WHERE TO GO BIRDING IN PERU

Back To Map >> 

 Birding Tumbes and surroundings including Cerros de Amotape and El Angolo (Tumbes and Piura).

 

Tumbes National forest in the very northwest part of the country close to the Ecuadorian border has extensive tracts of lowland tumbesian dry forest and harbours a range of tumbesian endemics. It is difficult to get to the site and you need a car of your own. Camping is the only option as there are no hotels close to the site. Several good birds lives like Rufous-headed Chachalaca, Gray-cheeked parakeet, Gray-backed Hawk, Henna-hooded Foliage-gleener, Blackish-headed Spinetail, Slaty Becard, Pacific Royal Flycatcher and Ocraceous Attila.

Closer to Tumbes town is the Manglares de Tumbes which is the southernmost mangrove along the pacific coast. You can hire a boat and bird the mangroves for birds like Rufous-necked Wood-rail, Yellow-crowned Night-heron, Bare-throated Tiger-heron and Mangrove Warbler.

Included in this birding area are also the very similar areas south of Tumbes National Forest (Zona Reservada de Tumbes) - Cerros de Amotape and Coto de Caza El Angolo. This whole area has recently been integrated into one conservation unit - Biosphere of North-East - and soon the mangroves will be included in this unit as well.

Few birders have birded Amotape and Angolo, but information is welcome - and can be uploaded into the Peru-birding Database.
