Rio Japurá, Brazil

Get a glimpse of village life along Brazil’s remote rivers as the ornithology team cruises by a typical Amazonian settlement on their way to their first study site. This is the second installment in a series of video journals by Dr. Jason Weckstein documenting the 2007 joint expedition between The Field Museum and Brazil’s Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi to survey birds along the Rio Japurá and its tributaries.
