ABOUT THE BIRDING

Huembo Center is an ecological easement just outside the town of Pomacochas in northern Peru. The forests are in a transition zone between humid montane forest and drier forest of the Utcubamba River Valley below. The primary attraction is the hummingbird feeders that provide a reliable site to see Marvelous Spatuletail. The feeders also attract the rare Little Woodstar. Local rangers have recently conditioned Undulated Antpitta to come out onto trails. It's also possible to see Peruvian Pigeon, Speckle-chested Piculet, and Red-ruffed Fruitcrow there. Night birding can be very good. Possibilities include Cinnamon Screech-Owl, White-throated Screech-Owl, Rufous-banded Owl, and Andean Potoo.
