Birding Adventure Itinerary


Birding Adventure Itinerary May 2018

With over 600 species, the Tamshiyacu Tahuayo Conservation Reserve has a higher count of bird species of any site in lowland Amazon forest. It is an outstanding experience for birders and nature lovers. In May 2018 we will devote a special week just for birding.

In 2017, we had two people list 262 species of birds on the Global Big Day for birding. This finished in second place for Peru, just a few bird species behind a team of 8 birders that covered the Manu Sanctuary, including both cloud forest and lowland forest sections. For the 2018 Big Day we are determined to finish in first place, with well over 300 species.
If you are an avid birder we invite you to join our team, consisting of 4 renowned local birders who will serve as team leaders. Receive a certificate (suitable for framing) of your contribution to what we hope will be the record number of birds listed in Peru will be mailed subsequent to the trip.
