A birdwatcher’s paradise: an overview of the bird species found at Sani Lodge
Sani Lodge is home to an impressive variety of winged animals. From the majestic Harpy Eagle, one of the largest and most powerful eagles in the world, to the tiny and delicate hummingbird. Keep your eyes open for the stunning Blue-and-Yellow Macaw, the brilliantly colored Scarlet Macaw, and the comical-looking Hoatzin, also known as the stinkbird. Something striking about these birds is the strong unpleasant smell they produce. This smell comes from their digestive system.
Hoatzines use bacterial fermentation in the crop and thus break down the plant material they consume. This makes them have this unpleasant smell that has allowed them to survive millions of years by driving away other animals. Because of all the time they have survived, many consider them a “living fossil.”
In addition to the iconic species that are often the focus of birdwatchers’ attention, Sani Lodge is also home to a range of lesser known but equally fascinating birds. Discover the Black-tailed Trogon, the Long-billed Woodcreeper, and the Blue-crowned Motmot, among others.
With expert guides and an abundance of avian treasures to discover, Sani Lodge is the perfect destination for travelers looking to experience the natural wonders of the Amazon rainforest firsthand. Check out some fun facts about the Ecuadorian Amazon here!

One of the highlights of Sani Lodge is its wetlands and waterways. These areas attract many bird species and support the local ecosystem. Take a canoe ride down the Napo River to spot the colorful and elegant Amazon Kingfisher or the striking Sungrebe.
