After a long trip it is nice to be able to have two easier days to catch up to do some laundry and have time to visit the internet. These two days are placed after our Tumbes-Tarapoto program and prior to the Tarapoto-Trujillo program. Two easy days birding the vicinity of Tarapoto featuring Dotted Tanager, Purplish Euphonia, Ashy-headed Greenlet, Chestnut-throated Spinetail and Planalto Hermit.
