Pucusana, Pantanos de Puerto Viejo and Cañete valley
One of our Lima favorites. You may not have time to visit all the localities. It all depends on what pace you want.
In Pucusana we usually see Humboldt Penguin, Red-legged Cormorant, Inca Tern, Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes, Blackish Oystercatcher, Guanay Cormorant and Peruvian Pelican as we are indulging a rich and varied picnic breakfast. Puerto Viejo has a similar assembly of birds as more well known Pantanos de Villa (Great Grebe, Andean Duck, Peruvian Thickknee, but it is also a good place to get good views of smaller birds such as Yellowish Pipit, Grassland Yellow-Finch, Many-colored Rush-Tyrant, Drab, Chestnut-throated and Parrot-billed Seedeaters, Short-tailed Field-Tyrantand Collared Warbling-Finch.
If time permits, we will further explore Cañete valley for Slender-billed Finch and the rufescens race of Bran-colored Flycatcher which is possibly a good species. This adds another 2 hours of driving time and most groups opt not to do this. Only if there is full consensus in the group will this be added.
