19 July - 3 August 1997

by Roger Boyd


491 bird species, 17 Peruvian endemics; 15 species of mammals


Our group consisted of 8 people.  Accommodations, logistics and guides were arranged by Manu Expeditions based in Cuzco, Peru (contact Barry Walker at "").  Our costs per individual amounted to $2640 land cost, $712 AeroPeru (Miami to Lima and Cuzco) plus the cost of 3 meals which were left up to the participant and flying to Miami.  Our guide was EUSTACE BARNES.  We cannot say enough about Eustace; his patience, his bird identification talents, his good spirits and sense of humor.  We did not have to buy gas but I noticed it was about $9/U.S. gallon.  No one experienced altitude sickness, however, 6 of us experienced intestinal problems and 1 other developed cold-like symptoms.


July 19

Flew into Lima and stayed overnight in Miraflores at Hostel Castellana.

July 20

Did have the opportunity to see a few things in the neighborhood of Miraflores before breakfast and going to the airport.  Departed Lima at 915am arrived Cuzco at 1010am.  Went to Pension Alemana to get settled.  Had lunch in town square area.  Traveled to Huacarpay Lakes area and birded until dusk.  The 915am flight seemed awfully late during the planning stages but since we didn't get to the hotel in Lima until 1 am AND we did a fair amount of walking this afternoon at 11,000 ft.  at Huacarpay, it was fortunate we didn't leave at 0600!

July 21

Flew by twin engine plane to Boca Manu (1 hr.) Moved gear to boat and started upstream on Madre de Dios.  After about 10 miles we branched onto Rio Manu and traveled another 60 miles or so upstream and set up camp near the Cocha Salvadore trail.  This is a "permanent" camp that has been established by Manu Expeditions.  It is located within the buffer zone but not Manu NP proper.  Numerous white caiman and the much larger black caiman as well as capybara were seen along the sand bars.  Various stages of breeding was evident in Black Skimmer, Large-billed and Yellow-billed Terns and Sand-colored Nighthawks.  Left Boca Manu 0915, arrived in camp at 1730hr.  It was dark when we got the tents and dining fly the calls of tinamous.

July 22

Before breakfast we walked a short loop trail near camp.  After breakfast we walked the Cocha Salvadore trail across the river.  Numerous monkeys.  Identified were Dusky Titi, Red Howler, BrownCapuchin, White-fronted Capuchin, Common Squirrel, &Black Spider

July 23

We walked another short trail near camp, adding Com.  Wooly Monkey and had an early lunch, departing down river before noon.  Stopped for 1 hr.  at Cocha Otorongo for excellent photo opportunity for Hoatzins and other things.  Arrived back at Boca Manu airstrip right at dusk.  Set up tents and searched for potoos, without success...very foggy.

July 24

Spent about 4 hr around airstrip and secondary growth for additional species.  Left down river for Manu Wildlife Center at 0930 hr.  Arrived at 1130, settled in and had lunch.  Brief siesta and then walked Lookout Trail late afternoon.

July 25

Down stream at 0530 to arrive at boat blind at the Macaw Lick by 0600.  Upon arrival there were already 1000 Blue-headed Parrots, and a few Orange-cheeked, Yellow-crowned and Mealy Parrots on the river bank eating the clay.  It is believed to be antacids for the fruits they eat.  By 8 most parrots were gone and the macaws started to come in but they didn't descend to the river bank until 9.  In total about 200 Red-and-Green and 2 Scarlet.  The Blue- and-yellow apparently go to a different location.  This experience was unbelievable!  We also visited the Cocha Camungo trail on way back to lodge.  This is seasonally flooded secondary growth, mostly cecropia sp.  Afternoon on Toucan Loop trail.  We had the option of going to a tapir lick but few birds and tapirs were very late, arr.  11pm to 2 am.

July 26

Early trip on Fig Loop trail and then we were hoisted up onto a canopy platform, 110 ft.  up a very large kapok tree.  Unfortunately, it was overcast and very little foraging flock activity compared to another group the day before.  After lunch several of us hard-core birders went to bamboo habitat across the river and the rest went to Cocha Blanca, less walking and birds easier to see.  In the bamboo we did find 12 new species including Manu Antbird, Red- billed Scythebill, Bamboo Antshrike, Rufous-breasted Piculet, Peruvian Recurvebill and the BEST: Scarlet-hooded Barbet!  A singing male in full view for over 15 minutes.

