Having a full time job has slowed my rate of travel considerably but I still manage to get away occasionally. Back in April I spent two weeks in Peru, not on a hardcore birding trip but still managing to see a few nice things.
We started off in the North, at Tarapoto for a few days then at the very nice Pumarinri Lodge on the banks of the Huallaga River. The highlight here was a morning boat trip on the river, giving superb close views of the incomparable Hoatzin (one of the best birds on the planet!) and some other good stuff:
|Drab Water Tyrant and Southern Rough-winged Swallow|
|San Martin Titi Monkey|
|Three Striped Poison Dart Frog|
