Selva Alta


A trip to “La Cuchilla de San Juan”, one of the most difficult trials, took place in a forest known as “La Selva Alta” accessing to “La Cuchilla” through the way to Belén de Umbría in order to photograph a lek of The Andean cock-of-the-rock, also known as tunqui. Moreover, Jaime and I went there with the company of my partner Cristina Jaramillo, Hoover the tour guide and our driver Jairo. Although it took 3 hours to get there, it was worthy; we saw The Andean cock-of-the-rock and we had a tasty snack. However, it was raining what made the return way more difficult. Finally, we had trout for lunch in a beautiful country side house, and in the afternoon, when the sun rose, we looked for the cock-of-the-rock, but we could only see them from the distance.

Otún Quimbaya

A trip to “La Suiza”. Sanctuary of flora and fauna Otun-Quimbaya in Pereira. Some days ago, we were in this sanctuary with Jaime Andres Suarez and Silvia Castaño as companions; of course, we saw beautiful birds in the different trails. Moreover, the attention and care in the local hotel, coordinated by the local people of the region, was wonderful. This is an amazing place for bird-watching and relaxing as it is full of nature and beautiful landscapes that is just 45 minutes away from Pereira.

A trip to Quindio River


The Torrent Ducks (Merganetta armata) are common by the river. We saw 12 couples in a 7 km track in front of the house “El Cairo” by entering to “El Valle del Cocora”. We had such a nice time watching the ducks and understanding their particular behavior. These birds act in stable couple and share the raising of their ducklings in an incredible way: While the male watches the nearby land, the female takes the ducklings, one by one, and teaches them how to handle the torrents of the river; meanwhile, the other ducklings wait safely in a little cave in the rocks waiting for their turn. In a last trip to the river we had the company of L.G Olarte, J.D Ramirez and L.E Mejia, who visited us from Medellin. It was a successful afternoon for everyone.

Planes of San Rafael


A wonderful place to observe nature, birds and different flora of wet forest of the east side of Tatamá Hill which is about 2,100 m. It is located at about 1 h and 45 m from Pereira though the way that leads to the municipality of Sanctuary. Plans are very close from there and it has a very comfortable hostel whose administration is in charge of the community who welcome visitors with care. In this opportunity, we invited Edmundo Hernandez and Stella, a nature lover couple and unconditional friends of ATA. We have visited this place several times since, maybe, it is the shortest path to get to Tatamá and specially we prefer this path because in the trees and trails of Planes you can feel, hear and even smell the primary forest. Remember that Tatamá is considered one of the most biodiverse places in the world and we must protect it over any cost.

To San José del Palmar, Chocó.

In a hidden nook in the foothills of the Hill of Tatamá we found these wonderful birds, some of them endemic. This condition makes this place to have one of the highest rates of birds of the country.

Tatamá is a geographical feature of the western Cordillera of the Andes. It is located in the join point of three departments: Risaralda, Valle y Chocó. In remotes times, the top, of 4.250 m.s.n.m, was cover in snow. Additionally, there are different ways of accessing to this place and one these is the way to San José del Palmar, which is a municipality situated on the western hillside; this forest has a big influence of the pacific.
