Sensational Suriname
Nov 2-19, 2005

  • Twenty minutes to half an hour go by when a huge raptor suddenly flies in from the right, just where I happen to be looking.  It is the young Harpy, and it lands on the lip of the nest.  Before we can zero in with the scope the bird flies, but then it stops again on a big branch....Paul Prevett reports

Bronzy jacamar

Birding Suriname - on the long run March - July 2005

  • From march until July 2005 I was honoured to have my internship at the Brownsberg Nature Park in Suriname. Birdwise absolutely fantastic because I could spend a lot of time in the field...Steven Wytema reports.

Suriname 23rd Oct - 7th Nov 2004

  • This was our first visit to South America and hopefully not our last since the continent has a whole lot to offer in birds, nature as well as culture wise....Since Wilma and me had only 12 days available Suriname was a good option as an introduction to the continent...Jos Wanten reports or or
