Several of Majestic Feathers followers have
contacted Kathleen and asked if it was "our Percy" that guided
Noah Stryker on February 28, 2015 when he was birding in the
Manu Reserve. The answer is yes! Percy Avendano Medina who is
the principal bird guide and naturalist for our birding
trips to Peru and Noah extensively birded the area around Villa
Carmen within the Manu Reserve. Percy's brother Jose also a
guide and Noah had birded their way from Cusco to meet up with
Percy. Percy is a manager at Villa Carmen, a relatively new
bio station that is a project of the Amazon Conservation
Association. Percy said that it was a pleasure to meet Noah and
to assist him in his quest to break the world record for the
most bird species seen in one year. Noah's blog, Birding without
