PERU: an ultimate destination for birdwatchers
Since an October of 1982, when Ted Parker and Scott Robinson, two talented ornithologists counted the amazing number of 331 bird species in a single day birding the trail network of the Cocha Cashu Biological Station in Manu National Park, Peru became an instant attraction for the most demanding sector of birders. Later in 2010, the appearance of Birds of Peru, the most complete and authoritative field guide for this country, originated an unprecedented increment of international birders that have Peru in the bucket list. “Peru was always one one of the best birding destinations in South America and the world”, according to David G. Ricalde, our marketing manager, ornithologist and birding guide with many years of experience in the Andes, Amazon and Altiplano of Peru and Bolivia.
