Birdwatching Cusco Peru
Birdwatching Peru–The fabled Peruvian bird-watching. If ever there was a lifetime experience—this is it. So immerse yourself in a Peru that is uniquely yours. Add extra days or adjust locations to see what you want to see, the way you want to see it. Peru is one of the greatest countries on earth for bird lovers. The bird population in Peru is, incredibly, about 10% of the world’s total. With nearly 2,000 species of resident and migrant birds identified throughout Peru, great bird-watching sites abound.
Manu, Paracas, and Machu Picchu are just a few of the many places that draw international birdwatchers to Peru. With more than twice as many species as the whole of North America, Peru is one of the today’s top birding destinations. Peru is one of the three most diverse countries for birds on Earth and stands at the top of the international birder’s agenda. Its varied geography and topography, and its wildernesses of so many different life zones have endowed Peru with the greatest bio-diversity and a large density of birds.
Manu Biosphere Reserve, believed to have the highest concentration of bird life on the planet, is legendary among birders. It boasts more than 1,000 species of birds. Cocks-of-the-rock, quetzals, toucanets, tanagers, and seven species of colorful macaws await patient birders. Some visitors have spotted as many as 500 species in relatively short visits to Manu. The Tambopata National Reserve is also extraordinary for birding and more accessible than Manu. The reserve, about a third the size of Costa Rica, claims more species of birds (around 600) and butterflies (more than 1,200) than any place of similar size. Both Tambopata and Manu are famous for their collpas, or salt licks, where hundreds of macaws, parrots, and other birds appear daily to feed.
