Cordillera Escalera - days 9-12

Just a quick entry before I go to Yurimaguas for a few days. Looking for higher elevation Heliconius in the past few days from 800-1200+ metres has yielded a few good birds. My brother Alistair, on holiday in Peru, came up to Tarapoto from Cuzco and soon stubbled upon a Blackish Nightjar (photo below). Other good birds have included the endemic Koepcke's Hermit plus Rufous-rumped Antwren, Red-stained Woodpecker, White-throated Toucan, Three-striped Warbler, Green Jay and Bay-headed Tananger. Locally around Tarapoto I tracked a Neotropical River Otter along the Rio Shilcayo for over a 100 metres.
