Subject: Shorebird passage at Iquitos
From: "Jacob Socolar jacob.socolar AT gmail.com [Birdingperu]" <Birdingperu@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:54:52 -0400
Hola con todos,

This morning (September 11) I went down to the mudflats in front of
downtown Iquitos to see what shorebirds might be around.  Buff-breasted
Sandpipers were abundant, and I dashed about the mudflat from sub-flock to
sub-flock trying to obtain an accurate count.  This proved impossible, but
eventually the majority of the sub-flocks briefly united as a
"super-flock", permitting an exact lower-bound count of *313 individuals*.
 This is nearly double eBird's previous high count for this species in
Peru, which I made in the same location two years ago.

Though these birds aren't "exotic" to a Norteamericano, truly the shorebird
passage is one of the finest birding spectacles in Loreto!

Cheers,
Jacob Socolar


Other shorebirds present at Iquitos of late:
Today (Malecon mudflats):
11 Upland Sandpipers, 5 Collared Plover, and 3 Pectoral Sandpipers.
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19799876

30 August (Moronacocha):
2 Black-necked Stilts, 1 Solitary Sandpiper, 12 Greater Yellowlegs, and 84
Pectoral Sandpipers.
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19613356

29 August:
A South American Snipe flew over downtown Iquitos at 11:40 PM.

Estimados,
Les alcanzo el nuevo numero del Boletin UNOP, que puede ser descargado de 
Boletin UNOP. 


Este nuevo número nos trae la grata noticia
de que la ciudad de Chachapoyas, en Amazonas, ha sido elegida como la sede para
el próximo congreso peruano de Ornitología. Además, nos trae un excelente
estudio sobre la cortarrama peruana en Pomac, cuyo resultado estima en 500
individuos la población en esta área protegida, convirtiéndola de lejos, en el
mejor lugar para la conservación de la especie. Por otro lado, tenemos una
nueva crónica sobre aberraciones en el plumaje de aves marinas en el Perú y la
descripción de un evento de reproducción de flamencos en Ite, quizá unos de los
pocos que se ha dado en la costa peruana. Tenemos también un registro del
Lique-lique en las lomas de Atiquipa en Arequipa y la descripción de la 
predación 

por parte de un Aguilucho de un zarcillo. Finalmente, publicamos la
confirmación de dos nuevas especies para el Perú: Mimus triurus y Setophaga
palmarum. Espero lo disfruten!


Saludos,
fap

Subject: Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks near Iquitos
From: "Jacob Socolar jacob.socolar AT gmail.com [Birdingperu]" <Birdingperu@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Mon, 1 Sep 2014 19:37:29 -0400
Hi all,
Day before yesterday I had two Black-bellied Whistling Ducks flying over
Moronacocha in Iquitos, and yesterday I had eight.

Last year I had 270 on a beach near the mouth of the Napo, plus a bird
further up the Napo and a couple on the river islands near Iquitos.  I
wonder if this bird was previously overlooked in the Iquitos vicinity and
further down the Amazon, or if it has become substantially commoner in
recent years?

Dear Birdwatchers,
 

 You might have heard about the World Shorebirds Day to be held on 6 September, 
2014 for the first time. One of the key programs of this special day is the 
Global Shorebird Counting, which is a public awareness initiative. I ask all 
Peruvian bird enthusiasts to take part in the counting in any areas where 
shorebirds occur. Don't worry, if there are no huge number of shorebirds in 
your area. We don't ask money to help. We just ask to go out birding, what 
every birdwatcher love to do anyway. 

 

 Please consider supporting this initiative and register your location on our 
website. By registering a location you can be a part of a draw to win a 
fantastic bird book package worth about £150. 

 

 Registration of the location and more details about the Global Shorebird 
Counting Program can be found here: http://goo.gl/jNW1VG 

 

 The map with more than 340 already registered locations can be viewed here: 
http://goo.gl/ICpB7X 

 

 Thanks for your time and please help us to reach our goal of having a thousand 
locations registered by 6th of September 2014. 

 

 Best wishes, Szimi

Introducción al documento “REFERENCIAS BIBLIOGRÁFICAS DE LAS AVES DEL 
PERÚ”, escrito por Manuel A. Plenge 


 
Muchas veces cuándo nos proponemos profundizar en el estudio de una especie en 
particular, nos percatamos de que hay información ya escrita sobre 
ésta.  Sin embargo, en muchas ocasiones debemos invertir un enorme esfuerzo 
en ubicar toda la información disponible sobre tal o cual especie, y esta 
tarea consume tiempo y energía, y a veces, desanima a muchos investigadores o 
interesados, ya que pueden sentir que no encuentran lo que buscan. 


Afortunadamente, ahora, esta tarea se va a simplificar para los estudiosos de 
las especies de aves del Perú, ya que ponemos a disposición del público en 
general, el “magnum opus” de Manuel A. Plenge, compilado durante varias 
décadas de trabajo.  Don Manuel nos está entregando una poderosa 
herramienta que va a potenciar tanto el estudio, investigación así como el

Hi Dan,
Nice report from Huancabamba. When Pete Hosner, Mike Andersen and I tried to 
visit this area, our trip was dominated by vehicle issues and landslides across 
roads. By the way, I heard at the Ornithological Congress in Peru you are 
working on a review paper on the distribution of Xenoglaux. I’ll look forward 
to reading it when it is accepted or whenever you can share it. 

Cheers,
Dan

Dear Tom and all,

I was part of a small group (including Barry Walker and Fernando Angulo) who 
just visited the area last week. It was a bit anti-climactic, but below is my 
report. Hope it has some information of use to you and others hoping to visit 
the area: 

Ever since the 1985 publication by Parker et al. of the avifauna of the 
Huancabamba region of eastern Piura department, Peru, the names “Cerro 
Chinguela” and “Cruz Blanca” have been immortalized in the minds of 
birders and ornithologists who have an interest in Peruvian birds. Visits to 
these sites, and others nearby, have added nearly 30 species of montane birds 
to the Peruvian list, which is no mean feat! So it was, when Barry and Fernando 
suggested that we make a week-long visit to the area, I jumped at the chance! 
Barry had visited Chinguela twice before (and will compare this most recent 
visit with his remembrances and field notes below). I had visited a ridge to 
the south while on an LSU expedition in 1998—areas we called Quebrada Lanchal 
and Quebrada Las Palmas—so I had some experience with the avifauna. Fernando 
had not been in the region before, so it was all new to him. 



COMMENT FROM BARRY
I had visited Cerro Chinguela in February 1987 and March 2001. The former was 
with a sometime South African birder Nigel Matthews escaping the Apartheid he 
hated, now resident MD in Saskatchewan, Canada (he was a friend of Ted Parker 
– they met at Explorer’s Inn Tambopata around the first time I met Ted, 
thus the connection. After Ted’s fatal accident, Nigel flew down to Ecuador 
with a brass plaque and hiked to the crash site and left some kind of 
memorial). It rained constantly. The second time was with an amateur sound 
recordist David Michaels from Arizona. The first trip was done packing in all 
we needed on our backs up the mule trail from Sapalache. The second trip was 
with the help of a mule, but again walking from Sapalache. It rained but I do 
remember some sun on that trip. At that time a very rough road had been 
attempted but it was impossible to transit it at the time we were there. Now 
the road, although sometimes with minor landslides, is good and you can commute 
to birding localities with early starts from Huancabamba a we did in a 4 x4 
Toyota – a sign of the times! There are also basic hostels (and lot of 
drunks!) in Sapalache. Yunque is the basic cane alcohol and very cheap there. 
In 1987 the habitat was much as described in the 1985 publication by Parker et 
al. In 2001 it was a huge shock to see what had happened in the intervening 14 
years. At that time, the forest below Batan was severely fragmented and, beyond 
Machete, had gone altogether apart from a few scraps, but there was intact 
forest above that and the mule trail went through untouched forest. Now in 2014 
there is nothing below Batan and, although there is good forest on the other 
side of the river, it is very difficult to get to without an expedition and 
even that forest is now in the process of being burned. As far as I can see, 
the pass area has not changed at all over the years and at Cruz Blanca the 
forest is intact on the west slope above 1750 meters but severely impacted 
below that. 


We met up in Chiclayo on the evening of the 9th to plan our attack. On the 
10th, we hired a car and driver to take us there, did our grocery shopping, 
planning for several nights of camping, and departed town. A stop in Olmos to 
get a stove and gas canister and some other minor things was our last bit of 
business before we headed east into the mountains, leaving Olmos at about 3:30. 
We arrived in the town of Huancabamba by about 7:00 pm and found a hotel called 
the Panoramiko which was reasonable, clean, and on the right side of town to 
make a quick exit towards Chinguela the next morning. Definitely a hotel worthy 
of future birding visitors. 


