Featured birding site
Mirante do Gavião Lodge is the new hotspot for birdwatching on the Negro River. The lodge offers several itineraries that cover the main habitats where endemic, rare or typical birds of the region can be found, such as terra firme forest, igapó forest, white-sand forest and riverine islands. You will be located on the banks of a river where great naturalists passed, such as Alfred Russel Wallace and Henry Walter Bates.
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.
