Piura-Chiclayo connection
Leisurely open area birding adding some localities which are not visited extensively on other Kolibri Expeditions itineraries such as Manglares de Vice and Puerto Eten. Perfect to add some less intense birding while traveling between Tumbes-Piura-Chiclayo.
Salaverry Cruise-ship special - Peruvian Plantcutter and Rufous Flycatcher
This day trip will make the most of birding wise of your stop at the port of Salaverry south of Trujillo. The key species to look for that you will not find in Guayaquil or Lima are Peruvian Plantcutter, Rufous Flycatcher, and an undescribed (s)sp of Neclaced Spinetail (without neclace!).
Different cruiships will have different length of stay, so time will limit exactly what will be done this day.
Scarlet-banded Barbet extension
Scarlet-banded Barbet was discovered in 1995 on an isolated peak in the Cordillera Azul in the head waters of Rio Cushabatay and was formally described to science in 2000. For many years the only way to see it was doing a 10 day expedition with a 2-3 grueling hike to reach the peak. Recently a new site has been discovered very near an extremely rough - but nonetheless - road allowing much easier access. This is still a rough trip with camping and extremely bumpy 4WD ride to get to the base, but the rewards are high with a number of other seldom seen birds in the same area.
Self-guided birding in Peru
Rent our vehicle with an experienced birder/driver for two weeks or more and set off on a road trip with wonderful safe birding in Peru for a fraction of the Normal tour price.