Our first day was a “reckie”: we drove over the pass at Chinguela (at about 
3100m), eyeing the habitat to see where the best locations to bird and to camp 
were. We thought we’d go over the mountain, descend to the lower elevations 
(at least to about 1500m) on the northeast (windward, or wet) side, stay there, 
and work our way back up to higher elevations over the coming days. A mule 
trail was used by the LSU expeditions between 1974-1980, as well as by Barry 
and other early visitors, to reach the paramo at the higher elevations of the 
mountain from the nearby town of Sapalache, as well as to cross it to the 
northeast side where the town of El Carmen de La Frontera now resides. Since 
those years, a road has been put in… and as is often the case with roads, 
human colonists followed close behind. The forests pictured in the Parker et 
al. paper are mostly gone. The area near the road, particularly below 1800m 
elevation, has been turned largely into barren pastureland, with only a few 
small tongues of forest remaining in the steepest drainages. Batan is now a 
bridge over a stream with no habitat. Below a locality known as “Machete” 
(a road sign now designates the small group of houses that was once a mule 
resting area, as noted in Parker et al.), it is nearly impossible to find any 
habitat that holds forest birds at all. The views we had were dismal and we 
were rather disillusioned. 



 Add to that the fact that it was drizzling pretty steadily all day, and you 
have an idea of what our mood was. We drove as far as we felt gave us an idea 
of the extent of habitat on the northeast slope, then stopped to have brunch, 
and decide what to do next. Basically, between the rain and the loss of 
habitat, we decided to beat it back to Huancabamba (which is about 1 hour from 
the pass at Chinguela), stopping to check some of the tongues of forest along 
the way. One stop gained us Leptopogon rufipectus and a small tanager flock, 
but otherwise, it was pretty quiet by the early afternoon. We returned to the 
Panoramiko and searched for somewhere to eat, finding a restaurant run by a 
family of evangelists that neither sold alcoholic beverages, nor allowed them 
in their restaurant. Not a problem for me, but it was cause for a little 
muttering by my three companions. 


Day Two found us again headed over the pass to visit the Machete area (about 
1800m), where the last patch of forest was, and where we thought we may still 
find a few things of interest. We arrived there by about 6:30 or so, and there 
was some chorus (and, thankfully, there was almost no rain). As Elmer boiled 
water and fried eggs and bacon for us, we explored the 200m of road that still 
had some remnant woodland, although it looked mostly like second growth. Some 
tyrants including Ochthoeca cinnamomeiventris, Poecilotriccus ruficeps, and a 
small tanager flock were the highlights, but interior forest specialists 
(Hapaloptila castanea, Grallaricula peruviana, etc.) were nowhere to be found. 
The patch was probably too small to still hold such species. We eyed the 
remaining forest across the river longingly, where there was less human 
intrusion and steeper slopes, but even there it seemed that fires and tenacious 
colonists were chewing away at the forest. We worked our way back upslope after 
late morning, stopping at elevations around 2100 and 2500m, encountering 
Cacicus chrysonotus and a remarkably high Piprites chloris (at 2400m or so! 
Possibly the first record for Piura?). But other than hummingbirds, there was 
little bird activity. We stopped at a spot just over onto the SW side of the 
pass, where Barry made a valiant effort to play in some of his target birds 
(Buthraupis wetmorei, for example). I wandered up a track into a small pasture 
surrounded by bamboo and found a tanager flock that responded well to pygmy-owl 
playback. Also, an Ochthoeca frontalis popped up, but didn’t vocalize (which 
was just as well, because I had just run out of recorder memory cards!). Then 
the rain began again, and we gave up and headed back to Huancabamba. Our plan 
to camp was quickly disintegrating, and we decided we’d just use the 
Panoramika as our base of operation. Plus, a restaurant called Mi Lindo Tumbes 
seemed a step up from the previous one – it had beer! 


Day Three, we thought we’d bird the pass area. The sky seemed clear over 
Huancabamba (which is in the rainshadow of Chinguela, but still seemed to 
receive a lot of rain), so we hoped we’d hit it right weather-wise. We 
ascended from the Huancabamba valley, and stopped at a patch of forest just 
before treeline where a dawn song on the side of the road turned out to be 
Hemispingus atropileus (of the southern form, not the northern form, agreeing 
with the LSU specimens collected here and reinforcing the notion that the 
Huancabamba/Maranon drainage was *not* the barrier between the two forms, 
contra Ridgely and Greenfield’s Birds of Ecuador). A Dubusia taeniata caught 
my attention, and I recorded that, but then we headed farther upslope. As we 
did, the clouds billowed over the pass and we were again enveloped in pelting 
mist and rain, sometimes blowing horizontally. After about an hour of this, we 
gave up, and descended the mountain back to the Huancabamba valley, but instead 
of returning to the town of Huancabamba, we decided to head north past the 
little hamlet of Salala and up a road that wound up over the continental divide 
and back towards Ayabaca, on the Pacific slope of Piura. We only got as far as 
the paramo of the pass, finding Nothoprocta curvirostris, Phalcoboenas 
megalopterus, Vanellus resplendens, Lesbia victoriae, Cinclodes albidiventris, 
and Geositta tenuirostris. The rain came and went (mostly, it came), and we 
eventually tired of the damp and cold and withdrew, but not before stopping at 
some treeline elfin forest for Scytalopus (canus) opacus and Asthenes 
(Schizoeaca) griseomurina. Then we headed back to Huancabamba, stopping briefly 
in some dry habitat in the valley (during a break in the rain) to see if we 
could find Incaspiza ortizi. No luck, but a Colaptes atricollis was a nice 
consolation prize. One thing that had become pretty obvious as we passed 
through Huancabamba and Sapalache (the town at the western base of Chinguela) 
was the preponderance of day-long heavy drinking by the locals! Nearly all 
adults we saw were in various stages of drunken stupor (perhaps because of the 
Farther’s Day weekend?), some even passed out on the streets. Quite sad, 
really. Perhaps this explained the stance of that restaurant the first night… 


Day Four dawned clear, but it clouded up as we crested the mountain, and by the 
time we were on the windward side, it was drizzling hard, as always. We spent 
several brave hours determined to see something, and got Fernando his life 
Cyanolyca turcosa, Phegupedius euophrys atriceps, and Cinnycerthia unirufa. It 
was such a dreary day that we gave up by about 11am, and headed back to 
Huancabamba with our tails between our legs… but at least we could enjoy the 
World Cup. 


Day Five, we decided to try our luck on the road that leads south east from 
Huancabamba towards the Chinchipe drainage, where it reaches the town of 
Tamborapa. This road does not get as high as Chinguela, so there is no paramo 
habitat, but there seems to be some remaining forest along it at the 2800m 
elevation range. One other thing we discovered was that there are patches of 
dry habitat south of the village of Sondor that are crawling with Incaspiza 
ortizi! As we climbed up to the forest, we made a stop where there was a small 
flock with Nephalomyias (Myiophobus) lintoni and a few tanagers. Elsewhere, a 
Grallaria nuchalis sang nearby (and I caught a glimpse) and a few tanager 
flocks and Cyanolyca were present. Our forward movement was abruptly ended by a 
landslide blocking the road. At about the same time, the rain began again, so 
we turned around and headed for home. Nearly to Sondor, Fernando was fielding 
calls for Father’s Day, and while in the midst of conversation, he motioned 
for us to stop, and mouthed “Crotophaga major.” Huh? I jumped out, and, 
sure enough, there was a C. major sitting immediately beside the road glaring 
at us with its white eyes! I’d heard that this species, normally of lowland 
Amazonian river edges, can show up in weird places and elevations (such as at 
Aguas Calientes below Machu Picchu), but this certainly is about the weirdest I 
can imagine! Returning to Huancabamba, we ate at a new restaurant near the bus 
station that was a bit better than the Tumbes restaurant (and had beers!). 


Day Six started with drizzle again in Huancabamba. We decided to make one last 
attempt to get up Chinguela to the high elevation paramo, but the soils of the 
region were so saturated with water by now that landslides had blocked the road 
up there too! We conferred for a bit, and decided to try the Salala road one 
more time to see if maybe some treeline birds were present there. Arriving by 
about 9am in the treeline zone, we enjoyed Grallaria quitensis and a few other 
fairly common birds, but nothing really noteworthy nor any of our big targets. 
Plus, again, it was cold, windy, and drizzling. We headed back down to town by 
12:30, checked out of our hotel, grabbed lunch at the new restaurant, and 
headed out for Canchaque (on the Pacific slope of the mountains). On the way 
over Cruz Blanca, we checked sites for places to visit in the morning. One last 
possible target was Aegolius harrisii, which had been reported from around 
1750m on the Canchaque side by Parker et al. Once we arrived there, the habitat 
was again hacked up second-growth trees with pastures. We found lodging at a 
place called Hostal de Aucca, just above Palambla (more a honeymooner's resort, 
it seemed), and as we arranged for the rooms, enjoyed quite a show of 
Petrochelidon ruficollis drinking from the pool as a Buteo albonotatus and a 
Harpyhaliaetus solitarius flew by overhead! At dusk, we returned to the 
elevations for the Aegolius, and started playing recordings. Quite by surprise, 
we heard one respond, but it never came in close. Alas, we had to settle for a 
“heard only.” 


