colombia-tour-group-otun-quimbayaColombia expedition leader Greg Homel checks-in from the road, where his group is enjoying time in Otun Quimbaya. This 489-hectare nature sanctuary was established in 1996 and provides much of the water to aqueducts throughout the famed Coffee Triangle.

NOVEMBER 9, 2014: Group Photo from my International Expeditions Colombia tour during our expedition to this expedition to this wonderful Central Andean Reserve in Risaralda, Colombia.

Some of the notable sightings here are Red-ruffed Fruitcrow, Andean Cock-of-the-Rock and Cauca Guan. Happy to report that we were successful in seeing all of them and many other great natural sights, including a troop of Red Howler-Monkeys!

Tomorrow we visit Parque Nacional Los Nevados and climb to over 13,000' elevation! We hope to see Yellow-Eared Parrot, Andean Condor and the endemic Bearded Helmetcrest.
