Peru January 2009

PERU 15th – 31st January 2009 – Lima, Puerto Maldonado and Explorers Inn
Peru 2009 Photo Gallery

The ‘reason’ for this trip was for a friends wedding in Puerto Maldonado – and never one to pass up a chance to go to the superb lodge of Explorers Inn I was very oblidged to go!!

Cleverly Vikki had timed her wedding to coincide with the breeding season of the Agami Herons – which she is studying at Explorers Inn.

Logistics:-
I flew out from Newcastle via Amsterdam on KLM, with a total return cost of about £750. I could have found a return flight for about £100 less but that would have involved lengthy stop overs in America. Flights from Lima to Puerto Maldonado were arranged internally by Vikki and cost about $150 return.

One night was spent in Lima (before the internal flight the next morning) and I stayed at The Olimpus Hostel in Miraflores for $25 for the night. The Hostel is able to arrange a taxi pick up. I also stayed here for one night before my return international flight.
Four nights were spent in Puerto Maldonado – due to the wedding and meeting up with old friends. I stayed in the Imperio Hotel in Puerto, I just turned up (plenty of rooms usually available in Puerto) and got a twin room to myself for about $10 per night.
Ten nights were spent at Explorers Inn – which I’d arranged prior to the trip with the owner.

Literature Used:-
Birds of Peru Tom Schulenberg et al – superb book especially after using the other Birds of Peru book on three previous trips.
Birds of Bolivia v2.0 Sjoerd Meyer – CD-ROM – especially once v2.0 was downloaded which enabled the conversion of calls into MP3.
Xeno Canto – website dedicated to South American bird calls – with the ability to download as MP3.

Miraflores, Lima – 15th January.
Didn’t have too much time in Miraflores but a quick wander down to Larco Mar overlooking the coast produced Peruvian Pelican and Boobies, Belcher’s, Grey-headed and Kelp Gulls, and also the colony of Inca Terns that breed on the pier of the Rosa Nautica Restuarant.
Bananaquit and the sooty Lima form of Vermilion Flycatcher were also seen on the streets of Miraflores.

Puerto Maldonado – 16th-20th January.
Although not the best place in the world for birdwatching I still managed to get out most mornings and/or afternoons. These trips were to the area around the airport which does contain some nice species.
Undulated Tinamous were heard here and a couple of groups of Speckled Chachalacas were seen. When there was no one around the airport there were upto three Collared Plovers running around the car park. Flycatchers are common here especially Tropical Kingbird and Grey-capped Flycatchers, along with Yellow-browed Sparrows and Saffron Finches. Barred Antshrikes were seen on a couple of occasions.
Just outside the airport entrance and around the next bend are two areas of ‘reedy’ scrub where two pairs of Chestnut-bellied Seedeaters and a pair of Greyish Saltators were seen – Black-billed Thrush and Ruddy Ground-dove are very common around here. One Alder Flycatcher and a single Eastern Kingbird were also seen along the road to the airport.
I didn’t get chance to visit Chorillos which is an artificial lake used by locals as a swimming pool, where in the past I’ve seen Small-billed Tinamou and Spot-breasted Woodpecker.

Explorers Inn 20th-30th January.

With Vikki Thompson and Holly Denton.

The trip up and down the Tambopata River is an experience in itself with sightings of Pied Lapwings, Drab Water-tyrants, plenty of flyover raptors and parrots, also two Capybara were seen as well as a Spectacled Caiman. While I was there a very lucky group of tourists saw a female Jaguar on the river bank when travelling up to Explorers. During the dry season flocks of roosting Sand-coloured Nighthawks and more waders can be seen on this journey.

This was my fourth visit to this superb and underwatched lodge – including a six month stint as a Resident Naturalist there in 2005/06.
Most days birdwatching involved walking the trails both in the mornings and the afternoon, with only two trips out that lasted all day.
Most middays were spent around the Lodge Clearing which still produced some brilliant species especially the hummingbirds coming to the flowering bushes in front of the Comedor – these included Festive Coquette, White-chinned Sapphire and Fork-tailed Woodnymph. A pair of breeding Emerald Toucanets could be watched from the comfort of the cabins’ verandas. One afternoon an immature Ornate Hawk-Eagle flew over, with an adult seen by Holly the previous day.

Most late afternoons/early evenings I tried to finish off at Laguna Chica Pier (about 800 metres from the Lodge), this is a dried out Ox-bow lake that seasonally floods. This is the most regular place to see Black-capped Donacobius, Little Cuckoo and Crimson Masked Tanager. It is also a good vantage point to view over flying Swifts, Swallows, Raptors, Parrots and Toucans. One Plum-throated Cotinga was seen sat at the top of a tree on the 26th. It is also a great place for nocturnal species with Tawny-bellied Screech-owl, Amazonian Pygmy-owl and Ocellated Poorwill seen or heard on most visits. On previous visits I’ve seen Short-tailed Nightjar here. Wood-rail, Wood-quail and Tinamous are heard here at dusk, and Laguna Chica is the most reliable place to hear Bartletts Tinamou at Explorers Inn (two being seen just above on Ant Trail on the 26th). At least two Rufous-sided Crakes had taken up residence in the large reedbed, this species responded well to tape but was still very difficult to see.
The trail back from Laguna Chica was the only place I saw Ochre-bellied Flycatcher and is a generally good (short) trail for forest species.

