Day 1. On our way to Paracas, we shall stop at some strategic places. Puerto Viejo, for example, holds many wetland birds. Most notable of these are Great Grebe, Many-colored Rush-Tyrant and Plumbeous Rail. Nearby there is a very reliable stake-out for Peruvian Thick-knee. The area is also good for Drab, Chestnut-throated, and Parrot-billed Seedeaters and Collared Warbling-Finch.
Later we will search for Slender-billed Finch in Prosopis-shrubbery close to Pisco and hopefully get good views of Short-tailed Field-Tyrant and Coastal Miner. Last part of the day, we shall visit the Paracas Peninsula and search for the localized PeruvianTern, Blackish Oystercatcher, and Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes, as well as the Southern Fur Seal colony. At dusk, we shall look for Tschudi's Nightjar.
Overnight in basic hotel with private bath and hot water in Paracas.
Day 2. At 5 AM, we board the speed boat for the pelagic adventure, specifically targeting Peruvian Diving-Petrel, Ringed and Markham´s Storm-Petrel, Waved Albatros, and many more. We are back in port before 11 AM and will start our journey back to Lima with some selected stops en route for birds like Rufescent (Bran-colored) Flycatcher.
Before going to the airport, we shall also pass the wetland of Pantanos de Villa, and If time permits, we shall stop to bird here to pick up additional species. If need be, we also have an additional site for Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes.
