Trip Report to Venezuela by Sue Bryan
26th February - 9th March 2014
Sue Bryan and Paul Jeffery
This was a birding holiday organised by Sunbird Tours www.sunbirdtours.co.uk/ which Paul and I undertook as we were interested in seeing a Harpy Eagle, a difficult species to see without the aid of help by a company who sub-contracts to local forest workers to find an active nest site. Venezuela or Guyana had long been on our to do list and the timing seemed about right for us. I am always concerned about birding in groups but luck was on our side as we had only 6 participants and two leaders. This was to be David Fishers last tour before his retirement and so was introducing Trevor Ellery (who leads for Sunbird in Columbia) to Venezuela to take over. Trevor was a real asset to our tour. The ground price for the tour was 2x £2360.

International flights to Caracas via Madrid cost 2x £770 return with Iberia (operated by British Airways) booked by Sunbird. I could have got the same flight a little bit cheaper had I booked independently, but for ease decided to let Sunbird deal with it.
For most of our tour we had a good minibus but whilst in Imataca Forest Reserve and Avila National Park we used two 4x4 vehicles. (It should be noted for independent travellers that obtaining petrol in Venezuela involves all day queuing but is exceedingly cheap) We also used two 4x4 vehicles in Avila National Park.
We obtained a small amount of Venezuelan Bolivar Fuerte exchanged for US Dollars from the ground agent upon arrival in Caracas. Most of this proved unnecessary as we did not need any money except for the purchase of evening beers and a few sweets!
The weather was very mixed, mainly hot and sunny for most of our time in the lower altitudes but with typical tropical showers. At La Escalera it was cooler with some rain but hot and windy on La Gran Sabana.
Most of our time was spent in jungle forest but we also had open areas at higher altitudes and whilst travelling.
We left Kings Lynn at midnight for our 0620hrs departure from Heathrow to fly to Madrid with BA and after transferring to an Iberia flight arrived in Caracas at 4pm. We were met in Caracas by ground agents who took us to a hotel a ten minute drive away on the coast. After a quick change Paul and I wandered into the harbour at the back of the hotel where the birding began.
Grey-breasted Martin, Black Vulture and Brown Pelican were difficult to miss as they flew overhead and Tropical Kingbird and Bananaquit are usually one of the first additions to any South American trip. It was good to see Magnificent Frigatebird flying out to sea as well as Laughing Gull and Spotted Sandpiper down on the shoreline. Back in the hotel gardens before dinner we added Black-faced Grassquit and Scaled Dove as well as Pale-breasted Thrush.
Cachamay National Park Orange-chinned Parakeet
We were up at 3.30 am for our 7am flight planned departure from Caracas to Puerto Ordaz. Unfortunately it was delayed but we eventually arrived in the city and were driven along with the rest of our group to Cachamay National Park where soon located Black-collared Swallow. We were lucky to see a couple of them perched on the boulders in the rapids. Ringed Kingfisher, Anhinga were also perched as we saw Smooth-billed Ani and Pied Water Tyrant in the surrounding vegetation. A Red-crowned Woodpecker was busy in its hole as Orange-chinned Parakeets sat noisily overhead.
We drove further south in the minibus stopping off at a few marshes where we added a few trip ticks in the way of Roadside Hawk, White-tailed Hawk, White-headed Marsh Tyrant and Yellow-chinned Spinetail. Black-bellied Whistling Duck were fairly numerous and there were a few White-faced Whistling Duck too. We admired a Solitary Sandpiper as well as 20+ Least Sandpiper. A couple of Brown-throated Parakeet were lifers as was a Black-collared Hawk.
Back on board the minibus we discussed the splitting of Common Gallinule from Common Moorhen and Paul and I had horrors of the trouble that this was going to cause our computer database as we have many records to alter!
Birds were added to the list as we travelled on southwards to El Palmar and our accommodation.
Yellow-chinned Spinetail Roadside Hawk
Once we arrived at our accommodation we deposited our luggage and birded along the road for a few miles out of the village.

A Blue-headed Parrot sat near the top a tree as a Venezuelan Troupial became another lifer for us. In the distance we saw Crested Oropendula and a Green Aricari as a Ruby Topaz Hummingbird added itself to our life list. We also saw Long-billed Starthroat and White-chested Emerald in roadside vegetation. A Streaked Flycatcher and Crane Hawk were added to the trip list before the sun set and we made our way back to El Palmar after a long day.
The day had finally arrived to see one of my dream birds. We awoke with great anticipation of the days events to come. After a dawn breakfast we split up into two 4x4 vehicles for the rough ride into Imataca Forest Reserve following an illegal gold mine track. We stopped to pick up Havier, a local who knew of a nest site in the forest which we would be keen to see!
