Birding Tour Peru: The Endemic-rich North and Cordillera Blanca 2017



This expansive ‘Birding Tour Peru’ expedition of the magnificent north of Peru will lead us through all of the most rewarding birding hotspots of this astounding area brimming with avian riches. A major highlight will be the long-whiskered Owlet Lodge in the Abra Patricia Mountains, where we will hopefully encounter one of the most enigmatic birds of Peru, the Long-whiskered Owlet, endemic to northern Peru and only described to science somewhat over 30 years ago. A bird list of over 500 species is easily attained.

We also offer a 2-day optional pre-tour extension to the Santa Eulalia Road.

This ‘Birding Tour Peru’ adventure can be combined with our South Peru: Birding the Inca Empire, Mountains and Lowland Rainforests 2017 tour (1 – 16 July 2017) for a Peruvian mega tour.

What our clients say

Recommendation for Eduardo/Raul/Peru staff Birding Peru for the first time in July 2012 with Eduardo, a professional and very knowledgeable local Peru guide, ensured a smooth, safe and hassle-free trip filled with south Peruvian endemics such as Junin Canastero, White-bellied Cinclodes, Great Inca-Finch and Inca Wren. Eduardo, with the assistance of Raul, were quick to spot birds and ensured that all in the group got onto the birds as fast as possible. While birding, Eduardo also enlightened and amused us with his vast knowledge of birds and other fauna of the area. At the end of each day Eduardo assisted the group to complete a list of birds seen and heard for the day. A briefing each evening prepared participants on what to expect the next day. The accommodation was clean and safe, even in off-the-beaten-track areas. I can highly recommend the Birding Ecotours bird guide in Peru.
