Puno-Arica (Chile)-Arequipa. Pelagics in the South

Titicaca Grebe, Puna Rhea, Chilean Woodstar and 2 Pelagics!
We will travel from Puno town to Tacna to sample puna specialties such as Puna Rhea, Titicaca Grebe, Golden-spotted Ground-Dove, Puna Canastero, Puna Miner, Puna Yellow-Finch, Ornate Tinamou, Darwin's Nothura and several others. From Tacna it is only a stone-through away to Arica to get the rare and localized Chilean Woodstar. Arica is great for Pelagics so we would not miss out on the opportunity to do one here. On the way back to Peru and Arequipa we will visit the wetland at Mejia, do a short pelagic also from Mollendo (where the continental shelf is very close to shore) and do a trip up to Chiguata where some localized species such as White-throated Earthcreeper and Tamarugo conebill can be found. These five days are best combined as an extension of our exciting Puno departement trip.