The rough gold mine track into Imataca Forest
En route we stopped to admire Spixs Guan, Swallow-tailed Kite and Swallow-winged Puffbird.
Spixs Guan Swallow-tailed Kite
Swallow-winged Puffbird Black Nunbird
The track was a good one for birding and we added Rufescent Tiger Heron, Ochre-bellied Flycatcher, Grey-headed Kite, Reddish Hermit, Band-rumped Swift, Black Nunbird and Yellow-tufted Woodpecker. Orange-crowned Oriole was a lifer for me as was Trinidad Euphonia.
We bounced around along the track for quite a distance (we certainly needed a 4x4 as we dug deep into the mud on occasions) before finally arriving at a point where we could not drive any further. We got out and made our way to a shelter where we made our preparations for our walk into the jungle. We decided what equipment we would take with us along the narrow vegetated pathway. Two Red and Green Macaw were showing off above our heads perched high up in a tree. It seemed like a good omen.
Red and Green Macaw Our shelter
Havier and David led the way with Trevor bringing up the rear. The path led deeper into the jungle and we wondered how far we would have to walk, as we had been warned that it could be some distance as nest sites varied from year to year. Luckily for us it was not far before the narrow path opened up into a clearing. We were surprised to see a pylon-like structure built in it apparently constructed by the BBC for filming purposes! It rather destroyed the wildness of the place. Our eyes adjusted to the bright sunlight as we picked our way over vegetation and fallen trees and let our eyes drift up to the huge tree in front of us. There sat on branch was a massive HARPY EAGLE chick!

Paul climbing to the top of the tower
We were all a bit star-struck as we admired the Harpy Eagle gazing down at us and for a while took little notice of all the other birds around us. We enjoyed quite a while taking photographs and plucking up courage to climb to the top of the tower. Only Paul and Trevor had the courage to ascend the tower and Paul made it all the way to the platform where he must have had stunning views of the Harpy Eagle.
After Pauls descent we were soon back onto other birding and delighted in views of King Vulture, Dusky Antbird, Grey Antbird, Purple-throated Fruitcrow, Black-throated Trogon, a group of Cayenne Jay, Green Oropendula, Golden-winged Parakeet and Variegated Flycatcher. Andy was certainly good at picking out birds for the rest of the group to see. We said goodbye to the Harpy Eagle and made our way back to the shelter where we celebrated with a cup of coffee!
Grey-lined Hawk Red-fan Parrot
White-tailed Trogon Lineated Woodpecker
We had soon recovered and enjoyed new birds near where we had left the now muddy vehicles. A mating pair of White-lined Hawk kept us entertained as a Lineated Woodpecker also had procreation instincts. Red-fan Parrot were nearby as were Dusky-billed Parrolet. We moved the vehicles a few feet before jumping out near an open vista that gave us views of Red-rumped Cacique.
Our muddy 4x4 vehicle
The trees around a small holding abounded with birds including Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet, Cinnamon Woodcreeper, Forest Elaenia, Yellow-throated Woodpecker, White-vented Euphonia, Golden-sided Euphonia, Yellow-backed Tanager as well as Speckled Tanager. White-tailed Trogon added to my trogon delight as did a distant Bat Falcon perched in a far-off tree.
Black-eared Fairy White-crowned Manakin
Our day was not quite done though as we made our way along a dark track. Jan and I delighted in a small pool where small birds were coming down to drink and wash. It was such a shame that it was in deep shade and made photography so difficult as we pumped up the ISO on our cameras. This is not ideal for photographs of hummingbirds! Black-eared Fairy, Reddish Hermit and Fork-tailed Woodnymph were joined by a White-crowned Manakin, rarely seen out from deep vegetation!
We bumped our way back along the track where after dropping off Havier saw a Paraque on the road nearer one of the villages. We had all been enthralled with our sightings today and gladly accepted our cold showers!
We were up at dawn and after breakfast we picked up Havier and headed along the road stopping by the river. We had all swopped vehicles and I was a bit concerned about the smell of diesel. We noted Black Caracara and Rufous-capped Antthrush as we made our way along the dense vegetation by the side of the river. I managed to get reasonable views of Streamside (Neotropic River) Warbler but it was sometime before all of the group had good enough views of it as it lurked in the vegetation.

