After 6 weeks of birding in Peru - 64 endemics


We have now had 42 birding days in Peru, almost 7 weeks in total including travel days and a whole day off.

833 birds seen, another 49 heard, giving a total recorded as 882 bird species.

64 endemic species seen out of possible 103, plus another 4 undescribed yet to be recognised endemic species.

277 new birds for Birdgirl, 266 for Chris and 270 for myself, with a total number of birds from our target list of 285.

We still have two more weeks to go, including a pelagic sea boat trip, so am hopeful that we will all see more than 300 new birds each.  That would be fantastic.
