Rio Silanche Bird Sanctuary

At 300 to 350 MASL (984- 1148 ft) is a low altitude private cloud forest and bird sanctuary located 7 km off the main highway after Pedro Vicente Maldonado on kilometer 127.  When driving on the main highway turn right at the blue house with a bus stop and go inland toward a rock mine.  After a while you will have to take a left and then the next two rights.  When you get to a long climb, then look on the left for the entrance.  It has 80 hectare (200 acres) of primary and secondary recovering cloud forest.  There is one main trail and a smaller loop trail which begin with at a 15 meter (50 feet) canopy observation tower.  The trails are very easy with a wide open path cleared regularly for your safety and convenience.  Be aware of snakes; we found a 2 meter long bushmaster crossing the main trail.  This placed is owned and protected by the Mindo Cloud Forest Foundation in an effort to preserve the threaten forest in this internationally defined Important Bird Area (IBA). 

This is a must visit place for the great variety of Chocó endemics that can be seen here such as the Purple-chested Hummingbird, the Chocó Trogon, the Double-banded Graytail, the Griscom’s Antwren, the Stub-tailed Antbird, the Black-tipped Cotinga, the Slate-throated Gnatcatcher, the Scarlet-breasted Dacnis, the Scarlet-and-white Tanager, and the Blue-whiskered Tanager.
