Long-whiskered Owlet
The Long-whiskered Owl stunned scientists when it was discovered by a team from Louisiana State University in 1976. This tiny owl is unlike any other known species, with extremely long facial whiskers, stubby wings, and a short tail. Until recently, this species was known only from specimens obtained from mist nets, there is still very little information on its ecology.
Marvelous Spatuletail
This magnificent hummingbird is endangered and found only in a small area of Peru. Its body is quite small in size but this hummingbird has an extraordinarily long tail and males have rackets on the outer most tail feathers. Marvellous Spatuletails inhabit humid forest borders, second growth, and mountain scrub.
Royal Sunangel
Described in the late 1970s from northern Peru, and only much more recently discovered in south eastern most Ecuador, the Royal Sunangel is a strikingly plumaged hummingbird. Males are entirely deep blue, with a long, deeply forked tail. The species inhabits subtropical elfin forest edge and shrubbery, at elevations between 1,450 m and 2,200 m, and it is partially insectivorous, like many hummingbirds.
Great Inca-finch
All five species of “Inca Finches” are endemic to Peru. The Great Inca-finch is a large, colorful finch-like tanager of western Peru. Restricted to the western Andean slopes between 1500 and 2100 meters in elevation, this species is often found in dry, hot slopes and canyons near succulent vegetation.
Hornby’s Storm-petrel
Ringed, or Hornby’s Storm-Petrel is endemic to the Humboldt Current. Its breeding colonies have not been discovered yet, juveniles have been found well inland in the lights of mines and other inhabited areas of the Peruvian and Chilean desert, it currently is thought that this seabird may nest well inland. This species is commonly seen on our Pelagic birding tour.
Peruvian Plantcutter
The Peruvian Plantcutter is endemic to Peru, where it is restricted to the northern coast from Piura south to northern Lima. It is the rarest of the plantcutters, having a highly restricted range and is considered to be a threatened species. The Peruvian Plantcutter prefers open, dry forest dominated by Prosopis and other trees, with a dense shrubby understory, it will also occupy desert scrub and riparian thickets.
Inca Tern
The Inca is the most colorful member of its family. Its body is charcoal grey, with dark black primaries and black cap, bright red bill and legs. The most distinctive feature of this species are its prominent white moustaches which, starting at the base of the bill, are quite long and curl down around the cheek.
Rufous-crested Coquette
This striking species of hummingbirds is one of the most attractive birds seen during our Northern Peru Tour. It is usually seen feeding at the Waqanki reserve.
Waved Albatross
While most species are either concentrated to the south of the Tropic of Capricorn or the north of the Tropic of Cancer, Waved Albatross occurs almost exclusively off the northwest coast of South America, and is thus the only species to live exclusively within tropical latitudes. The species breeds primarily on the Galapagos Islands, but nonbreeding birds range at sea off the coasts of Ecuador and Peru.
Humboldt Penguin
The Humboldt Penguin is a medium-sized penguin that breeds on the coast of Peru and Chile and feeds offshore in the Humboldt Current. Humboldt Penguins feed mostly on schooling fish and squid. This species is threatened by various activities, including commercial fishing, hunting, and the live animal trade.

Ecologística Perú are morally committed to the environment and the communities we work with, minimising in every possible way, the impact we can make on the environment and the communities.

More than a company policy, we apply an environmental conscience philosophy when, because of the requirements of our clients, we must introduce foreign products to diverse destinations. ‘’All that is not from the place, leaves the place or is transformed and used in it.’’

Ecologística Perú believes nothing can equal the innate knowledge and experience of the local population. Local knowledge is a key component in understanding everything that goes on around them, for this reason, we involve local people directly in each experience we undertake.

    I have travelled three times with Ecologística Perú and I am thoroughly impressed by their excellent organization and knowledgeable guides. They know what a wildlife photographer is looking for and work hard to help get the right shot. Two images that I have taken on EP trips have won national awards.

    We had a group of 10 and he arranged a beautiful tour for us. Cusco, the lakes near there, Cock of the Rock Lodge and then to the La Madre del Rio to a resort and then to a research station for research on Macaws! We had great guides who really knew the birds and other animals. Just a great trip.