La Torre Trail is very different to most of the other trails around Explorers as its the only one that crosses a seasonal floodplain, and was completely flooded for the first few days of my visit. Due to the differing habitat this is the best place for species such as Grey-cheeked Nunlet, Blue-crowned Motmot, Pygmy Antwren and Pale-legged Hornero. There is a Band-tailed Manakin Lek along this trail. This was also the only place I heard White-throated Jacamar. The start of this Trail held a Ruddy-tailed Flycatcher nest and Ringed Antpipit have been seen along here in the past. In previous years, Purus Jacamar has been seen along this trail.

Ant Trail was also a popular trail and produced some great birds including small flocks containing Antwrens, Antbirds, Tanagers and Woodcreepers. As this trail didn’t flood it was also a good place to see Tinamous, both Undulated and Barlett’s were seen on this trail
and I have seen White-throated here in the past. The latter part of the trail was also good for mixed flocks as it is very close to Laguna Chica, this being the only place I saw Golden-collared Toucanet and Johannes’ Tody-Tyrant. Ant Trail also held the closest Screaming Piha lek to the Lodge Clearing at only about 500 metres.

I didn’t do Tapir and Main Trails the justice they deserve as they were quite waterlogged and very muddy in places but still produced some great birding when I did venture down them. One of the highlights of the trip was seeing a Brazilian Tinamou along Tapir Trail on the
28th and also finding a possible Red-headed Manakin lek on the same day. Screaming Piha and Dwarf-tyrant Manakins are heard on the latter stages of both of these trails but I didn’t spend anytime searching for them. These trails are also good for Tanagers, Antwrens, Antbirds, Foliage-gleaners and Woodcreepers. Two Red-throated Caracara were seen very well on Main Trail on the 28th. Rufous-capped Antthrush were regularly seen at about 650 metres on Main Trail in the past but this area was flooded on this visit and so wasn’t seen. Vikki was lucky enough to see a Banded Antbird along Main Trail on her return from Cocococha Lake on the 25th. Also surprised there was no sight or sound of any Pavonine Quetzals along the latter parts of Main and Tapir Trails as I’ve seen them around here on quite a few occasions.

The Collpita (small parrot clay-lick) was only visited the once and produced good numbers of Blue-headed and Mealy Parrots, Dusky-headed Parakeets and Chestnut-fronted Macaws. Other visiting parrots can include Yellow-crowned and Orange-cheeked Parrots, White-eyed Parakeet and Red-and-green Macaws. A Cinereous Tinamou was flushed from near the hide and flew down to the base of the clay-lick.

Katicocha Lake was only visited once on the 22nd and was relatively quiet (but there was a larger group of us) however it did produce the only Long-billed Woodcreeper of the trip. Katicocha Trail did have a nice group of Common Squirrel Monkeys on the 23rd and the adjacent Tangle Trail did produce the Mammalian highlight of the trip when two Night Monkeys were seen at their day roost in broad daylight.

Sadly Cocococha Lake was also only visited once on the 25th, but was without a doubt the best day of the trip. Sungrebe, Rufescent Tiger-heron, Muscovy Duck and the family of four Giant Otters were seen from the hide before we went out on a one of the Lodge’s canoes.
Two Point-tailed Palmcreepers and a Band-tailed Antbird were seen in the Palm Swamp on the right end of the lake, with an Azure Gallinule seen in the reeds just before the Palms. Surprisingly no Wattled Jacanas were seen as they seem to be here most wet seasons. A large Black Caiman was seen at the entrance to the Palm Swamp. Groups of Hoatzins were seen spread out in the lakeside trees.
We then entered a private part of the Lake which holds a Heronry of about 200 Agami Herons. These beautiful and secretive species were without a doubt the highlight of the entire trip (even though I visited them the past two wet seasons). The Agamis seem to coincide their arrival at the Lake with the wet season (possibly from late December – early March) – but with the wet season being late the first ones had only started arriving in the second week of January and the numbers had grown by my visit on the 25th. Within the Agamis were also at least five Boat-billed Herons. Near to the Heronry an Adult Ornate Hawk-Eagle was seen at the top of a tree, and then the family of Otters swam towards our canoe – giving excellent views.

NB. As mentioned the Agami Heron Colony is on a private part of the Lake but Peruvian Safari’s (the owners of Explorers Inn) might consider allowing small numbers of birdwatchers to visit an area of the lake where it will be possible to view the colony without causing any disturbance to the breeding Herons. Peruvian Safaris will need to gain permission from the government agency that deals with natural resources (INRENA).
If you are interested in viewing the colony then please contact Peruvian Safaris or Vikki Thompson directly.
Occasionally juvenile (last years brood) and adults can be seen in the swamps along the trail to the lake, and occasionally in the areas of lake in which guests are allowed to enter with the canoe.

Pantanos de Villa, Lima – 31st January.
With Alan Lee
I have visited this wetland reserve on a number of occasions, especially as every other trip that visits here sees Peruvian Thick-knee (my luck at this site continued and just gives me another reason to visit Peru once again!!!). Alan and I hired a taxi driver for about $25 for
the morning for this visit. This is a great site for coastal species with lots of Gulls (mostly Franklins) on the beach with the occasional Tern, American Oystercatcher and Peruvian Pelicans and Boobies offshore. The lakes near the coast and near to the visitors centre were very good for freshwater species like Plumbeous Rail, Little Blue Heron, Egrets and Least Bittern. Puna Ibis (common) and Yellow-crowned Night-heron (six on our visit) are shown as out of range in the Birds of Peru, but just shows the expansion that is going in with these species. Raptors were represented with Ospreys, Vultures, Peregrine, American Kestrel and Harris’ Hawks. Both Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs were present with the Black-necked Stilts and one Wilsons Phalarope. One Paint-billed Crake was seen in flight very briefly.
