Pucusana, Pantanos de Villa, Puerto Viejo, Lomas de Asia 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 Thick-knee, but it is also a location 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 Lomas de Asia for Thick-billed Miner and Raimondi's Yellow-Finch and Cañete Valley for Slender-billed Finch and the Rufescent Flycatcher, among other species. This is an optional extension for the group.
