Vermilion Tanager - © Laura L Fellows and Exotic Birding ToursNorthern Peru is an increasingly popular birding destination, and for good reason. This region is full of endemics not present farther south or in Ecuador. Certainly two prime target birds are the poorly known and only recently observable Long-whiskered Owlet, best seen at Fundo Alto Nieva, and the extraordinary Marvelous Spatuletail, perhaps the world's most astonishing hummingbird. Our tour to the north begins with a day visit to Villa Marshes and Pucusana south of Lima before flying northeast to Chiclayo. From there the tour follows the classical route with visits to Chaparri in the semi-arid Tumbes region of northwest Peru, Pomac Reserve on the western slope of the Andes, the Jaen area for Marañon endemics, world-famous Owlet Lodge at Abra Patricia, Fundo Alto Nieva, Waqanki Reserve near Moyobamba, and Morro de Calzada ("the Tunnel") north of Tarapoto in the eastern Andes foothills of northern Peru. Participants should be willing to accept some basic accommodations including shared bathroom facilities at Chaparri (39 endemics including the endangered White-winged Guan) and quite basic accommodations at Waqanki Lodge (amazing hummingbirds).

 

TOUR NOTES
