0:00-0:37: Rainbow at Wayqecha
0:38-1:00: Oropendola nest, which is quite rare and strange to see at this elevation (~2900m) and far away from water
1:01-1:10: Throwing ropes over high branches so we could raise a mist net up into the canopy
1:11-1:33: Citrine Warbler (Basileuteris luteoviridis) doing a weird thing with its head
1:34-1:55: A truck driving on Manu road
1:56-2:36: Gray-Breasted Mountain-Toucan (Andigen hypoglauca)
2:37-3:07: Crimson-mantled Woodpecker (Colaptes rivolii)
3:08-4:08: Unknown raptor soaring with prey in its talons and then a view of the valley at wayqecha from Trocha Wayqecha
4:09-4:44: Hooded Tinamou (Nothocercus nigrocapillus) in the old growth forest past the canopy walk
4:45-5:13: Rusty-breasted Antpitta (Grallaricula ferrugineipectus) in the old growth forest
5:14 -5:38: A pair of male Barred Fruiteaters (Pipreola arcuata)
5:39 -6:39: A view from the mountain peak above Trocha Wayqecha. Zooms in on distant snowcapped mountains and a cloud-shrouded Tres Cruces.
6:40-7:00: Feeding a Masked Flowerpiercer (Diglossa cyanea) before releasing it
7:01-7:27: A female Amethyst-throated Hummingbird (Heliangelus amethysticollis) sleeping and "snoring" during metabolic experiments
7:28 -8:09: A Rufous-bellied Bush-Tyrant (Myiotheretes fuscorufus) perches. You can hear its mate calling in the background. They had a nest nearby, which might be the first nest of this species ever found, with one nestling.
