ABOUT THE BIRDING
Abra Gavilan is a mountain pass in northern Peru that separates the Rio Mara&tildn;on drainage from the Pacific slope drainage. The habitat is mainly montane scrub with some forest below the pass. The main birding area is a gully visible just east of the pass where the endemic Unicolored Tapaculo can be found. While that is the main target species, a second target species, Piura Hemispingus, can also occasionally be found there as well.
LOCATION OF SITE
Abra Gavilan is located about 35km south of Cajamarca in northern Peru.
