Salaverry Cruise-ship special - Peruvian Plantcutter and Rufous Flycatcher


This day trip will make the most of birding wise of your stop at the port of Salaverry south of Trujillo. The key species to look for that you will not find in Guayaquil or Lima are Peruvian Plantcutter, Rufous Flycatcher, and an undescribed (s)sp of Neclaced Spinetail (without neclace!).

No Departures for this Tour

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

We will travel south from Salaverry for about half an hour to the village of Viru. Here both Rufous Flycatcher and Peruvian Plantcutter are usually easily seen, as well as Tumbes Tyrannulet and Tawny-crowned Pygmy-Tyrant. We will also look out for Baird's Flycather.
Further south near Chao a recently discovered and still yet undescribed form of Neclaced Spinetail. Since this form lacks the breast-band of the normal Neclaced Spinetail and also has a different song, it seems likely that it could well qualify for species status once it is described. Other birds possible here are the smashing Tumbes Tyrant, Dark-billed and Gray-capped Cuckoo and Long-tailed Mockingbird.
If you have a full day at port we should also have time to visit the Sinsicap valley. Some rare and often hard to find birds will be sought for here such as Russet-bellied Spinetail and Piura Chat-Tyrant.
Easier to find are birds like Bay-crowned Brush-Finch, Collared Antshrike, Short-tailed Field-Tyrant, Scrub Blackbird, White-edged Oriole, Three-banded Warbler, Peruvian Pygmy-Owl, Bronze-tailed Comet and many more.



Price: US$ 261 (Minimum 5 people).

Includes transport, guide and field lunch. The price is the same regardless of the number of site visited, since the guide and most likely also the vehicle will be coming from either Lima (550km South) or Chiclayo (230 Km North) to meet up with the boat.