Day Seven saw us returning to Cruz Blanca. First we made one more last attempt 
at the Aegolius, but this time, it didn’t even vocalize. We then headed up to 
the pass (at about 3200m), arriving around dawn. The first birds to greet us 
were Cyanolyca turcosa, Grallaria quitensis, and Pseudocolaptes boissinneautii. 
As we walked back across the pass, we noted that the Scytalopus here was S. 
latrans subcinereus (S. latrans latrans was on Chinguela) and the Grallria 
rufula here was G. r. cajamarcae (it was G. r. rufula at Chinguela). The former 
I expected, but the latter was a bit of a surprise. We crossed to the west side 
of the pass, and above the howling wind heard Picoides fumigatus and Dubusia 
taeniata. A little farther downslope, where the wind wasn’t so bad, we had 
brunch and enjoyed a few hummers and such (Aglaeactis cupripennis and 
Heliangelus viola were both common here, missing on Chinguela). The different 
avifaunas between Cruz Blanca and Chinguela were obvious, but I was expecting 
Cruz Blanca to be considerably drier than Chinguela, and was impressed to see 
how humid it was. The avifauna there was far more like Pagaibamba and Paja 
Blanca (two sites in western Cajamarca I’d visited with Fernando in 2007). It 
remains to be seen if the Glaucidium jardinii on Cruz Blanca is northern G. j. 
jardinii or southern G. j. bolivianum (as it was at Pagaibamba). Despite much 
effort, we failed in finding Myrmeciza griseiceps, and headed back to the hotel 
to collect our things and return to Chiclayo. On the way, we made a stop and 
saw a Vultur gryphus fly by! 


The trip suffered from wet weather and disheartening amounts of habitat 
destruction, but it was educational to revisit the region, and the company was 
fun as always! We just hope that the reserve of Tabaconas-Namballe has 
preserved enough of this rare and important bioregion for Peru’s patrimony… 



Respectfully submitted,
Dan Lane

and Geositta tenuirostris. The rain came and went (mostly, it came), and we

Huancabamba towards the Chinchipe drainage, where it reaches the town of 
Tamborapa. This road does not get as high as Chinguela, so there is no paramo 
habitat, but there seems to be some remaining forest along it at the 2800m 
elevation range. One other thing we discovered was that there are patches of 
dry habitat south of the village of Sondor that are crawling with Incaspiza 
ortizi! As we climbed up to the forest, we made a stop where there was a small 
flock with Nephalomyias (Myiophobus) lintoni and a few tanagers. Elsewhere, a 
Grallaria nuchalis sang nearby (and I caught a glimpse) and a few tanager 
flocks and Cyanolyca were present. Our forward movement was abruptly ended by a 
landslide blocking the road. At about the same time, the rain began again, so 
we turned around and headed for home. Nearly to Sondor, Fernando was fielding 
calls for Father’s Day, and while in the midst of conversation, he motioned 
for us to stop, and mouthed “Crotophaga major.” Huh? I jumped out, and, 
sure enough, there was a C. major sitting immediately beside the road glaring 
at us with its white eyes! I’d heard that this species, normally of lowland 
Amazonian river edges, can show up in weird places and elevations (such as at 
Aguas Calientes below Machu Picchu), but this certainly is about the weirdest I 
can imagine! Returning to Huancabamba, we ate at a new restaurant near the bus 
station that was a bit better than the Tumbes restaurant (and had beers!). 

 

 Day Six started with drizzle again in Huancabamba. We decided to make one last 
attempt to get up Chinguela to the high elevation paramo, but the soils of the 
region were so saturated with water by now that landslides had blocked the road 
up there too! We conferred for a bit, and decided to try the Salala road one 
more time to see if maybe some treeline birds were present there. Arriving by 
about 9am in the treeline zone, we enjoyed Grallaria quitensis and a few other 
fairly common birds, but nothing really noteworthy nor any of our big targets. 
Plus, again, it was cold, windy, and drizzling. We headed back down to town by 
12:30, checked out of our hotel, grabbed lunch at the new restaurant, and 
headed out for Canchaque (on the Pacific slope of the mountains). On the way 
over Cruz Blanca, we checked sites for places to visit in the morning. One last 
possible target was Aegolius harrisii, which had been reported from around 
1750m on the Canchaque side by Parker et al. Once we arrived there, the habitat 
was again hacked up second-growth trees with pastures. We found lodging at a 
place called Hostal de Aucca, just above Palambla (more a honeymooner's resort, 
it seemed), and as we arranged for the rooms, enjoyed quite a show of 
Petrochelidon ruficollis drinking from the pool as a Buteo albonotatus and a 
Harpyhaliaetus solitarius flew by overhead! At dusk, we returned to the 
elevations for the Aegolius, and started playing recordings. Quite by surprise, 
we heard one respond, but it never came in close. Alas, we had to settle for a 
“heard only.” 


 

 Day Seven saw us returning to Cruz Blanca. First we made one more last attempt 
at the Aegolius, but this time, it didn’t even vocalize. We then headed up to 
the pass (at about 3200m), arriving around dawn. The first birds to greet us 
were Cyanolyca turcosa, Grallaria quitensis, and Pseudocolaptes boissinneautii. 
As we walked back across the pass, we noted that the Scytalopus here was S. 
latrans subcinereus (S. latrans latrans was on Chinguela) and the Grallria 
rufula here was G. r. cajamarcae (it was G. r. rufula at Chinguela). The former 
I expected, but the latter was a bit of a surprise. We crossed to the west side 
of the pass, and above the howling wind heard Picoides fumigatus and Dubusia 
taeniata. A little farther downslope, where the wind wasn’t so bad, we had 
brunch and enjoyed a few hummers and such (Aglaeactis cupripennis and 
Heliangelus viola were both common here, missing on Chinguela). The different 
avifaunas between Cruz Blanca and Chinguela were obvious, but I was expecting 
Cruz Blanca to be considerably drier than Chinguela, and was impressed to see 
how humid it was. The avifauna there was far more like Pagaibamba and Paja 
Blanca (two sites in western Cajamarca I’d visited with Fernando in 2007). It 
remains to be seen if the Glaucidium jardinii on Cruz Blanca is northern G. j. 
jardinii or southern G. j. bolivianum (as it was at Pagaibamba). Despite much 
effort, we failed in finding Myrmeciza griseiceps, and headed back to the hotel 
to collect our things and return to Chiclayo. On the way, we made a stop and 
saw a Vultur gryphus fly by! 

  
 The trip suffered from wet weather and disheartening amounts of habitat 
destruction, but it was educational to revisit the region, and the company was 
fun as always! We just hope that the reserve of Tabaconas-Namballe has 
preserved enough of this rare and important bioregion for Peru’s patrimony…

Date: Wed, 7 May 2014 14:05:27 -0400
  Does anyone have a reliable spot for finding the coastal subspecies
(decussatus) of Band-winged Nightjar in Lima or Chiclayo?

   A known roost would be ideal (!), of course, but information on
something as general as an area where they * might * be roosting would be
appreciated. I assume that they are not calling much at this time of year,
but I also would like to know if anyone has a place where nightjars are
singing now.

Subject: Ayacucho & Northern Peru sightings
From: Dan Lebbin <dlebbin AT abcbirds.org>

Estimados todos,

Just returned home from a trip to Peru to attend the Ornithological Congress in 
Ayacucho as well as project oversight for American Bird Conservancy with ECOAN 
at Huembo and Abra Patricia in northern Peru. During the trip I saw 40 species 
of hummingbirds and I think 50 may be possible along the route between Tarapoto 
and Huembo with a little planning since there are now additional hummingbird 
feeding stations. Lots of good birds to report and all sightings uploaded to 
eBird with lists attached below for reference. 


Some highlights include:

usheri subspecies of the Creamy-breasted (Pale-tailed) Canastero with Gustavo 
Bautista at Vinchos—Angasmayo, see eBird checklist at 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18085921. This location is right 
along the highway and therefore easily accessible out of Ayacucho. 


Usual hummingbirds at Huembo, including Little Woodstar and Marvelous 
Spatuletail. http://ebird.org/ebird/peru/view/checklist?subID=S18129839 


Owlet Lodge at ACP Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva offered more hummingbirds at 
feeders including a pair of Sword-billed Hummingbirds. Also Rufous-capped 
Thornbill was visiting flowers near the parking area. In addition, the 
White-faced Nunbird was at the White-faced Nunbird sign. In recent months, 
Bicolored Antvireo has been seen along the Owlet trail as well but I‘ll have 
to save this species for another trip. See this eBird list for a sample of the 
hummingbirds 
http://ebird.org/ebird/MyEBird?cmd=list&rtype=loc&r=L1849237&time=year 

Elsewhere in the Abra Patricia area, Greenish Puffleg, Rufous-vented White-tip 
and Green-fronted Lancebill were visiting flowers along the highway on the 
eastern side of ACP Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva, close to the Alto Mayo mirador. 
See eBird checklists http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18189058 and 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18189133. Nearby, the Fondo Alto 
Nieva feeders were busy, also featuring Greenish Puffleg, plus Booted 
Racketail, Tawny-bellied Hermit, and multiple Royal Sunangels. This location 
offers camping, but no beds. Tour groups staying at Owlet Lodge have been 
visiting these feeders for a small additional entrance fee. Checklist here 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18188633. Near Garcia, I finally 
saw a Cinnamon-breasted Tody-Tyrant 
(http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18188832) in Chusquea bamboo. 
Further down this road, I encountered flocks with Vermilion Tanager, 
Golden-collared Honeyeater, Plumbeous-crowned Tyrannulet…in areas that are 
now part of ECOAN’s ACP Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva 


Violet-headed Hummingbird was a nice pick-up at La LLanteria in the Alto Mayo 
area, see http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18189303 


Unfortunately, I did not go to Waqanki this time and pretty much passed through 
Moyobamba. Would have picked up a few more hummingbirds but did not have the 
time. 


