Located in the state of Apure, our site at El Hato Cedral sits on a working cattle ranch and ecotourist lodge near the town of Mantecal. El Hato Cedral features abundant wildlife, including the Orinoco crocodile, anaconda, caiman, giant anteater and puma. There are approximately 340 species of birds, including the White-Winged Swallow (Tachycineta albiventer).

More than 100 nest-boxes were erected in 2008. Our first study team from the Venezuelan and the United States was sent to El Cedral midway in the 2010-2011 season, and a new team is working here in the 2011-2012 season.
