Guyana has an impressive list of over 800 species of birds and the Iwokrama Forest can boast to being home to about 500 species. With further studies this list is expected to exceed 600 species. Iwokrama has relatively high densities of larger frugivorous birds such as cracids, cotingas and parrots as compared to other forested areas in the Guiana Shield or Amazonia.
The walkway allows observations of the birdlife in the middle and upper canopy and views across the top of the canopy from the highest platforms. If you overnight at the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway Camp or arrive early you can enjoy the dawn chorus, as the forest awakens. The late afternoon is another busy birding period as the day cools and birds journey back to their roosts.
A species list for the walkway is only in preliminary stages but already 134 species have been recorded, but the broader Iwokrama Bird List will give you idea what to expect.