It was not easy as rain was falling and the mosquitoes loved it! A Helmeted Pygmy-Tyrant showed rather better as we made our way back to the vehicles. We stopped further along a trackway and walked for a while. The birds were coming thick and fast as I grappled to note them all down as well as try to take photos. A Screaming Phia was good to hear and see as I often relate this to being in the jungle. A Double-toothed Kite flew overhead as we watched Rufous-throated Sapphire, Ferruginous-backed Antbird, and Slaty-capped Shrike-Vireo.
Streaked Flycatcher Blue-black Grosbeak
The track was getting progressively worse and we got stuck in a few places. Our drivers did a brilliant job of getting through though as we made our way to a clearing where we stopped for a coffee at a shelter. He there were a few more photo opportunities. A Streaked Flycatcher perched lower down but most other birds were at the top of trees or flying overhead. We continued to walk down a track where a Blue-black Grosbeak called but it was some time before I eventually spotted it and managed to get the rest of the group on to it. We were lucky to come across an ant swarm but diving into deep vegetation to see all the birds was difficult. A Rufous-throated Antbird lurked as well as a Dusky Antbird following the ants as they crawled under our feet. Photography was impossible in the dark conditions. Out, back in the light a pair of Channel-billed Toucan sat at the top of a tree and we were delighted to see a Rose-breasted Chat further up the track-way. A Painted Tody-flycatcher gave us the run around as it called, but was difficult to locate.
The day was disappearing fast as we walked down another trail in the rain. Soon we had to make our way back in the vehicles along the extremely rough track. The diesel fumes in the back of the vehicle were getting the better of me and the rough conditions were not helping. After dropping off Havier I was glad to be back at the lodge. I sat down at dinner but it was not long before the diesel fumes had their way on my stomach. Luckily we were outside and I just about made the flower bed in time! (Apologies to the lodge owners!)
The group was up early as the drivers packed our luggage into the minibus for our five hour journey south to Las Claritas. As we left El Palmar we admired a Burrowing Owl sat on top of a wall and a Greyish Saltator sat in the garden. It was to be a long journey but we stopped at a marsh for some coffee. Here I loved the pair of Black-crested Antshrike as they appeared cheekily in the trees in front of me. A Streak-headed Woodcreeper also made an appearance as did Yellow Oriole and Lesser Goldfinch.

Savannah Hawk Horned Screamer
As we finished up our coffee a Savannah Hawk perched nearby before flying off over the fields. We watched a Rough-winged Swallow before getting back into the minibus. As we were travelling there was a sudden shout from the back of the bus. A Horned Screamer had been spotted and the driver pulled up allowing us out. I grabbed my camera just in time before it flew a very short distance. We quickly realised that there was not only another bird but it was sitting on a nest of three eggs. We backed off and noted a Zone-tailed Hawk flying overhead and a Pale-breasted Spinetail in roadside vegetation.
Peter Andy Paul and Trevor at Km17 El Dorado Green-tailed Jacamar
At Km 17 near Eldorado we stopped to have some lunch and walk a goldmine track under a line of pylons. The sun was shining and we were glad of some shade in the hot sun. Soon a Green-tailed Jacamar was spotted as was a Squirrel Cuckoo, Purple-throated Fruitcrow and Spotted Puffbird. A Guianan Toucanet was a lifer for us as was a Green-winged Trumpeter. Red-throated Caracara caused a bit of fun as they objected to a tape being played. We noted Black-headed Parrot and Mealy Parrot and then David caused a stir as I looked through his scope as a distant bird. It was a Dusky Purpletuft that flew before the rest of the group could locate it. Oh dear!

Spotted Puffbird Red-throated Caracara
We motored on and eventually arrived at Las Claritas in the dark. It was rather a noisy, busy town but accommodation is not easy to find in this remote region and our cabins at Campamento Turistico Anaconda were clean and comfortable for our needs. They even had air-conditioning and a warmish shower too!
Trevor and David on the La Escalera Road White-tailed Trogon
We left our accommodation after breakfast and drove up La Escalera towards La Gran Sabana. The road was a continuous climb through the dense forest to the top of the flat-topped mountains and rolling grasslands of La Gran Sabana leading to the Tepuis. We were here to find some of the Tepui endemics of the region. We stopped near the bend known locally a Rock of the Virgin. Here we watched Waved Woodpecker, Red-shouldered Tanager, Cliff Flycatcher, and White-tailed Trogon.
The second star bird of the trip was a want on most peoples list though and we were soon on our way to the spot where one or more were hoping to be seen. We tumbled out of the bus and luckily I was looking the right way as a bright orange Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock flew across the road and promptly disappeared. A few minutes later another one flew across the road and sadly Peter missed that too. We waited for some time and added Grey Antwren and Lemon-chested Greenlet but no more orange birds emerged. I am afraid that I only got a photograph of a juvenile Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock.
Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock (juv)
It was time to move on and Peter was promised that as we had several days birding here we would be making several more stops at the same spot. We moved on up to where we had an open vista and spotted two very distant White Bellbird. We enjoyed watching Brown Violetear, Black-hooded Thrush, Black-billed Thrush, Velvet-browed Brilliant, Pale-eyed Thrush and Olive-backed Tanager.
We continued until we reached the top of the mountain. Here we stopped for lunch at The Soldiers Monument.
Paul at the top of Gran Sabana Plumbeous Seedeater
Band-rumped Swift Tepui Brush- Finch
Here we saw Plumbeous Seedeater, Plain-crested Elaenia, Wedge-tailed Grassfinch, Golden-tufted (Tepui) Mountain Grackle, Bran-coloured Flycatcher and Rufous-collared Sparrow. After lunch we descended back into the forest and walked a short side-trail where birds were everywhere and once again I struggled to take notes and photographs whilst trying to keep up with the birds all at the same time.
Tepui Brush-Finch was added to the list as was Rufous-browed Solitaire, a female Scarlet-horned Manakin, Orange-bellied (Tepui) Manakin and Blackburnian Warbler. Further down the road we added Coraya Wren, Blue and White Swallow, Plumbeous Pigeon and White-tipped Swift. One more stop produced Chestnut-tipped Toucanet, Todds Antwren, Rose-collared Phia and Bearded Bellbird.
We drove back up the La Escalera but rain was making life difficult as we donned various coats and held umbrellas, not ideal when trying to hold binoculars and take photos. I spotted a Red-necked Woodpecker in a tree at the back as well as a Smoke-coloured Peewee. Tropical Parula and American Redstart were good migrant birds to see as well.
The rain got the better of us and we decided to drive up higher to get above the cloud base. The regional endemics came thick and fast as we added Tepui Spinetail, Tepui Greenlet, and Roraiman Antwren. The sun was out at the top and we spent some time admiring Brown Jacamar, White-winged Tanager and Black-headed Tanager.
White-winged Tanager Brown Jacamar
La Gran Sabana
We enjoyed the sun but took the decision to spend some time exploring the rolling grasslands at the top of La Gran Sabana. It was good to see the scenery at the top but bird-wise it was a bit disappointing as we did not add any trip ticks except Broad-winged Hawk. Back down the Escalera we walked one of our short trails again in the intermittent rain and were lucky to see Red-banded Fruiteater both male and female as well as Yellow-legged Thrush. I managed a picture of an Orange-bellied Manakin in the rain before we tried the spot for Rufous-breasted Sabrewing. I had stupidly left my camera in the bus and had to go back for it. By this time the sabrewing had retreated much further away. Lighting conditions were awful and we headed back home to Las Claritas.

Bus crash Waterfall at La Escalera
We birded La Escalera and witnessed the aftermath of a car which had slid down the hillside into a gully. The driver still in shock and stood at the side of the road awaiting recovery from a tractor. He was lucky to be alive. We had already passed a bus that had not made a bend a few weeks ago still upside down! The bends on the mountain road were dangerous and needed a cautious driver, especially on the way down.
Luckily the weather was better today and we added Blue-cheeked Parrot, Guianan Puffbird and Golden-olive Woodpecker by the Rock of the Virgin before Paul picked up an eagle sat in a tree way off in the distance. We set up scopes and admired a Black and White Hawk Eagle before it flew and perched a bit closer for us all to admire. Paul and I were pleased as it was a lifer for us. David then picked out a Pompadour Cotinga which was also pleasing. Lifers came thick and fast as we added Fulvous-crested Tanager, Mouse-coloured Antshrike, Buff-cheeked Greenlet, Roraiman Warbler, Fulvous Shrike Tanager and Ash-winged Antwren. A Flutist Wren gave us a run around as it flitted through thick vegetation. Up at the open vista I managed a picture of Yellow-bellied Tanager which is not easy when you are with a group and cannot get as close as you would like to for photography. I also managed to see a Tepui Swift which had eluded me all week. The day finished with a Wedge-billed Woodcreeper adding itself to the trip list.
San Isidro Jan and Paul by the rubbish dump
Sometimes good birding is to be had by some very unpleasant places and in this case David had had a tip-off that Capuchinbird had been seen 17km along the road from Las Claritas near San Isidro. We found the track and followed it. Unfortunately the track also turned out to be the towns rubbish dump. It stank! However the Black Vultures were loving it. We saw Flame-crested Tanager, Black-tailed Trogon, Guianan Streaked Antwren and Short-tailed Hawk that were new for our list but no Capuchinbird. A Red Howler Monkey seemed to be asleep in one of the trees though.

