PERU Lomas de Lachay Birding Day Trip

Coastal Miner

The Coastal Miner is one of many endemics we’ll seek on this extension.

This one-day trip is a pre-tour add-on for our Amazon Riverboat Cruise.

Why don’t we include it in the Amazon itinerary and price?

Not everyone will be able to or want to join the day trip. Joining will depend upon your flight schedule and will require an early arrival.

A couple hours north of Lima lies the foothills full of endemics. A green oasis in the dry western slope, we will explore the misty region in search of Cactus Canastero, Thick-billed Miner, Raimondi’s Yellow-finch. Some of the endemics we’ll seek are Oasis Hummingbird, Least Seedsnipe, Coastal Miner, Collared Warbling-finch and more!

 Band-tailed Sierra Finch

Band-tailed Sierra Finches will be found in the foothills during the extension.
