    French Guiana

    Also just to comment on this again... there is good shorebirding around Cayenne for sure. I spent a morning birding with Hugo and we went to a few random spots but I didn't pay a lot of attention. I assume eBird would point you at the productive spots. Of the few we visited, Vieux Port de...

    French Guiana

    I mean, to be clear, I don't completely ignore the seasons. But even beyond the time I spent contiguously from Colombia - Peru (nearly 2 years) I tend to plan most trips with a less aggressive schedule to allow for weather delays / hard to find birds / desire to hang out somewhere longer / etc...

    French Guiana

    Re: Pantanal I’ve not been and I would have a glance before going for sure. For EC/PE I have spent about 15 months total in the two countries, mostly continuously, and as far as I can remember had no dips that were attributable to season.

    French Guiana

    I honestly don’t know for certain. You could reach out to Hugo or it should overlap with seasons for Suriname / Guyane.

    Pretty shit really. The food outside of posh places in Cayenne was decidedly more mediocre random tropical destination and less straight out of Paris :)

    French Guiana

    I don’t know how expensive Suriname is, but I get the impression that it’s broadly comparable. FR Guiana could be done really inexpensively if you were 2-3 people sharing a car and were camping and using carbets. On Amazonian Wing-banded Antbird it seems that Tresor is a really reliable site...

    French Guiana

    Bonjour ;) I just spent 12 days in Fr Guiana and really enjoyed a lot. It’s particularly well setup for independent birding with zero hassles other than the fact that there few flight options to get there. once there there is forest everywhere that is all freely accessible and easy access to...
