Peruvian Peregrinations

Red-capped cardinal

Peru is a land of many habitats, from the dry Tumbas in the northwest and the high Andes mountains running down the center of the country, to the Amazonian forests and rivers in the east. During two trips, we had a chance to examine the avian inhabitants of each of these regions.   We’ll discuss evolution, speciation, and the impact of geological upheavals while focusing on hummingbirds, and then look at some other exotic bird families, from Tanagers and Ovenbirds to Hoatzins.  Finally we’ll finish with a brief look at amazing Machu Picchu.
