Peru part 2

From Pumarinri we returned to Tarapoto, and found a car to take us to Moyobamba. Despite having pretty much zero espanol, I managed to persuade the driver to stop at the Quiscurummi Bridge to take a look at the colony of Oilbirds that live in the ravine below. We had fantastic views of these weird owl/nightjar things in the scope, but photography was rather tricky.
At Moyobamba we got a room in a guesthouse near the thermal springs for a couple of nights, and spent most of our time either in the hot springs or at the Waqanki reserve watching their fantastic hummingbird feeders.
