    • The mountain guan is an obligate primary-forest bird that has been extirpated from the forest within the last 10 to 20 years.
    • One of the habituated birds I remember best was a piping guan - a chicken-sized bird normally found only in the highest treetops - that chose to nest only two yards from a building under construction.
    • Furthermore, fruits in the forest canopy support a disproportionately high amount of bird biomass, because in general frugivores tend to be very large (e.g. guans, toucans, parrots, pigeons).
    • Those who prefer altitude can climb the lodge's seven-story, 115-foot canopy tower and stop at each level to observe tanagers, jacamars, guans, and oropendulas in action.
