Apa Apa reserve

Apa-Apa Ecological Reserve, part of the Portugal families Apa-Apa Hotel, located just north of the town of Chulumani, is one of the best "accessible" sites in Bolivia for middle-montane Yungas species. Although access is a bit difficult, this is a premier site that offers a host of interesting species. This is the only site in Bolivia where the Scimitar-winged Piha has been commonly seen. Other key species for this site include Hooded Tinamou, Rufous-faced Antpitta, Short-tailed Antthrush, Scarlet-breasted Fruiteater, Chestnut-crested Cotinga (scan the tops of the forest in open areas), Straw-backed Tanager, Versicolored Barbet, Yungas Manakin, and Slaty Finch. Joseph Tobias has reported Oilbirds drinking from a small pond on the summit. "Arriving from the Chulumani side, a small half-hidden path runs off to the right at the very summit of the road. This path passes an obvious pond after 40 m or so. The Oilbirds come to drink or bathe at the pool from just after dark." This suggests that there is an Oilbird cave nearby which is probably active from September to March.
