Andes and Amazon + AGM

The short Ornithology Section AGM will be followed by an “in-house” talk by Giles Morris

This is an account of the wildlife and habitats seen on a visit to Peru and Ecuador in 2016. It will focus on the wildlife of three main ecosystems: the high Andes in Peru, the cloud forest in Ecuador and the tropical rainforest of the Napo River in Ecuador. The diversity of the avifauna in these areas is staggering and many of the birds are spectacularly colourful but the talk will also try to give a flavour of the vegetation and other animal groups in these areas, as well as touching on the influence of the human population.
