BIRD WATCHING offers birders a program that will bring them closer to many of the marine, coastal, Andean and jungle species that make Peru the perfect place for bird watching.

The late Theodore Parker III, famous American field ornithologist once said “Peru offers bird fanatics, more than any other country in the world can offer. Being here I felt like a child visiting a huge store full of new and fascinating toys. ” He was right. Peru Birding has an extraordinary ornithological richness. New species are continually discovered every year in the forests and jungles of the Amazon, as well as in the mountains and valleys of the Andes. At the last count, there are 1,710 recorded species (about 20% of the world total), of which more than 300 are endemic. In addition, Peru Bird holds the record for the largest number of species in one place (650 in the area surrounding the Explorer’s Inn lodge, located in the Tambopata jungle) and the record for the highest number of species seen in a single day. (361 in the area surrounding the Biological Station of Cocha Cashu, in the Manu).

In 2011, in Canada, in a forest in British Columbia, the Bedford brothers finished watching the movie The Big Year and decided to start a peculiar contest: each one set out to travel the world to see and photograph thousands of species of birds with the sole interest of satisfying their curiosity. The first to reach the 25,000 different birds would be the winner.

The film that inspired them is a comedy by Steve Martin and Jack Black that dealt with a group of birdwatchers competing with a lot of rivalry to win money and recognition. The Brothers who work as forest agents in the Canadian forest, however, decided to do it only out of honor. Lorne traveled to Iceland, Costa Rica and the United States. David went to Australia, New Guinea, Namibia and, in addition, Peru. That is how He arrived only a few days ago to Machu Picchu, motivated by his desire to get close to an infinity of bird species that he has never seen before in his life in the Amazonian Peru.
