Pantanos de Villa is a large wetland in the Chorrillos district in the southern part of Lima. Here many species of waterbirds can be photographed including White-cheeked Pintail, Cinnamon Teal, Andean Coot, Great Grebe, American Oystercatcher, Killdeer, Many-colored Rush-Tyrant, Wren-like Rushbird and many more. We also often see Black Skimmers here in large numbers. In the Southern hemisphere summer there are thousands of Franklin’s Gulls present.
Pucusana is a scenic port some 60k south of Lima. This is a good place to photograph Inca Tern and Red-legged Cormorant. Other possibilities here include Blackish Oystercatcher and Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes. Close to Pucusana there is a good site for Peruvian Thickknee.
Lima parks are good for species like Amazilia Hummingbird, Croaking Ground-Dove, West Peruvian Dove, Vermilion Flycatcher, Saffron Finch, Harris Hawk and others.
Adding a second day of bird photography in Lima can include localities such as Ventanilla and the Callao port, for more shots of Inca Tern and waterbirds.
