With an early start, we shall start birding at the turnoff to Hacienda San Jose. where there is a good area for Drab, Chestnut-throated, and Parrot-billed Seedeaters, Collared Warbling-Finch, Mountain Parakeet, Peruvian Pygmy-Owl and Amazilia Hummingbird.
At Lomas de Asia we will search for Peruvian Thick-knee, Grayish Miner, Thick-billed Miner and Raimondi's Yellow-Finch.
If the group has interest in culture, one may make a stop at the excellent small museum in Ica to learn about the Paracas and Nazca Cultures.
Or if you are "drinkers with a birding problem", you may appreciate a visit to a local Pisco bodega - and sample some.
Birding often becomes more fun afterwards.
