Peru is a beautiful country full of amazing scenery and wildlife. Many species that call Peru home cannot be found anywhere else in the world. On this tour we will concentrate on finding as many of these endemics that occur in the northern portion of Peru as we can.

Our tour will start off with a day along the coast which abounds in pelagic and coastal species. A boat ride around Pucusana Island should provide us with great views of Humboldt Penguins, Inca Terns, the endemic Surf Cinclodes, and many others. A visit to Los Pantanos de Villa, a coastal marsh, should result in great looks at the gorgeous Many-colored Rush-Tyrant among many others.

After our time on the coast we will fly to northern Peru and spend the rest of the time birding locations between Cajamarca and Tarapoto. The birding in this region of the Andes is fantastic and the number of endemics is incredible. Most of our time will be spent at the Abra-Patricia Owlet Lodge. A few of the major highlights could include Marvelous Spatuletail, Royal Sunangel, Yellow-scarfed Tanager, Long-whiskered Owlet, and many others. After spending a week in this paradise, it will be hard to imagine going home!
