Featured birding site
San Cipriano is a small village and a large reserve located near the Cali–Buenaventura road in the lowlands of the Choco at around 200 m. It is a magical place with beautiful lowland rainforest, crystal clear rivers and streams and a well-maintained system of trails. The regional reserve was set up to ensure the drinking water supply for the city of Buenaventura. San Cipriano is one of the most accessible sites to look for some of the most sought-after species of the Choco bioregion. More than 400 bird species have been recorded, top species include Sapayoa, Baudo Guan, Five-colored Barbet and Black-tipped Cotinga among many others.
Taxonomic update 2021 complete
We are happy to announce that the eBird/Clements taxonomic update 2021 is now fully implemented on Orniverse. This means that in all reports and site descriptions (list of top species), recent splits and lumps have been executed and name changes have been implemented on the entire platform. Nevertheless, Orniverse knows most older names and synonyms, so if you are searching for a species in one of the search boxes you will almost certainly find the one you are looking for. The upload of eBird checklists to create your reports should now work flawlessly again. Let us know if you experience any problems. We have also updated the list of endemic species for each country (search for a country on Orniverse to see full list of endemics). Indonesia has gained 12 endemics, followed by Peru with +8 endemics.
