Mangaloma Reserve - Primary Forest near Choco Region

The Mangaloma Reserve is owned and protected by two nature-caring people who are very interested in the health and well beeing of all living things.  This private reserve continues to surprise birders with some very exotic-choco endemic birds like the Banded Ground Cuckoo, the Long-wattled Umbrelabird, and the lastest find of the Roufus-crowned Atnpitta.  Although I have not had the luck to see these birds in my trips to this reserve I will share some other wonderful birds below.

     Indigo-crowned Quail Dove:

     The Plumbeus Kite

     The Maked Tityra

     The Green Kingfisher

The bird list for this reserve seems endless.
