Identidad Madidi BITÁCORA DE VIAJE

Blog feed


In the early morning in a break between significant rain showers a flowering shrub draws the attention of the team as hummingbirds gather in a feeding frenzy including the striking rufous-crested coquette (Lophornis delattrei). In the evening another incredible new record for Madidi as a tube-lipped nectar bat (Anoura fistulata) is captured, only the fourth record anywhere following this species description in Ecuador in 2005. This species of bat has the longest tongue proportional to its body of any mammal, which it extends 8.5 cm to feed on nectar from the deepest flowers.
