Expedition Unknown: Hunt for Extraterrestrials - Cueva de los Tayos - Netflix

Cueva de los Tayos (Spanish, “Cave of the Oilbirds”) is a natural cave located on the eastern slopes of the Andes mountains in the Morona-Santiago province of Ecuador. It is sometimes called Cueva de los Tayos de Coangos (the Río Coangos is nearby), presumably to distinguish it from other oilbird-containing caves with similar names.
