It's a bit tricky finding this small, private sanctuary. A short walk from town, you turn right on a steep rocky road just before the bridge (there is a small outdoor cafe there) and walk a few minutes before reaching it on your right side....More

I first learned about this bird, the Cock of the Rock, in 1999 and it has been at the top of my bird list ever since so I was quite excited at the prospect of seeing it. The reserve is on the edge of town...More

This is a lovely spot down in the canyon near town. The Gallito de Roca are very amusing and there are many other species of birds in the sanctuary.

Really nice experience. Priceless spot to see this beatiful bird. You can see the female bird just in the morning.

I was fortunate to get great shots of these rare and beautiful birds with good camera equipment wheeb it opened around 4.30 on, just before it started to rain. Nothing else to do or see there. The entrance was 10.000 pesos.

I went with my tour guide at the crack of dawn to watch and photograph these birds, Cock-of-the-rock. They were amazing to watch. The owner of the reserve was very friendly. It was a very worthy experience.

The place is definitely worth a visit. It is a little confusing as far as how to find it so you have to be there at the time the locals will tell you to be, but the birds do not disappoint!
