19 Nov 2018  Colombia

I was in Colombia from 3-9 Nov, part of a friendly ragbag of journos and tour leaders invited by ProColombia to join a trip initiated by BirdLife International in recognition of ProColombia being a 'Species Champion' for Canada Warbler in BirdLife's Preventing Extinctions Programme. This page consolidates the five blogs I have written about the trip, thereby providing a jump-off point for exploration of the Central Colombian Andes.

From exceedingly venomous snakes, to paternal frogs, metamorphosing cicadas and stunning moths.
