After a wonderful breakfast, we eagerly boarded our trusty skiffs to go out and explore more of the tributaries of the Amazon River. In the morning, we visited Yarapa Creek and had wonderful sightings of a mother and baby woolly monkey, monk saki monkeys, and lots of active squirrel monkeys. We also saw several species of birds, such as the long-billed wood creeper, black-collared hawks, yellow-headed caracaras, white-eared and paradise jacamars, among many others.

The incredible diversity of the Amazon River is not comparable to any other place on earth, and today it was a great example of this. Every time we looked there were lots of new things to see. It all falls nicely into place under the expert guidance of our local naturalists and skiff drivers.
