Peru is a magnificent country, and I spent 2 weeks birding the Andes with Field Guides. John Rowlett and Jesse Fagan were fantastic guides for the trip. The first several days were spent based in Miraflores, a subdivision of Lima. We did day trips to Pantanos de Villa, San Pedro, Pucusana, Santa Eulalia and Lomas de Lachay. We then flew to Cusco and visited the Huacarpay Lakes on our way to Yucay. A morning was spent at the magnificent ruins of Machu Picchu, and we used the Inkaterra Resort as our base in the valley. Fruit and hummingbird feeders were delightful to monitor. We did several hikes on the property, and a long hike along the railroad tracks into the Mandor Valley. Back to Yucay as a base to visit Abra Malaga for several days, visiting both the dry west slope of the Andes and the wet east slope. The final day was a hike into polylepis forest at 14,000 feet for specialty species.
