Musichi - Birdwatching Manaure - Colombia

A spectacular sight is watching a flock of flamingos wading through shallow waters, bending their serpentine necks to sieve food through their bills. A perfect place to observe these majestic, rose-colored birds is at Musichi, 14 kilometers from Manaure. Here the sea forms a lagoon which is a rendezvous point for them, even outside the rainy season. There is also a beach where you can relax, soaking up the rays of this strong sun and dipping your neck into the fine water.
