1. Bogota Wetlands - Eastern Andes - Colombia

Bogota Wetlands - Eastern Andes - Colombia

What is amazing about Bogota is that it offers excellent birding opportunities within city limits, with a network of urban parks in one of Latin America's most modern cities. It is the remnants of what was once a vast network of wetlands and lakes, and offers unique birding opportunities within a metropolis, most notably in La Florida and La Conejera wetlands. The reed beds are home to the endemic Bogota Rail and Apolinar's Marsh-wren, and are also home to Yellow-hooded Blackbird and Subtropical Doradito. Open waters harbor large numbers of Ruddy Duck, American Coot, Common Moorhen and Spot-flanked Gallinule. Another treat is the endemic Silvery-throated Spinetail, and the hyperactive Rufous-browed Conebill. The network of reserves sits at 2,600 m (8,530 ft).
