Another great birding spot that begins right by the entrance to the Canopy Tower! The trail is an old graded dirt road that passes through a mature forest for about four miles. The road follows a small creek, Rio Chico Masambi. In most places the forest is clear of undergrowth, which makes it especially suited for observing shy birds of the forest interior, such as tinamous and leaftossers. Golden-crowned Spadebills are regular around the creek, and White-breasted Wood-Wrens are easy to find. When visiting Plantation Road you also have a good chance to find an army ant swarm and many of the birds that feed opportunistically as they follow the swarm, including Spotted, Bicolored and Ocellated antbirds, Gray-headed Tanagers, and Plain-brown, Northern Barred and (if you’re lucky) Ruddy Woodcreepers. And if you’re really lucky you may even find a Hook-billed Kite. You can spend the whole day birding here and still not reach the end of the trail. This tour is exclusive for clients staying in Canopy Tower.
