The Aquamarina moved upriver after lunch on Tuesday, January 17, 2012, and relocated to a point about thirty minutes above the city of Reuqena. We didn't go out birding until late in the afternoon because of heavy rain. Once out, we explored Fosec Creek and ended the day with a long boat ride along a river island to look for Red-bellied Macaws. I took a closeup shot of a Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture, Cathartes burrovianus, to show its black plumage and yellow facial features. The throat, neck, and sides of the head are featherless. The skin here is yellow with a reddish forehead and nape and a gray-blue crown. A carrion feeder, the Lesser Yellow-headed locates carcasses by sight and smell. Temperatures were in the mid-80's with overcast skies, high humidity, and intermittent light rain.
