Welcome to the Rainforest - lots of my photos and sounds of the rainforest.

 

The following videos to help you experience the rainforest were also found on Youtube:

A colony of oropendulas:

 

The oropendula has a very funny call acompanied by a nose-dive on the branch!

 

A video documenting/advertising a trip through part of the Amazon on a nicely updated riverboat. This trip is offered by International Expeditions.
