(October 10)
Bridge-Paz de las Aves
The Paz de las Aves Reserve features subtropical forest at about 6,000 feet.
The Andean Cock-of-the-Rock is a large brightly-colored bird with an oddly-shaped head. It gets its name from the fact that the males get together every morning at dawn and have a contest to see who can scream the loudest.
