Santiago day trip: Precordillera - many endemics


No Departures for this Tour

If the departure dates don't fit you, please suggest another date.

During this birding day, we will look for the pre-cordilleran species occuring around Santiago. The diversity will be lower than during a day in the Batuco-Lampa marshland, but this trip include more chilean endemics.
We will begin the day in a park close to Santiago, where the main target will be the White-throated Tapaculo. The others endemics we should easily find here are Moustached Turca, Dusky-tailed Tapaculo, Chilean Mockingbird, etc.
The Chilean Tinamou is fairly common, but is not so easy to actually see... and the rare Chilean Hawk also occurs here.
Later, we will drive in another place about one hour from Santiago, where the target will be the Crag Chilia. Black-chested Buzzard-eagle and Andean Condor are regulary seen around here, as is Austral Blackbird, Austral Thrush, Grey-hooded Sierra-finch, etc...
If time and weather permit (impossible between april and october) we will drive at higher elevation to look for some other species as Mountain Caracara, Dark-bellied and Grey-flanked Cinclodes, Cordilleran Canastero, and more.