New signs at Puente Quiscarrumi, and oilbirds beneath the bridge in the 
crevasse as usual http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18190156 


ACONABIKH (Koepcke’s Hermit station) with Koepcke’s Hermit, Blue-fronted 
Lancebill, Gould’s Jewelfront...see 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18189798 

Also picked up berlepschi Maroon-tailed Parakeet and heard a Dotted Tanager 
with Henry Gonzales near the Escalera Tunel, see lists 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18190018 and 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S18190096 


This part of northern Peru is just getting more productive for hummingbirds and 
other birds for birding groups. 


Good birding,
Dan Lebbin

Manuel, many thanks again for updating your fantastic list of species and 
subspecies 

In your list are all confirmed and unconfirmed records so I think that the 
following 3 species should be included too; 


Palm Warbler from sept. 2013 - discovered by Jacob Drucker, first at Wayquecha 
and later a second one near Pantiacolla Lodge. 

Gray-backed Storm-Petrel  (Gunnar Engblom 2013)

Nuevamente Fernando Angulo a dado a conocer que la versión actualizada de 
“List of the Birds of Peru/Lista de las Aves de Perú” que se encuentra en 
la página web de la Unión de Ornitólogos del Perú (UNOP). 


En su comunicación Fernando les ha informado los más importantes cambios 
taxonómicos. Tambien se ha cambiado la categoría de diferentes especies 
basados en artículos y fotografías publicadas, así como grabaciones sonoras 
depositadas en instituciones acreditadas. Se sigue la clasificación del South 
American Checklist Committee (SACC). He íncluído su 'Criterio de inclusión' 
mediante códigos los cuales están descritos al final de la lista. Las 
especies sin código corresponden a la 'X' de SACC. 


Por lo tanto, el número de especies por código es:

X = residente: 1497
E = endémico: 105
NB = migratorio: 136
V = errante: 30
IN = introducido: 2
EX = extirpado: 0
H = hipotético: 73
Total: 1843

Hay que añadír las siguientes 4 especies, las cuales no están en el listado 
de SACC: Theristicus branickii, Calidris ruficollis, Gygis alba, y Icterus 
chrysocephalus. Las explicaciónes se encuentran en la última página en las 
notas resaltadas a colores. El total sería entonces 1847. 

Basado en publicaciones se sigue reducido la categoría “H” la cuál en dos 
años se redujo de 90 a 73. Sigamos publicando los registros documentados para 
seguír reduciendo ésta categoría.

Dear colleagues,

Together with some Peruvian colleagues I'm currently working on an up-to-date 
bird species list for Apurimac region (Peru). We are also considering records 
submitted via the eBird website. There we found some records that we would like 
to discuss directly with the corresponding contributors. But the problem we 
face is that eBird doesn't provide a contact address (e-mail address) of their 
contributors. Therefore, we would be very glad if you could send me (off-list) 
the e-mail addresses of the following colleagues (if some of them are also on 
Birdingperu and will directly see this message, even better): 


Michael G. Harvey
Judi Cooper

Hi, I'm a french ornithologist.
Since october 2012, I began a collection of observed and reported cases of this 
behavior, especially for Green and Striated Heron fishing with bait or lure. 

For an example, see this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntOmfO_sHjQ

For the moment, I already found a lot of cases.
My purpose is to realize a world map of this behavior for Butoroides sp. since 
the first description in 1958, in order to get a better picture of frequency 
and to discuss origin and other aspects in a future paper. 

If you have some of you personnaly observed such a behavior for any species of 
birds, especially for Herons, could you get in touch with me in private? 

Thank you by advance for your help.
Best regards,

Michel Antoine Réglade
(Toulouse, France).

I think they did this with a sense of humor and on purpose because it is such a 
crap job.

Thanks Barry for your comments. 
And I suppose that Gunnar will publish it  (good evidence by photo). Should be 
a pity if this record get lost.

  Thanks for your comments. You are correct that I have not included the
  mentioned species. There is a reason for it. We have the Comité de
  Registros de Aves Peruanas (CRAP) which evaluates all new records based on
  full documentation presented to the Committee or the Committee evaluates a
  published record that presumably has been reviewed by an editorial commitee
  of the journal.

  In the case of the Palm Warbler and Gray-backed Storm-Petrel no official
  documentation has been presented or the records published. Regarding the
  Acre Tody-Tyrant (H. cohnhafti), I am well aware that SACC has recognized
  this species. I have not included it in the list awaiting the recognition
  by SACC of other new species which will be new to Peru. As soon as this
  occurs and CRAP also votes on these species I will include them in the list
  and advice of the action taken.

Win,



Thanks for your comments.  You are correct that I have not included the
mentioned species.  There is a reason for it.  We have the Comité de
Registros de Aves Peruanas (CRAP) which evaluates all new records based on
full documentation presented to the Committee or the Committee evaluates a
published record that presumably has been reviewed by an editorial commitee
of the journal.



In the case of the Palm Warbler and Gray-backed Storm-Petrel no official
documentation has been presented or the records published.  Regarding the
Acre Tody-Tyrant (H. cohnhafti), I am well aware that SACC has recognized
this species.  I have not included it in the list awaiting the recognition
by SACC of other new species which will be new to Peru.  As soon as this
occurs and CRAP also votes on these species I will include them in the list
and advice of the action taken.



Manuel

Manuel, many thanks again for updating your fantastic list of species and 
subspecies 

In your list are all confirmed and unconfirmed records so I think that the 
following 3 species should be included too; 


Palm Warbler from sept. 2013 - discovered by Jacob Drucker, first at Wayquecha 
and later a second one near Pantiacolla Lodge. 

Gray-backed Storm-Petrel  (Gunnar Engblom 2013)
Acre Tody-Tyrant (H. cohnhafti) - disc. during an expedition in 2011

Nuevamente Fernando Angulo a dado a conocer que la versión actualizada de
"List of the Birds of Peru/Lista de las Aves de Perú" que se encuentra en
la página web de la Unión de Ornitólogos del Perú (UNOP).



En su comunicación Fernando les ha informado los más importantes cambios
taxonómicos.  Tambien se ha cambiado la categoría de diferentes especies
basados en artículos y fotografías publicadas, así como grabaciones sonoras
depositadas en instituciones acreditadas.  Se sigue la clasificación del
South American Checklist Committee (SACC).  He íncluído su 'Criterio de
inclusión' mediante códigos los cuales están descritos al final de la
lista.  Las especies sin código corresponden a la 'X' de SACC.



Por lo tanto, el número de especies por código es:



X = residente: 1497

E = endémico: 105

NB = migratorio: 136

V = errante: 30

IN = introducido: 2

EX = extirpado: 0

H = hipotético: 73

Total: 1843



Hay que añadír las siguientes 4 especies, las cuales no están en el listado
de SACC: *Theristicus branickii*, *Calidris ruficollis*, *Gygis alba*,
y *Icterus
chrysocephalus*.  Las explicaciónes se encuentran en la última página en
las notas resaltadas a colores.  El total sería entonces 1847.

Basado en publicaciones se sigue reducido la categoría "H" la cuál en dos
años se redujo de 90 a 73.  Sigamos publicando los registros documentados
para seguír reduciendo ésta categoría.

Hi All,
>The text below was copied and pasted from a trip report I posted to 
cloudbirders.com. Unfortunately, yahoogroups wouldn't let me post the links, so 
see below if interested. 

