Central Highway November 2005 (English version)

In December 2005, I had the pleasure, in company with Gunnar, to guide a British group throughout the "Central Andes" circuit. This trip is directed to the passionate birders, who want to see a large number of bird species. "More birds" is not the "slogan" of Kolibri Expeditions for nothing!! The other characteristic of this circuit is the possibility to spot a great number of "endemic" species (whose total distribution is less than 50.000 km²). And as one crosses a great number of habitats, it is possible to see a great number of species in very little time: from the 7 to November 15, we recorded 358 species of birds including 32 endemic species! It is also possible to add day trips to this principal circuit; those who added an day trip in the coastal desert and an day trip pelagic ended up with 405 species in only 11 days.
