Report from Birding Peru e-group Nov 26, 2005.

Satipo road Nov 24, 2005
We are just finishing the last days of a fantastic Satipo road program
with Naturetrek which will land on well over 400 species seen in the 11
days (including tomorrow?s pelagic) plus some 15 heard only. Just above
Puente Carrizales on the Satipo road 11º29.150´ S, 74º53.463? W we found
about 8 Pardusco (including your birds that were being fed) on Nov 24.
This is about 250km SE range extension. They were foraging with other
birds in elfin forest - ecotone scrub which included melastomes like
Brachyotum, Chusquea, Baccharis, Rubus etc. There are small
remnants of elfin higher up here which could be promising for other
Carpish endemics ? and probably more intact forest beyond this highly
transited valley.
We also saw several flowering Tristerix mistletoes here ? which would be
(should be) an indication of presence of White-cheeked Cotinga
previously recorded nearby by Thomas Valqui.

A bit of a warning on identifying ?Millpo? Tapaculo (Scytalopus sp nov).
In Valquis book it is mentioned for Manzanilla on the Satipo road, but
to me it seems that this habitat is more apt for Tchudi?s Tapaculo
(Scytalopus acutirostris). Indeed, Fabrice Schmitt (co-leader) had a cut
from a working copy of the forthcoming DVD of Birds of Peru (Sjoerd
Mayer) with a two note call that sound more like calls from Tchudi?s
Tapaculo. The best habitat for ?Millpo? Tapaculo is well developed bunch grass with scattered rocks

Other highlights included Taczanowski´s Tinamou near Punto turn-off
(yesterday), the new undescribed Thornbird from Mantaro drainage at a
new site near Acobamba (tape-recorded), the new Thryothorus wren and
Black-spectacled Brush-Finch near Andamarca, ?Millpo? Tapaculo (also
undescribed), Blackish Pewee (Oxapampa road), Black-and-White Hawk Eagle
(San Ramon), Black-and-Chestnut (nesting with a fledged juvenile) and
Solitary Eagle, Umbrellabird, Swallow-tailed Nightjar, Lyre-tailed
nightjar with nestling, Lanceolated Monklet (Oxapampa road), Eye-ringed
Thistletail, etc, etc,