>Good Birding,
>Jacob Drucker
>Amherst, MA, USA 
>Intro: Organized pelagic trips off the coast of Peru have become
increasingly popular in birding itineraries, and with good reason. The Humboldt
Current is one of the most productive marine ecosystems in the world, as cold,
nutrient-rich water is brought up from Antarctica. Upwellings along the
continental shelf (which is relatively close to shore here) further contribute
to the marine productivity of this region. Despite the entire coastline having
excellent pelagic birding potential, most coverage is based out of the Lima
area, in many cases for logistical reasons, but also because the waters around
Pucusana and Callo can be particularly productive. However, these organized
trips are often quite expensive (usually $150-$275) and only run on specific
dates, making it hard to get offshore for many birders.
>            One
alternative to this was suggested by Gunnar Engblom of Kolibri
Expeditions—hiring a fishing boat out of a smaller port town. He said he had
done it before with little difficulty and for a relatively cheap coast out of
the town of Puerto Lomas, Arequipa (though the town is only an hour collective
ride from Nazca). Given the limitations described above, and our desperation to
get offshore, my friend and birding companion Justin Baldwin thought we’d 
give 

it a shot. Puerto Lomas’s location is a perfect setup for marine birds, with
the continental shelf and several canyons relatively close to shore, and the
Nazca ridge terminates near here as well. We were ultimately very well
rewarded, obtaining the first photos of Kermadec Petrels (Pterodroma neglecta) 
in Peru, and documenting previously 

undescribed presences of Galapagos and Cook’s Petrel (Pterodroma phaeogypius 
and cookii), 

along with a fantastic suite of more expected species. 
>            However, we
must advise that this trip is not for
everyone. Before committing to experience, please consider that all vessels
that operate out of Puerto Lomas are no longer than 20 feet, and do not have
toilets or life jackets. Be prepared to potentially be urinating and defecating
over the side of a small, pitching boat for multiple days. Organizing getting
offshore was also far from easy, and was pretty much entirely done under the
table.
> 
>            Logistics: Getting to Puerto Lomas is
relatively straightforward. It’s probably easiest to get there from Nazca,
where collectivos (~10 soles) leave from the roundabout when full, roughly at
specific times clustered around the late morning and late afternoon. The
roundabout is a short walk north from the main bus station. This is in a decent
neighborhood, with plenty of places to stock up on supplies, internet cafes,
and a couple ATMs around. If you have your own car, Lomas is a straight shot
down the Panamerican Highway, with one right turn after about 90km, which is
well signed. The collectivos drop you off at the Plaza de Armas in Lomas, from
which you can see the docks. Follow the one paved road through what is the main
street in town with a number of shops. 
>Once in town, our first order of
business was finding a place to stay. By asking locals, we soon found ourselves
checking into the inconspicuous, but very clean, comfortable, and secure Hotel 
Lomas, 

costing 25 soles a head per night. Given the cleanliness, security, and
hospitality offered here for a reasonable price, this seemed like the best 
place 

to stay in Lomas, though apparently there is a more luxurious hotel somewhere
in town. 
>Our next challenge was brokering a
deal to get offshore. Gunnar had told us that the way he had done this before
was through the owner of Hostal Don Agucho in Nazca, who also owns the more
luxurious hotel in Lomas. This woman—Senora Delcy apparently knew somebody 
with 

a boat, who took them offshore for one day, for a price of about 700 soles
total for everyone on the trip. Trying to hire a boat through this option was
our first intent, so before getting to Nazca, we tried emailing Senora Delcy
via the Hotel Don Agucho email address. We didn’t get a reply, so went to the
Hostal in person to ask about a boat connection. Senora Delcy wasn’t around,
but when we told the woman at reception who we were and what we wanted, she
acted as if she had received our email and was expecting us. Despite this, the
only advice she had to offer was to just go and talk to the locals. Not wanting
to have gone all that way for nothing, and still eager to get offshore, we
followed her advice.
>While waiting for the collectivo to
leave from the Nazca roundabout, Justin (who must be acknowledged for being the
Spanish speaker between the two of us, thus brokering all deals) began chatting
with one of the other guys going to Lomas. He seemed willing to take us out,
but wanted a hefty price (2,000 soles), and due to his fishing priorities,
needed to stay out for at least three days. This was beyond our money and time
budget, but once we got to Lomas, he pointed to a trio of guys sitting around
on the porch of a house by the waterfront, who were his friends, and said to
talk to them. After checking in at the hotel, we approached them, and made our
case. We did most of our talking to a younger guy named Kenny. After an hour of
just sitting around chatting and drinking, we learned that Kenny and his
friends were going out for a week the next day, so couldn’t take us, but
another one of Kenny’s friends, known as El Garfield might be able to. Kenny
called El Garfield, and told us all to meet in another hour in the same place. 
>In this time, we went to town wharf
to do some seawatching and enjoy the guano birds, and were approached by an
older gentleman who seemed like he had boat connections. We told him what we
were hoping for—one day offshore, leaving predawn and getting back in the
afternoon, for less than 500 soles per person—but he shook his head saying 
that 

the cost of gas was more than that, and we would waste all our time getting far
out, and would just have to turn around. He told us to find him later and he
might have some connections for us, but in a half our or so we saw him going to
sea himself, so that option went down the drain as well. 
>Once we met Kenny back on his
porch, El Garfield was nowhere in evidence, despite Kenny calling him a few
times. Losing hope, we said our thanks to Kenny and told him we were going to
look around some more for other people to ask. After wandering the streets
without luck, we came across Kenny sitting on the sidewalk, in front of a house
that turned out to be El Garfield’s. El Garfield eventually emerged, and he,
Kenny, and Justin discussed our interest. The final outcome was us being
offered to tag along on a two-day trip with El Garfield and his crew, for the
cost of 1,000 soles. This price covered food, extra gas for going out further
than usual, and extra incentive to return to shore after two days if they
didn’t catch their target fish. After weighing our options—taking into 
account 

time and safety—we agreed, setting a departure time of 8am the next morning,
December 27th. 
>Of course, though we met at 8
sharp, we didn’t actually get going until about 10:30. We slept on the boat 
the 

night of the 27th and 28th, arriving back in port at 4:30
am on the 29th. We paid El Garfield the 1000 soles back in port, but
he also told us to pay another 50 for food. This was almost definitely a scam,
but exhausted, we didn’t argue. 
> 
>Conditions: The
conditions on this boat were far from the standard met by most organized
pelagic trips, and should be strongly considered before trying to embark from
Puerto Lomas. All the boats in the harbor were 25 feet long max, equipped with
hand-held 65 horse power engines, a radio system for communicating with other
boats, and a small cabin in the boat’s hull. Some had a mesh cloth erected
above the deck for shade, but ours did not. None of the boats have 
toilets—you 

go to the bathroom over the edge of the boat, which, if your offshore for more
than one day, is pretty much inevitable. Our boat did not have life jackets
either. 
>Despite all this, we felt safe the
entire time, and weather was quite pleasant. It was clear the entire time, with
no sign of precipitation. Wind was usually pretty calm, but maxed out  at 
about 15-20 mph in the evenings. The waves 

weren’t too big, with mostly 3-8 foot seas, but occasionally grew to 10-12
feet, becoming progressively choppier as the wind picked up in the afternoon.
Though this made travel a little bumpy at times, the boat doesn’t move very
fast, so spray was relatively minimal.
> One thing to keep in mind is that the crew
liked to blast music from loudspeakers whenever they weren’t trying to do
something that entailed thought or sleep, so this was an annoyance we got used
to, but may have influenced some of the lack of close approach to the boat of
many birds. 
>The food situation was pretty good.
The crew consisted of three fishermen-El Garfield, Caesar, and XXX, who did
most of the cooking. There was portable gas stove on board, which was used for
boiling water, and frying rice, chicken, potatoes and a few other vegetables.
We got one fresh, solid meal a day, though there were usually enough leftovers
to get by on. Water and Sporade (like Gatorade) were provided. Still, we
brought some extra bread, snacks, and drinks for ourselves in town before
departure. 
>At night, we slept in the tiny,
cramped little cabin in the hull, where there were some salty blankets and
salty cushions to lie down on. Night was when the fishermen got to work, using
glowsticks a few different lines to catch large squid, which they would then
use as bait for larger fish, their ultimate catch goal. This made the deck 
pretty 

wet and slimy over the course of the night, so we stayed in the cabin pretty
much the entire time, occasionally emerging to see what was going on. If you
have a week stomach for or morale for watching squids heads get ripped off as
they are thrown down on the deck of a boat, gasping their last breaths in a
farting sound, it may be one more reason that this trip may not be for you, but
it was definitely an interesting thing to see. 
> 
>Offshore Itinerary: Our initial strategy while birding was to
cruise several of the canyons along the continental shelf, some 25-45 km
offshore. We had a GPS with us, so went on Google earth the night before
departure and entered the coordinates for several points along each canyon
(posted below). Since the canyons are just as good for fishing as for birding,
it was mutually beneficial to visit them. We spent most of the first day
getting to the first canyon, getting there around 3:30pm. We spent the evening
and night going through its center. When we woke up the next morning, we had
drifted outside the canyon. The crew cleaned up breakfast, threw some guts over
the side (good for birds—see below), and went to sleep. We then proceeded to
spend 8am-2:30pm sitting in the same spot. For the first hour or so this
continued to be productive for birds, but activity quickly petered out. Wishing
to respect the crew that had so kindly smuggled us offshore, we didn’t nag 
them 

to go somewhere else, but waited for them to start doing their routine again.
After a long afternoon of birding and sleeping on the deck, the crew finally
emerged. Shortly after, we spotted another small boat from Lomas, that appeared
to be loaded down with fish. Our crew radio’d theirs, to find out where 
they’d 

been, and soon we were moving again—working south along the shelf, but away
from the other canyons we’d hoped to visit. Still, we were in deep water, and
we found some good birds anyway. We got to their other fishing spot after dark,
and after they didn’t have much success fishing, headed back to port, 
arriving 

at 4:30 on the 29th. 
>We did buy some canned sardines and
vegetable oil, which we combined and let sit in the sun for a few hours to use
for chum. Though this worked in short bouts, explaining to the concept of
moving upwind and drifting with the chum was difficult to explain to the crew,
so when we did pick up birds (only Elliot’s and Wedge-rumped Storm-petrels 
and 

