GUYANA - AN ADVENTURE IN BIRDING WITH JAMES CURRIE
In Guyana, you always need to keep your eyes on the treetops and have your binoculars ready. Guyana is home to over 800 species of bird including the Harpy Eagle, Sun Parakeet, a number of McCaw species, and the elusive Red Siskin. Recently, the International Birding Authority, James Currie, was in Guyana for a true birding adventure. Now you can share that adventure by clicking on the videos below.
James Currie is a life-long wildlife enthusiast, and internationally recognized television personality, hosting nature-based shows such as “Nikon’s Birding Adventures,” which ran on the Discovery Channel and NBC for 10 seasons. Most recently, he’s the host of a new series, “A Wild Connection,” which appears on YouTube.
An estimated 80% of Guyana’s primary rainforest remains intact and is complemented by a rich diversity of habitats such as savannah grasslands, mangrove forests and coastal wetlands. Together, they are a thriving habitat for birdlife. Guyana is blessed to have species that are not overly difficult to see such as the Harpy and Crested Eagles, Guianan cock-of-the-rock, Sun Parakeet, and the colourful Hoatzin, Guyana’s glamorous national bird and directly related to the archaeopteryx, the first known bird.
