WHERE TO GO BIRDING IN PERU

Back To Map >> 

 Birding Tingo María and surroundings (Huánuco).

 

Tingo Maria along the Central Highway was formerly a stronghold for Sendero Luminoso but is now a rather nice town in the foothills. The main reason for birders to go here is the easy access to a big Oilbird-cave just 15 mins north of town. Apart from the Oilbirds, White-eyed Parakeets fly in and out of the cave all the time. The trail to and past the cave offers some nice birding and things like Many-spotted Hummingbird, Golden-tailed Sapphire, Blue-headed Macaw, Hoatzin and Hullaga Tanagers can be seen around here.

Recently a new very nice place to stay is Villa Jennifer, where also birding can be done on the grounds, especially good for night birding with Band-bellied, Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl and Tropical Screech-Owl.  

15 kms east of Tingo Maria towards Pucallpa is Santa Rosa bridge which offers some nice birding with Hoatzins and other more widespread lowland species.

On the road back towards Huanuco one should look out for Fasciated Tiger-Heron on the river and colonies of Red-rumped Casique.