White-chinned Petrel came in), we couldn’t stay on them for long. The blood 
and 

guts the crew accumulated and threw off the boat was much more worthwhile.
> 
>Birding: Our trip started with us sitting on the boat in port for
two hours as we got ready to go. Though definitely a bit frustrating, we were
able to pick up all the inshore guano birds, including Red-legged Cormorant 
(Phalacrocorax gaimardi) and Humboldt 

Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti). A
decent sized flock of Grey Gull (Leucophaeus
modestus) took off from the beach across the bay, and flew by at relatively
close range. The harbor was also good for rocky coast, with a few Blackish
Oystercatcher (Haematopus ater),
Surfbird (Aphriza virgata), Whimbrel
(Numenius phaeopus) and Surf
Cincldoes (Cinclodes taczanowskii). Terns
were moving as well, including Elegant (Thalasseus
elegans), Royal, (T. maximus),
and Peruvian (Sternula lorata). 
>Finally getting going at around
10:30, we started hitting Peruvian Diving Petrels (Pelecanoides garnotii) about 
1km out, at first in pairs, but found 

several rafts of 2-10 individuals around the shoals 5-6km from shore, finishing
with a total of 52. Lots of cormorants and pelicans, some Peruvian Terns and
five Humboldt Penguin were present as well in this area, and we had our first
Sooty Shearwater (Puffinus griseus) 3km
out. Our complete inshore checklist can be seen here: 
>http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S16115664
>            From 6-16
km offshore, we started running into White-chinned Petrels (Procellaria 
aequinoctialis), the bulk of our Sooty Shearwaters, and an immature 

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrina) bombing
back towards shore. Further out, Pink-footed Shearwaters (Puffinus creapotus) 
began to join the mix as well. Other highlights 

in this zone included Red Phalarope (Phalaropus
fulicarius), and a Parasitic Jaeger (Stercorarius
parasiticus).
> By the time we got 20km out, the wind began to
pickup, and we had our first Albatrosses and Storm-petrels among the previously
mentioned species. For the rest of the afternoon/evening we totaled 9 
Thalassarche albatross, only three of 

which were close enough to ID as Salvin’s (T.
salvini). Elliot’s Storm-petrel (Oceanites
gracilis) began to appear at low density here as well. At 25 km, we caught
glimpses of a few Cook’s Petrels (Pterodroma
cookii). These birds were in active molt, contradicting both the molt
timing, and expected date of occurrence described in Birds of Peru (Schulenberg 
et al. 2007). After discussion with 

experts, we concluded that these were immature or non-breeding birds from the
Codfish Island population of Cook’s that stayed in the productive waters of 
the 

Humboldt instead of returning to New Zealand. This species proved to be the
most common Procellariid far  offshore
(>35km), even outnumbering White-chinned petrel and Pink-footed Shearwater.
>We arrived at the center of the
first canyon (32km offshore) at around 4:30pm, greeted by a distant flyby
Chilean Skua (Stercorarius chilensis).
We told the crew to stop for a bit so we could try chumming, which they agreed
to. We dumped some of our sardine/veggie oil concoction in the water and
waited. By about five minutes we had drifted about 50 meters from the slick,
but could still see a White-chinned Petrel and Elliot’s Storm-petrels coming
into it. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the trip was when a Galapagos Petrel 
(Pterodroma phaeogypia) appeared 10 

meters away from the boat, briefly checking us (and possibly the chum) out
before heading further out to sea. Unfortunately we didn’t get any photos of
this beautiful and close bird, but did obtain some for another Galapagos Petrel
seen the next day. Despite much searching in the literature on tubenoses and
the birds of Peru, I couldn’t find any records this far south of this 
species. 

>Continuing down the Canyon in the
evening continued to be very productive, with a few more distant Thalassarche, 
and Cook’s Petrels, more 

Pink-footed Shearwaters, White-chinned Petrel, and Elliot’s Storm-Petrels.
Around 5pm we found our first Black/Markham’s Storm-petrel (unfortunately we
never found any conclusive Markham’s), and at dusk caught sight of our
long-anticipated Hornby’s Storm-petrels (Oceanodroma
hornbyi). The day ended with a basic-plumaged Swallow-tailed Gull (Creagrus 
furcatus) following our light 

after sunset. Even at night the birding continued, with un-identified
Storm-petrels making quick passes by the boat, and we were woken up by the crew
when a Wedge-rumped Storm-petrel (Oceanodroma
tethys) landed on the boat, allowing us to examine it in the hand before
release. Our offshore checklist for the first day can be found here: 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S16115611 

>We awoke the next morning just
before sunrise to a great Storm-petrel show. As the crew cleaned up the deck
there, we watched a slow, steady stream of Hornby’s Storm-petrels moving from
north-south, often passing within 10 m of the boat. By the time there was
significant daylight, the stream had stopped, but we counted 45 individuals.
Many Elliot’s and Wedge-rumped Storm-petrels passed the boat, as well as 
another 

bird we were able to ID as a Black Storm-petrel (Oceanodroma melania)—a 
species south of its mapped range in the 

field guide. In this early morning, relatively stationary period, other
highlights included a few more Cook’s Petrels, Peruvian and Black (Chlidonias 
niger) Terns, a distant 

Swallow-tailed Gull and a Chilean Skua flyby.
>At this point (now about 7:30 am),
the crew threw a bucket of squid guts overboard. Wedge-rumped and Elliot’s
storm-petrels were the first to show up, followed by a White-chinned Petrel,
but before long two of our three Buller’s Albatross for the day came in,
separately. The albatross hung around and squabbled over the chum for at least
20 or 30 minutes before continuing on their way. While this was going on, two
Long-tailed Jaegers (Sterocorarius longicaudus)
flew by distantly. Once the Buller’s had moved on, this opened the doors for
other scavengers to come in, and another Chilean Skua—this one very
obliging—fed in the guts for another half hour. No sooner than it took off, a
Parasitic Jaeger came and harassed the storm-petrels for a little while.
Another Buller’s Albatross came in as well.
>Before we knew it was 9am, and bird
activity was beginning to die off. Between intermittent napping, the late
morning and early afternoon produced two more Long-tailed Jaegers, a distant
Salvin’s Albatross, and a single Sooty Shearwater, and several Elliot’s
Storm-petrels. 
>Finally, by 2:30, we were on the
move again, and with the increasing afternoon wind, picking up more birds. A 
Thalassarche made a relatively close 

pass, and though initially identified as a Salvin’s, later input on photos of
the bird revised the ID to a Chatham Albatross (T. eremita) based on the extent 
of a dark hood and a 

yellowish-green bill. A few more Cook’s petrels, Sooty and Pink-footed
Shearwaters put in some appearances too, plus another Black Storm-petrel Then I
spotted a medium-sized, dark compact petrel with obvious white flashes at the
base of its primaries—a Kermadec Petrel (Pterodroma
neglecta)! Though this individual went unphotographed, we saw two more dark
morph Kermadecs over the course of the next hour and a half, obtaining the
first photographs of this species in Peru. According to the crew and the GPS,
we had moved far enough offshore to be in warmer water (45km) so it was nice to
see this reflected in the bird community!
>Soon the sun was starting to set,
and more Elliot’s, Wedge-rumped, and a couple Black Storm-petrels began to
emerge again, and we spotted another Salvin’s albatross. Larids were shifting
about too, featuring several Peruvian, and a flock of 17 Black Terns, and our
last Swallow-tailed Gull. Seeing more Cook’s Petrels provided us with the 
great 

opportunity to study their molt and plumage variation in different lightings.
We were thrilled to come across another Galapagos Petrel, this one taking its
time foraging in bouts of soaring, fluttering, and dropping on the water,
allowing for some useable photos. The great day ended with the dusk parade of
Storm-petrels, including 6 more Hornby’s. An uneventful night of fishing got 
as 

back to shore by 4:30am. Our checklist (with photos) from 12/28 can be seen

Hi Dan the map I sent CRAP was not intended to be the same as the map in the 
publication.  The map sent to CRAP had all locations from our geolocators that 
fell in Peru along with the error buffer.  The map in the publication showed a 
migration path and kernel density estimates (different from error buffers) for 
wintering locations.  Hope that clears things up.

Hi Rob and all,

To be honest, the map you sent to Fernando, which was passed around to CRAP, 
was confusing to me. The data is showed did not appear in the publication in 
Beason et al. (2012)'s paper, so I was not sure what the source was. By the 
time I received your map, I had already cast my vote... and my confusion about 
the source of the data kept me from changing it. You've mentioned that the data 
on that map was collected from one of the four individual swifts that were used 
in the publication of the Beason et al paper, so would you be able to clarify 
the discrepancy in the maps? Many thanks! 


