Most people know that Cusco is one of the best destinations in the world and they want to come here to visit Machu Picchu, but not many people know or can imagine that the Cusco region is also one of the best destinations in the world for birdwatching. According to the Ebird platform, there are more than 1000 species that can be seen in this Region. And it is that the Cusco region has altitudes from 530 to 3680 making this region one of the destinations with the greatest diversity of species.
Likewise, its almost unique geographical characteristics make Cusco an ideal destination for observing endemic, near-endemic, specialist and interesting species.
Only 10 kilometers from the Plaza de Armas (Main Square) there is a place known as Balcon del Diablo where 5 endemic birds are present. Similarly, in the Sacred Valley, there are various species of hummingbirds and easily 10 of these can be observed in a single Hummingbird Garden or even in the same Inca citadel of Machu Picchu in its small patches of bamboo are the Inca Wren and the Cuzco Brushfinch. And at the foot of Machu Picchu near the Site Museum, with a bit of luck, you can see the colourful Cock-of-the-Rocks among many other fabulous species.