July 27

Departed early for Boca Manu airstrip.  Weather and mechanical problems prevented our plane from picking us up.  Finally, 4 tense hours later the Peruvian Air Force arrived in a bigger twin engine plane and flew our group back to Cusco.  Did some shopping and got some well-needed rest in Cuzco.

July 28

Early departure to catch 6 am train to Machu Picchu.  Didn't arrive to ruins until 11:30.  Normally a 3 hr.  trip.  We did a 3 hr.  tour of the ruins.  It is well worth the time spent.  We then stayed at Hostel del Orchideas.  The accommodations were nice but it was a LONG walk thru the town of Aguas Calientes dragging our luggage behind us.  We stayed at the luxurious and costly Hotel Pueblo last year.

July 29

Up early to catch bus to train station and then walk down the tracks to find Cock-of- the- Rock.  This was a fantastic morning of birding.  After lunch several of us went back down the RR.  At 1600 hr we boarded the train and traveled to Ollantaytambo where we loaded onto our tour bus and went to Hostel Hammer on outskirts of Urubamba.  All of the meals here were excellent.

July 30

Up at 0515 and departed for Abra Malaga.  Arrived close to pass by 0630.  Had breakfast and then walked up to the ridge (~14,000 ft.).  On the other side was a remnant Polylepis woods.  It is under heavy pressure from woodcutters from above and below.  We did find Giant Conebill, White-browed Tit-Spinetail, Ash-breasted and Tufted Tit-Tyrant, Puna Tapaculo, Stripe-headed Antpitta and a number of others.  Eustace heard and saw a Royal Cinclodes but we were unable to relocate it.  We stopped in several arid scrubby habitats on way down but did not find many species.  It was very windy and in the low 50's.  We saw several White-tufted Sunbeams and Tyrian Metaltails but very little else was seen or heard.

July 31

Today we got up at 0330 and left at 0400 to reach the pass and hopefully the cloud forest on the far side by day break.  We arrived at the cloud forest by 0630.  The weather was still fairly cold but we did find 26 new species including Red-crested Cotinga, Scarlet-bellied Mt.-Tanager, Rufous Antpitta (heard), Diadedem Tapaculo (heard), Marcapata Spinetail, 3- striped and Parodi's Hemispingus, Puna Thistletail, Brown-backed, Rufous-breasted and Crowned Chat-Tyrants.  We again visited arid scrubby areas on return but found few birds again.  Apparently El Nino has had a negative impact on these habitats.  There was much greater activity in this habitat last year.  We returned to Hostel Hammer to pick up 2 people who did not go at 4 am and then we traveled on to Pension Alemana in Cuzco.

August 1

Caught 1035 am flight to Lima.  We would have been better off catching an earlier flight but had been unable to book it.  Out of Lima airport by 1230.  Spent time trying to find lunch and drugs for some ill members of the group.  During the trip, all but one of us was ill on some part of the trip.  Diarrhea, stomach cramps, some with nausea, some with violent bouts of each.  We stopped at a fresh water marsh at Pantanos de Villa on the south side of the city.  Best was Great Grebe with chicks.  Continued on down the coast at 1630hr and arrived at Hotel Mirador in Paracas at 2000hr

August 2

We went to the docks and boarded a boat and departed for Isla Ballestas at 0730.  Not much in the way of pelagic species were seen (Sooty Shearwater and Wilson's Storm-Petrel) but thousands of Guanay Cormorants and Peruvian Boobies were seen.  We also saw 4 Humbolt Penguins.  Next we went along the mainland and found Red-legged Cormorants, Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes, American and Blackish Oystercatcher, S.  American and Peruvian Terns, numerous shorebirds and finally 147 Chilean Flamingos.  Back at Mirador we had lunch and then headed out on a terrible road to find Coastal Miner and Slender-billed Finch among Prosopis scrub in the desert.  Found both.  Also stopped for short walk along Rio Mala about 30 miles S.  of Lima.

August 3

Stayed at Hostel Senorial in Miraflores.  Returned to states, ready for the next trip.
