Interesting Birds & Families.

The Antpittas 

In general, antpittas are shy and retiring and as a result of this, can be quite hard to see. More commonly you will hear, as their call from the dense forest understory. Side trails offer the patient observer a chance to glimpse these seldom-seen species. The forest also is home to a gorgeous variety of hummingbirds. These spectacular birds can be found feeding on roadside flowering trees and shrubs.

The Cock of the Rock

Cock of the Rock (Rupicola Peruviana) is another one of the most spectacular and well-known birds in Peru.  It inhibits the lower montane forest below 2,000 m altitude. This large orange bird is often seen feeding on fruit trees. But it’s most impressive when seen at an LEK.

Displaying Site

Here the males gather at the traditional LEK sites in the early morning to display. This is where the action happens. They squeal loudly and dance, bending their heads forward and raising their wings. The duller females visit the Leks to select a male, who after mating, plays no further part in the nesting or feeding of the young.

Hummingbirds

Furthermore, Peru supports an impressive 127 species (39 % of all the hummingbirds) of which Manu National Park is their home. Hummingbirds occur in all the habitats of the region, from the high montane forest to the flooded forest. Even being spotted in the towns and agricultural areas. Consequently most of them you can see in the gardens of these selected lodges specific to this tour.

Tanagers

The tanagers are one the most colorful and distinctive groups of birds in the world. Only in the New World tropics with the highest diversity of species occurring in the forest of the southern Andes. Even more, Manu Park holds an extraordinary number of them. A colorful procession of these fruit-eating birds scores through the sky. Of which you can see in mixed flocks moving through the forest canopy.

How to Prepare?

Finally, you’ll want to make sure you have the right gear for birding. A good pair of binoculars is essential, and a camera can help you capture memories (or evidence!) of your sightings.

Download a couple of apps such as  Merlin (download the Peru bird pack) and  Ebird (quite useful for uploading your bird records, all lodges provide a WIFI connection )

Don’t forget to pack plenty of sunscreen and insect repellent, as well as comfortable walking shoes and clothes that can protect you from the elements. With a little planning and preparation, your trip to see Peru’s amazing birds will be a success!

To ensure a comfortable and memorable experience, we have compiled a comprehensive packing list of essential items that will assist you during your tour. From protection against the elements to capturing those extraordinary moments, these items will help you make the most of your adventure in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. 1. Lightweight and breathable clothing: Pack comfortable, lightweight clothing made of breathable fabrics. Opt for moisture-wicking tops, long-sleeved shirts, and convertible pants to protect yourself from both the humidity and insects. Don't forget to include a quality rain jacket for any unexpected downpours. 2. Sturdy waterproof boots: A sturdy pair of waterproof boots is essential for navigating the muddy trails and crossing small rivers. Make sure they are comfortable and provide enough ankle support to prevent injuries during hikes and treks. 3. Insect repellent and mosquito net: The Amazon rainforest is notorious for its diverse insect population. Protect yourself from mosquito-borne illnesses by packing a strong insect repellent containing DEET. Additionally, a lightweight mosquito net will provide an extra layer of protection while you sleep. 4. Sun protection: : The Amazon's tropical climate means you'll be exposed to strong sunlight. Pack a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and a high SPF sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. 5.

This will protect your camera, extra clothing, snacks, and other essentials from the rainforest's unpredictable weather. 7.

Portable water filter or purification tablets: Staying hydrated is crucial in the jungle, but tap water may not be safe to consume. Ensure a safe water supply by carrying a portable water filter or purification tablets. 9. Headlamp or flashlight: The dense jungle can get quite dark, making a headlamp or flashlight essential for nocturnal hikes and general navigation in low-light areas. 10. Field: guidebook and notebook: Enhance your knowledge of the local flora and fauna with a field guidebook specific to the Manu Jungle. Additionally, carrying a notebook allows you to jot down observations, identification details, and memorable experiences. 11.

Carry a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout your expedition. 12. Personal hygiene essentials: Bring travel-sized toiletries, biodegradable soap, wet wipes, and hand sanitizer to maintain personal hygiene standards while in the jungle. 13. Cash and important documents: While most lodges in the Manu Jungle accept card payments, it's always wise to carry some cash for small purchases or tips. Keep your important documents, such as your passport and travel insurance, in a secure waterproof bag. Remember to pack light and choose items that are versatile, durable, and suitable for the jungle environment. By being well-prepared, you can fully immerse yourself in the natural wonders of the Manu Jungle in Peru and create memories that will last a lifetime.

    I was going along for the ride on a birding trip with my daughter. I was a little nervous as I have never been outside of the United States and this was my first experience. As soon as Herbert picked us up for our hotel and him and my daughter started sharing stories about bird banders they both knew I felt at ease from that point forward. To say I was impressed with Herbert and his knowledge of birds is an understatement. I was amazed at how he would just hear a bird as we were driving down the mountain and he would pull over and find exactly where it was and pointed it out to my daughter. I was not very good with the binoculars and Charlie was great at pinpointing the birds with the scope so I could see the birds as well. Most of the lodges were so nice and the people and food was amazing. The only lodge I had a hard time at was the last one we stayed at which was way more rustic that I could handle. Overall, I was so amazed at the sites and the knowledge and kindness from our guides. Highly recommend!!!!

    Hebert and Charlie were wonderful guides. They were extremely knowledgeable about the birds in the cloud forest, thesubtopics, and the Lowland rainforest. Experiencing their knowledge was impressing. I reached 910 species worldwide working with them. They are very attentive and kind, as well as easy to talk to. The food was delicious, though some lodges were better than others (Guadalupe and Cock of the rock)

    I did a custom birding tour with Herbert as my guide and it was incredible. He was so knowledgeable and knew all of the hotspots! The service, organization and communication in setting up and planning the trip was also seamless and I would highly recommend for all of your birding needs when in Peru!

    I only wish we booked a longer birdwatching tour! We went on the 6-day birding tour along the Manu road with Jesus as our guide. He is really nice and very knowledgeable about the birds we encountered. We also had the best food we ate in Peru, thanks to Louisa. (We missed them once our tour was over and went back to Cusco.) The accommodations were clean and comfortable, the boat rides were very pleasant, I couldn't have asked for more!

    My wife and I hired Wild Watch Peru for our 2 and one half week Peru tour in August. The first part of our trip was Cusco and the Sacred Valley where the emphasis was to see and learn about the well-known Inca cultural history. We also took advantage of birding and photography opportunities along the way. Luis, the owner of WWP, met us in Cusco and introduced us to Jose, our guide for the Sacred Valley. Jose was very knowledgeable not only about Incan history but how current thinking evolved from ancient philosophies. To our delight, Jose was also knowledgeable about the area birds. We returned to Cusco and Luis guided us over the Andes and along the descent on the eastern side along the Manu highway through the cloud forest, foothills, and lowland rainforest. We stayed at Cock of the Rock Lodge and Guadalupe Ecological Reserve. We caught a boat at Atalya and toured down the Madre de Dios River, a tributary of the Amazon. We stopped at the Amazonia Lodge. Luis and Jose have deep and extensive knowledge of the birds in the areas where they guided us. While traveling down the Andes to the rainforest Luis treated us to fantastic birding and photographic opportunities and challenged us to make the extra effort to see some rare endemic species. Luis grew up in this area and could find birds you would never find on your own.