Guianan Streaked Antwren Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock site
After a while we made our way back up to La Escalera and I cursed as I had managed to catch Pauls cold that he had caught on the plane out. I was streaming. Grrrr
.. Golden-spangled Piculet put in a brief appearance and Plain Xenops, Masked Trogon and Black-capped Becard all showed at the Cock of-the-Rock site. I also managed a few shots of Roraiman Antwren high up in a tree and Peter saw his Guianan Cock-of-the Rock.
We moved a bit further along the road and Trevor heard a Scarlet-horned Manakin calling. I was delighted with views of a male even though it was extremely difficult to get a photograph due to the dense vegetation.
Scarlet-horned Manakin Roraiman Antwren
By the end of the day we added Spotted Tanager, Fiery-shouldered Parakeet and Black-necked Aricari to our trip list too.
I was not feeling well as my cold had taken hold. Today we had to head back to Puerto Ordaz to catch our flight back to Caracas so therefore we were going to spend most of the day travelling in the minibus. Luckily this meant I could spend most of the day sitting down. I hate it when I am ill on holiday. We said our goodbyes to our hosts and started our journey north. Eighteen kilometres south of El Dorado we birded the track underneath the pylon route again.
Milk Snake (Lampropeltis triangulum)
It wasnt long before I needed to find a bush and nearly stepped on a snake. It was still writhing but unfortunately someone had run over it on a motorbike on their way to an illegal gold mine. I called the rest of the group to come and look and we were concerned that it could be a poisonous Coral Snake. I have subsequently learnt that since red was next to black we were alright Jack!
Although I did not add any lifers on this day we did add Chestnut Woodpecker, White-flanked Antwren, Guianan Slaty Antshrike, White-browed Antbird, White-shouldered Tanager and Rusty-margined Flycatcher to the trip list. The rest of the group were delighted when they added good views of Dusky Purpletuft to their life list.
White-browed Antbird Pearl Kite
Stopping at a Las Mureas Marsh for lunch we met up with another birding group. Here we saw more Horned Screamer, Pinnated Bittern and Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture as well as many Yellow-headed Blackbird. Peter was desperate for a Pearl Kite and so Trevor, who was travelling in the front of the minibus was put in charge of finding one. At Upata he did just that and we all added Pearl Kite to the trip list.
We arrived at Puerto Ordaz and flew back to Caracas where I felt too poorly to attend the evening meal along with the others and went to bed.
We were up early and packed and met downstairs in the hotel to say our goodbyes to David and Trevor who were leaving for the Andes with some of the group. Four of us we were being handed over to two local birders who were going to show us Avila National Park, part of the coastal range of mountains using two 4x4 vehicles. Jonathan and Carolina were charged with showing us as many local specialities as possible in a morning before our flight home.
Avila National Park
The coastal mountains were a completely new habitat and certainly deserved more than a mornings birding. How I wished we had booked an extra day or two here! After an hours steep climb we got out of the vehicles and watched Montane Woodcreeper, Fulvous-headed Tanager, Golden-breasted Fruiteater, Golden Tanager, Speckled Hummingbird, Ochre-breasted Brush-Finch, Groove-billed Toucanet and Black-eared Parakeet. Peter had requested Caracas Tapaculo and sure enough Jonathan produced not one but two for us to see. Black-throated Spinetail and Blue-capped Tanager quickly followed as did Ornate Hawk Eagle and White-throated Tyrannulet.
All of a sudden we were diving into vegetation after a Chestnut-crowned Antpitta. I was delighted and so were the others. Venezuelan Tyrannulet did not seem half as exciting as we added Mountain Elaenia, Crested Spinetail and Black Hawk Eagle. A Ferruginous Pygmy Owl landed in a tree as we entered a park but I was not tall enough to see it. It did bring in a lot of birds to the tree though. Brown-capped Vireo, Rufous-lored Tyrannulet, Hepatic Tanager, Rusty Flowerpiercer, Green-tailed Emerald and Blue-naped Chlrophonia were all added to the list.
Green (Inca) Jay White-tipped Quetzal
It was time for lunch and we enjoyed the sun at the café watching a Green (Inca) Jay before descending back down the hill. A White-tipped Quetzal was our last trip tick and lifer for the trip. It seemed a fitting end before our flight home from Caracas. We thanked Jonathan and Carolina for an excellent mornings birding and picked up our bags hurriedly from the hotel before being taken to the airport for our flight to London via Madrid.
