Pucusana, Pantanos de Villa and Cañete valley
One of our Lima favorites. You may not have time to visit all the localities. It all depends on what pace you want.
We start in Pantanos de Villa looking for Great Grebe, Andean Duck, Black Skimmer, Many-colored Rush-Tyrant and many more..
In Pucusana we usually see Humboldt Penguin, Red-legged Cormorant, Inca Tern, Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes, Blackish Oystercatcher, Guanay Cormorant and Peruvian Pelican. It is possible to make a short boat trip for some additional chance of photography.
Puerto Viejo is a good place for Peruvian Thickknee, but it is also a good place to get good views of smaller birds such as Yellowish Pipit, Grassland Yellow-Finch, Drab, Chestnut-throated and Parrot-billed Seedeaters, Coastal Miner, Short-tailed Field-Tyrant and Collared Warbling-Finch.
If time permits, we will further explore Cañete valley for Slender-billed Finch and the rufescens race of Bran-colored Flycatcher which is possibly a good species. This adds another 2 hours of driving time why most groups opt not to do this. Only if there is full consensus in the group will this be added.
