The third best Global Big Day in the ENTIRE WORLD recently happened here at Villa Carmen in southeastern Peru by the ACCA (Asociación para la Conservación de la Cuenca Amazónica) co-director, Percy Avendaño Medina. 257 bird species found in a single day! Incredible! To give you some perspective, that's over 1/3 of all bird species found in all of North America. This area of the Madre de Dios (Mother of God) has been labeled by some as the epicenter of biodiversity and will be featured in the next issue of National Geographic.
