A new good news about the Cock-of-the-Rock
04/01/17 01:09 Filed in: Cock-of-the-Rock
A young enthousiastic Saramaccan Bushnegro, named Fred Pansa, the director of Fredecotours, discovered 3 new leks in the area where he is building his lodges. One lek, with 3 active males, is just half an hour walking distance. Another lek has 10 active males.
This lek is 3 km away. In the same area there are also two territoria of the extremely rare Band-tailed Antshrike. We have visited his place, called the Fredberg in November 2016 and saw many interesting species of birds including the already mentioned species and a couple of the rare Dusky-capped Flycatcher. Harpy Eagle has been spotted several times and Fred observed a Crimson Fruitcrow eating a lizard.
My standard 11-day tour will be changed into a 12 day tour. We will stay two nights near the Fredberg and one night less on the Brownsberg. Fred is building comfortable lodges for two persons. He has already a large Hammock-camp, a restaurant and a few lodges. Janauary 2017.
