Birding Around Tena in the Amazon Rainforest

Tena is an attractive place where many travelers find themselves hanging around quite happily for days before or after a trip into the Rainforest.

Tena “Capital of the Country of Cinnamon”, or also known as San Juan de Los Dos Ríos de Tena.

Tena is located in the rainforest, 420m above sea level. There is rainfall year-round, with an annual average of 171.65 inches (4,359.91 mm). The heaviest rains come in April, May, and June.

It is located in the Amazon Region, three and a half hours from the city of Quito, and three hours from the city of Ambato.

Tena is surrounded by forested hills and is located at the edge of the Andes, which are visible to the west.

Its main activity is tourism since it has a diversity of natural attractions and cultural manifestations that are located in each of the parishes, which have special characteristics that allow visitors to know their history and traditions of the Kichwa and ethnic groups. Huaorani.

Tena and its surrounding indigenous communities are also bases for many volunteers working for reforestation projects, with community support in development initiatives in diverse, and connected areas such as ecotourism and capacity building.

Agriculture, commerce in general and its friendly and hospitable people make this place a destination to rest and enjoy its natural and cultural biodiversity to the fullest.

For the budget-conscious birder, a visit to Tena might be the better option for an affordable birdwatching trip, It might possibly squeeze an extra 2 to 4 nights spent somewhere in the Amazon Basin.

Day trips out on the river or walking in local secondary forests can quickly tally up many bird species.

If you want to see the beautiful and prehistoric-looking Hoatzin, make sure to visit the Laguna Paikawe near Misahualli.

Tena is short with a series of a network of trails where you could go birdwatching on your own. In a near-future, there would be a trailing network or self-guided birdwatching trails.

Perhaps a local bird guide has to be accompanied for safety reasons or whatever. Try to join group outings with locals birdwatching groups.
