1 Sit­ting in the foothills of Santa Marta, Los Be­sotes Eco Park was Colom­bia’s first Im­por­tant Bird Area. Glau­cous tan­ager is a tar­get species.

2 The Per­ijá Moun­tains is one of Colom­bia's least ex­plored re­gions. En­demics in­clude the Per­ijá tapac­ulo, de­scribed in 2015, and Per­ijá met­al­tail.

3 Los Fla­men­cos comprises both coastal wet­land and dry for­est. The ver­mil­lion car­di­nal is a colour­ful spot, as are flocks of Amer­i­can flamin­gos.

4 The sandy beaches of Tay­rona Na­tional Park make it pop­u­lar with tourists. The blue-billed curas­sow in­hab­its the forested slopes in­land.

5 The Santa Marta Moun­tains are packed with birds. En­demics in­clude the Santa Marta moun­tain tan­ager and Santa Marta para­keet.
