Rio Japurá, Brazil

Admire the amazing riverview vista from the ornithology team’s second field site where the Rio Acanui meets the Rio Japurá—you’ll witness just how wide these Amazonian rivers can be! This is the sixth 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.