Good birding,
Dan Lane

 With regards to the Black Swift (BLSW) geolocator data I wanted to share a 
couple of maps that show the locations from the geolocator dataset that fell 
within Peru. I also made a map that shows Tambopata where there was a possible 
BLSW sighting with geolocator locations overlaid. 

 

 I thought that these maps would be of interest for birders that may be near 
some of these areas during migration.

Dear Friends, 

 On 6-7 September an International Shorebird Counts will be held as a part of 
the event series of the World Shorebirds Day. We'd be thrilled if Peruvian 
birders would support this idea and would join this global event, supported by 
eBird. 

 

 Please help us to make it a worldwide event. More details can be found in the 
blog of the special day.

 Don't worry about the early announcement. At this point we'd like to see the 
sites booked on the map. :) 

 Thanks for your support and happy birding.

El tremendo crimen ecológico que cometen las mafias del Oro es terrible...
la selva esta muriendo completamente y es muy difícil que pueda
recuperarse. Una cosa es que te lo cuenten o leas la información y otra
es mirar y ver lo que esta sucediendo.



Esta es una tragedia nacional. Hagamos patria y difundámoslo. Hay que
obligar a las autoridades, que están rodeados de mediocres y timoratos que
además son una sarta de cobardes y forzarlos a que detengan a las mafias de
mineros ilegales que están devastando esta zona tan sensible del país.

Great work Jacob. And especially your report about your pelagic offers 
fantastic new information. 

One day on a small boat should already too much for me, so I admire your

Hi All,
I recently attempted to post a link to a trip report on cloudbirders.com with 
my notes from 4.5 months living/working/birding on upper Manu Rd, but 
yahoogroups wouldn't let me post the link. Though you can browse 
coudbirders.com for the link, which also contains notes on birding in the area, 
you can find my annoted list with notes on the status and distribution of the 
birds around Wayqecha Biological Station (2250-3400m) below. 


Good Birding,
Jacob Drucker
Amherst, MA, USA
·       Hooded Tinamou (Nothocercus
nigrocapillus)—Fairly common, several heard daily, with the highest numbers
in mid-late October. Occasionally seen running along trails in humid forest.
·       Brown Tinamou (Crypterellus
obsoletus)—Not as common as Hooded Tinamou, but still usually heard daily.
Rarely seen.
·       Andean Guan (Penelope
montagnii)—Usually pretty conspicuous, and encountered almost every day.

encountered raptor from 

August-mid November. There appeared to be a resident pair of adults and at
least one juvenile cruising around the valleys in the area. Only seen once
after this period--, a juvenile over the Puna on 12/10.
·       Broad-winged Hawk (Buteo
platypterus)—First appearing on 11/7, Broad-wingeds replaced the local
White-throated Hawks hunting the local valleys for the end of the season,
favoring the area around Pillahuata. At least 2 adults and 2 juveniles present.

encountered on 8/22 and 11/5, at 

dawn and dusk around Esperanza respectively. JB had them on other days as well. 

·       Swallow-tailed Nightjar (Uropsalis segmentata)—Fairly common 
in area, with the stretch of 

road between the ecolodge and Esperanza being the most productive, especially
around the two large landslides/cliffs. Up to seven heard in one night along
this stretch in early September, but vocal activity started to peeter out
around late October. One very long-tailed male roosted on the cliff at the base
of the Pillahuata trail.

violetear, but more common 

Nov-Dec.
·       Speckled Hummingbird (Adelomyia melanogenys)—One or two 
usually encountered around lower 

portion of trocha oso
·       Chestnut-breasted Coronet (Boissonneua matthewsii)—Elevational 
migrant? From Aug-mid Sept 

found only on lower portions of trocha oso, but later into season seen higher,
regularly on road to 3100m. 
·       Green-fronted
Lancebill (Doryfera ludovicae)—Above standard elevational range. One 
individual in 

humid forest on trocha zorro on 9/4, another seen traplining in elfin forest on
10/14.
·       Gould’s (Collared) Inca (Coeligena (torquata) omissa)—Most 
common hummingbird at river, 

usually seen on the lower portion of oso, sometimes as high as the road.

·       Shining Sunbeam (Agleactis
cupripennis)—Seasonal migrant, with a major influx in numbers in the
beginning of September. 
·       Tyrian Metaltail (Metallura
tyrianthina)—One of the most common species along the road, particularly
above Canopy. 
·       Rufous-capped Thornbill (Chalcostigma ruficapilla)—The most 
common hummingbird in elfin 

forest throughout the season, particularly on trochas Picaflor, Helecho, and
the eastern portion of Zorro. 
·       White-bellied Woodstar (Chaetocercus mulstant)—Slowly 
decreased in numbers as the season 

progressed, but never common. Most frequently encountered around Pillahuata. 
·       Masked Trogon (Trogon
personatus)—Several heard/seen daily. 
·       Crested Quetzal (Pharomachrus
antisianus)—Heard a few times in October/November calling from down by
river. 
·       Golden-headed Quetzal (Pharomachrus auriceps)—A few heard 
daily. 

·       Highland Motmot (Momotus
aequatorialis)—Attempted nesting at river, heard from road below tunnels
for a few days in mid-August. 
·       Blue-banded Toucanet (Aulacorhynchus coeruleicinctis)—A few 
usually heard or seen daily, 

usually in humid forest, but sometimes in elfin. 
·       Gray-breasted Mountain-Toucan (Andigena hypoglauca)—See 
blue-banded toucanet. Attempted nesting 

below tunnels. Often around Esperanza and Canopy. 
·       Bar-bellied Woodpecker (Venliornis nigriceps)—Uncommon, seen 
once in August, then not again 

until November, when one frequented a flock on trocha oso, a nest was found at
the river, and one was mist-netted at Esperanza. 
·       Crimson-mantled Woodpecker (Colaptes riviolli)—A few 
heard/seen daily, maybe most common on 

road between Esperanza and canopy. Nesting on trocha zorro. 
·       Crimson-bellied
Woodpecker (Campephilus haematogaster)—Above standard elevation. First found 
by BC on trocha 

zorro (2800m) in humid forest, then again by BV in roughly the same place on 
11/14. 

A few other times I would hear ‘double-knocks’ from the bottom of trocha 
oso 

between Mariposa and Picaflor that were presumably this species. Large,
Campephilus-like holes were also observed in large dead snags below oso,
visible from road below tunnels and looking towards the trails. 
·       Tyrannine Woodcreeper (Dendrocincla tyrannina)—Mostly detected 
by mistnetting Aug-Sept, 

but heard almost daily starting in October, particularly around Esperanza, the
first tunnel, 
·       Strong-billed Woodcreeper (Xiphocolaptes 
promeropirhynchus)—Generally uncommon, but a few resident 

birds at the elevations of trocha oso that were more easily heard than seen.
·       Montane Woodcreeper (Lepidocolaptes lacrymiger)—Fairy common 
accompanier of mixed 

species flocks. 
·       Greater
Scythebill (Campyloramphus pucherani)—One individual seen in a mixed species 
flock at 2700m 

on trocha oso by JM on 10/15. Looked for repeatedly but never seen gain. 
·       Pearled Treerunner (Margarornis squamiger)—Common participant 
of mixed species flocks 

at all elevations. Perhaps most common 2750-2900m.
·       Streaked Tuftedcheek (Pseudocolaptes boisseaneauii)—A couple 
usually encountered daily in 

mixed species flocks or singly, but not always. 
·       Puna Thisteltail (Schizoeca
helleri)—Fairly common around treeline, from 2800m and higher in open,
brushy, elfin forest. Often more easily heard than seen.
·       Azara’s Spinetail (Synallaxis
azarae)—common, particularly in areas with extensive bamboo in humid or
successional forest, but never detected above 2900m
·       Marcapata
Spinetail (Cranioleuca marcapatae)—Inconspicuous, but usually encountered 
daily, 

particularly between the Tunnels, Esperanza, and the western portion of trocha
zorro.
·       Buff-throated Treehunter (Thripadectes scrutator)—Never seen 
personally, but one mist-netted 

on 10/29 just past the upper bridges on trocha oso. 
·       Striped Treehunter (Thripadectes holostictus)—resident pair in 
extensive bamboo below 

Pillahuata, at 2450m. Interestingly, more responsive to T. scrutator playback
than its own species. 
·       Barred Antthrush (Chamaeza
mollisima)—At least one heard almost daily, but only actually seen 3 times
the entire field season, always on the lower portions of trocha oso. 
·       Undulated Antpitta (Grallaria squamiger)—Heard several times

Hi All,
I recently attempted to post a link to a trip report on cloudbirders.com with 
my notes from 4.5 months living/working/birding on upper Manu Rd, but 
yahoogroups wouldn't let me post the link. Though you can browse 
coudbirders.com for the link, which also contains notes on birding in the area, 
you can find my annoted list with notes on the status and distribution of the 
birds around Wayqecha Biological Station (2250-3400m) below. 


Good Birding,

Subject: Detailed Puerto Lomas Pelagic Report
From: Jacob Drucker <jacobdrucker92 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2014 12:11:36 -0500
> Hi All,
> The text below was copied and pasted from a trip report I posted to 
cloudbirders.com. Unfortunately, yahoogroups wouldn't let me post the links, so 
see below if interested. 

