and what was about to come. We explored the shores of Clavero Lake and later entered a caño, a small tributary, where we were surrounded by forest and wildlife. In the afternoon, we headed to another tributary, Supay Caño, for more face-to-face wildlife experiences.
