Paracas two days with Pelagic


Since Pelagics in Lima have been suspended, we have created a new tour that includes the Paracas pelagic, which replaces the one in Lima. It also makes it possible to see many other birds, including difficult birds such as Peruvian Tern and the newly split full species Peruvian Pipit and Tschudi's Nightjar, as well as the soon to split Rufescent Flycatcher.

UPDATE: 2021

From around October 2021, we shall be operating Pelagics from just south of Nazca. The program can be done in just two days, but becomes much more enjoyable if three days are allowed. Don't count on flying out from Lima in the evening of Day 2 if you want to do it in only two days. 
The three days cover completely the pelagic and coastal birds in this program, as well as the Nazca specialties and the possibility to fly over the Nazca lines. 

  December 4 - 2021

If the departure dates don't fit you, please suggest another date.


Day 1. On our way to Paracas, we shall stop at some strategic places. Puerto Viejo, for example, holds many wetland birds. Most notable of these are Great Grebe, Many-colored Rush-Tyrant and Plumbeous Rail. Nearby there is a very reliable stake-out for Peruvian Thick-knee. The area is also good for Drab, Chestnut-throated, and Parrot-billed Seedeaters and Collared Warbling-Finch.
Later we will search for Slender-billed Finch in Prosopis-shrubbery close to Pisco and hopefully get good views of Short-tailed Field-Tyrant and Coastal Miner. Last part of the day, we shall visit the Paracas Peninsula and search for the localized PeruvianTern, Blackish Oystercatcher, and Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes, as well as the Southern Fur Seal colony. At dusk, we shall look for Tschudi's Nightjar.
Overnight in basic hotel with private bath and hot water in Paracas. 

Day 2. At 5 AM, we board the speed boat for the pelagic adventure, specifically targeting Peruvian Diving-Petrel, Ringed and Markham´s Storm-Petrel, Waved Albatros, and many more. We are back in port before 11 AM and will start our journey back to Lima with some selected stops en route for birds like Rufescent (Bran-colored) Flycatcher.
Before going to the airport, we shall also pass the wetland of Pantanos de Villa, and If time permits, we shall stop to bird here to pick up additional species. If need be, we also have an additional site for Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes.
