Keen on seeing Banded Ground-Cuckoo? Want to see 15 species of Antpittas? We shall run again our successful 3 week Antpitta twitch tour to Northern Peru and Ecuador with preliminary start on Christmas Day Dec 25.  It is possible to join for a shorter period if you like. The trip is also very good for birders enjoying hummingbirds, since many of the lodges we visit have hummingbird feeders.  Read the blogpost on Birdingblogs about the Banded Ground-Cuckoo discovery in Ecaudor. (Nov 10, 2012).

Carl Billingham is doing 7 weeks of birding with us in Peru in between January and March. The Northern part likely have two more people signing up. The first part includes Tumbes forest and a pelagic from Los Organos on Jan 19. That should be exciting.  Galapagos Petrel virtually guaranteed. Dec 16, 2011.

Ber van Perlo is coming to Peru in April to do a 8 day trip to Carpish and Junin. The trip is open for more participants. Either do only Carpish or combine Carpish with Satipo road on a 17 day trip.
