Satipo Road Bird Watching Tour in Central Peru
This 5-day birdwatching tour in Central Peru on the Satipo road awards you with a large number of endemic birds and opportunities for bird photography.
The birding on Satipo road is considered equal to the more famous Manu Road. The road cuts through pristine habitat from 3600m to around 1000m. We record many endemic birds in Peru, some of which are recently discovered and some which are not still not named!
This tour provides chances to view Chestnut Antpitta, Bay Antpitta, Tchudi’s Tapaculo, Junin Tapaculo, Jalca Tapaculos, Black-spectacled Brush-Finch, Marcapata Spinetail, Unstreaked Tit-Spinetail, Cerulean-capped Manakin, Masked Fruiteater, Creamy-bellied Antwren, Eye-ringed Thistletail, Mantaro Wren, Mantaro Thornbird, Fire-throated Metaltail and Yellow-scarfed Tanager and around 30 species of hummingbirds.
Hummingbird feeders are being set up in the area, as well as fruit feeders for tanagers and habituating antpittas. For this reason, it is very likely that Satipo Road will become a bird photography hotspot in Central Peru.
