The Mashpi area has very wet rainforest at lower elevation than Tandayapa. Several rare Chocó endemics can be found here more easily than anywhere else in the region, including Black Solitaire, Orange-breasted Fruiteater, Indigo Flowerpiercer, Pacific Tuftedcheek, Uniform Treehunter, Moss-backed Tanager, Glistening-green Tanager, and Chocó Vireo (very rare).

Orange-breasted Fruiteater is frequently seen at Mashpi.
