Colombia es el primer país del mundo en diversidad de aves (1.889 especies), lo que equivale al 20 % de las especies de pájaros en la Tierra. El departamento de Amazonas cuenta con una amplia variedad de aves distribuidas por todo el área. La actividad de birdwatching o avista miento de aves ha crecido durante los últimos años en Colombia, creando un nuevo mercado y segmento en el turismo que se desarrolla en el país.

Para el desarrollo de esta actividad, les recomendamos los lagos y humedales donde puede tener un mejor acceso y facilidad para el avista miento de aves.

Esta es una pequeña guía que he estado realizando durante los últimos años, aquí puede encontrar el nombre en ingles, español y nombre científico como también esta organizado por las diferentes categorías. * Las aves que encontrara son exclusivamente del Amazonas.

Si usted esta pensando viajar al Amazonas, puede imprimir esta guía o salvar esta pagina web para tener un fácil acceso.

This is a list that i made with the common and scientific name. Some birds are really common and easy to spot when you visit the Amazon.