> Good Birding,
> Jacob Drucker
> Amherst, MA, USA 
> Intro: Organized pelagic trips off the coast of Peru have become increasingly 
popular in birding itineraries, and with good reason. The Humboldt Current is 
one of the most productive marine ecosystems in the world, as cold, 
nutrient-rich water is brought up from Antarctica. Upwellings along the 
continental shelf (which is relatively close to shore here) further contribute 
to the marine productivity of this region. Despite the entire coastline having 
excellent pelagic birding potential, most coverage is based out of the Lima 
area, in many cases for logistical reasons, but also because the waters around 
Pucusana and Callo can be particularly productive. However, these organized 
trips are often quite expensive (usually $150-$275) and only run on specific 
dates, making it hard to get offshore for many birders. 

> 
> One alternative to this was suggested by Gunnar Engblom of Kolibri 
Expeditions—hiring a fishing boat out of a smaller port town. He said he had 
done it before with little difficulty and for a relatively cheap coast out of 
the town of Puerto Lomas, Arequipa (though the town is only an hour collective 
ride from Nazca). Given the limitations described above, and our desperation to 
get offshore, my friend and birding companion Justin Baldwin thought we’d give 
it a shot. Puerto Lomas’s location is a perfect setup for marine birds, with 
the continental shelf and several canyons relatively close to shore, and the 
Nazca ridge terminates near here as well. We were ultimately very well 
rewarded, obtaining the first photos of Kermadec Petrels (Pterodroma neglecta) 
in Peru, and documenting previously undescribed presences of Galapagos and 
Cook’s Petrel (Pterodroma phaeogypius and cookii), along with a fantastic suite 
of more expected species. 

> 
> However, we must advise that this trip is not for everyone. Before committing 
to experience, please consider that all vessels that operate out of Puerto 
Lomas are no longer than 20 feet, and do not have toilets or life jackets. Be 
prepared to potentially be urinating and defecating over the side of a small, 
pitching boat for multiple days. Organizing getting offshore was also far from 
easy, and was pretty much entirely done under the table. 

> 
>  
> 
> Logistics: Getting to Puerto Lomas is relatively straightforward. It’s 
probably easiest to get there from Nazca, where collectivos (~10 soles) leave 
from the roundabout when full, roughly at specific times clustered around the 
late morning and late afternoon. The roundabout is a short walk north from the 
main bus station. This is in a decent neighborhood, with plenty of places to 
stock up on supplies, internet cafes, and a couple ATMs around. If you have 
your own car, Lomas is a straight shot down the Panamerican Highway, with one 
right turn after about 90km, which is well signed. The collectivos drop you off 
at the Plaza de Armas in Lomas, from which you can see the docks. Follow the 
one paved road through what is the main street in town with a number of shops. 

> 
> Once in town, our first order of business was finding a place to stay. By 
asking locals, we soon found ourselves checking into the inconspicuous, but 
very clean, comfortable, and secure Hotel Lomas, costing 25 soles a head per 
night. Given the cleanliness, security, and hospitality offered here for a 
reasonable price, this seemed like the best place to stay in Lomas, though 
apparently there is a more luxurious hotel somewhere in town. 

> 
> Our next challenge was brokering a deal to get offshore. Gunnar had told us 
that the way he had done this before was through the owner of Hostal Don Agucho 
in Nazca, who also owns the more luxurious hotel in Lomas. This woman—Senora 
Delcy apparently knew somebody with a boat, who took them offshore for one day, 
for a price of about 700 soles total for everyone on the trip. Trying to hire a 
boat through this option was our first intent, so before getting to Nazca, we 
tried emailing Senora Delcy via the Hotel Don Agucho email address. We didn’t 
get a reply, so went to the Hostal in person to ask about a boat connection. 
Senora Delcy wasn’t around, but when we told the woman at reception who we were 
and what we wanted, she acted as if she had received our email and was 
expecting us. Despite this, the only advice she had to offer was to just go and 
talk to the locals. Not wanting to have gone all that way for nothing, and 
still eager to get offshore, we followed her advice. 

> 
> While waiting for the collectivo to leave from the Nazca roundabout, Justin 
(who must be acknowledged for being the Spanish speaker between the two of us, 
thus brokering all deals) began chatting with one of the other guys going to 
Lomas. He seemed willing to take us out, but wanted a hefty price (2,000 
soles), and due to his fishing priorities, needed to stay out for at least 
three days. This was beyond our money and time budget, but once we got to 
Lomas, he pointed to a trio of guys sitting around on the porch of a house by 
the waterfront, who were his friends, and said to talk to them. After checking 
in at the hotel, we approached them, and made our case. We did most of our 
talking to a younger guy named Kenny. After an hour of just sitting around 
chatting and drinking, we learned that Kenny and his friends were going out for 
a week the next day, so couldn’t take us, but another one of Kenny’s friends, 
known as El Garfield might be able to. Kenny called El Garfield, and told us 
all to meet in another hour in the same place. 

> 
> In this time, we went to town wharf to do some seawatching and enjoy the 
guano birds, and were approached by an older gentleman who seemed like he had 
boat connections. We told him what we were hoping for—one day offshore, leaving 
predawn and getting back in the afternoon, for less than 500 soles per 
person—but he shook his head saying that the cost of gas was more than that, 
and we would waste all our time getting far out, and would just have to turn 
around. He told us to find him later and he might have some connections for us, 
but in a half our or so we saw him going to sea himself, so that option went 
down the drain as well. 

> 
> Once we met Kenny back on his porch, El Garfield was nowhere in evidence, 
despite Kenny calling him a few times. Losing hope, we said our thanks to Kenny 
and told him we were going to look around some more for other people to ask. 
After wandering the streets without luck, we came across Kenny sitting on the 
sidewalk, in front of a house that turned out to be El Garfield’s. El Garfield 
eventually emerged, and he, Kenny, and Justin discussed our interest. The final 
outcome was us being offered to tag along on a two-day trip with El Garfield 
and his crew, for the cost of 1,000 soles. This price covered food, extra gas 
for going out further than usual, and extra incentive to return to shore after 
two days if they didn’t catch their target fish. After weighing our 
options—taking into account time and safety—we agreed, setting a departure time 
of 8am the next morning, December 27th. 

> 
> Of course, though we met at 8 sharp, we didn’t actually get going until about 
10:30. We slept on the boat the night of the 27th and 28th, arriving back in 
port at 4:30 am on the 29th. We paid El Garfield the 1000 soles back in port, 
but he also told us to pay another 50 for food. This was almost definitely a 
scam, but exhausted, we didn’t argue. 

> 
>  
> 
> Conditions: The conditions on this boat were far from the standard met by 
most organized pelagic trips, and should be strongly considered before trying 
to embark from Puerto Lomas. All the boats in the harbor were 25 feet long max, 
equipped with hand-held 65 horse power engines, a radio system for 
communicating with other boats, and a small cabin in the boat’s hull. Some had 
a mesh cloth erected above the deck for shade, but ours did not. None of the 
boats have toilets—you go to the bathroom over the edge of the boat, which, if 
your offshore for more than one day, is pretty much inevitable. Our boat did 
not have life jackets either. 

> 
> Despite all this, we felt safe the entire time, and weather was quite 
pleasant. It was clear the entire time, with no sign of precipitation. Wind was 
usually pretty calm, but maxed out at about 15-20 mph in the evenings. The 
waves weren’t too big, with mostly 3-8 foot seas, but occasionally grew to 
10-12 feet, becoming progressively choppier as the wind picked up in the 
afternoon. Though this made travel a little bumpy at times, the boat doesn’t 
move very fast, so spray was relatively minimal. 

> 
> One thing to keep in mind is that the crew liked to blast music from 
loudspeakers whenever they weren’t trying to do something that entailed thought 
or sleep, so this was an annoyance we got used to, but may have influenced some 
of the lack of close approach to the boat of many birds. 

> 
> The food situation was pretty good. The crew consisted of three fishermen-El 
Garfield, Caesar, and XXX, who did most of the cooking. There was portable gas 
stove on board, which was used for boiling water, and frying rice, chicken, 
potatoes and a few other vegetables. We got one fresh, solid meal a day, though 
there were usually enough leftovers to get by on. Water and Sporade (like 
Gatorade) were provided. Still, we brought some extra bread, snacks, and drinks 
for ourselves in town before departure. 

> 
> At night, we slept in the tiny, cramped little cabin in the hull, where there 
were some salty blankets and salty cushions to lie down on. Night was when the 
fishermen got to work, using glowsticks a few different lines to catch large 
squid, which they would then use as bait for larger fish, their ultimate catch 
goal. This made the deck pretty wet and slimy over the course of the night, so 
we stayed in the cabin pretty much the entire time, occasionally emerging to 
see what was going on. If you have a week stomach for or morale for watching 
squids heads get ripped off as they are thrown down on the deck of a boat, 
gasping their last breaths in a farting sound, it may be one more reason that 
this trip may not be for you, but it was definitely an interesting thing to 
see. 

> 
>  
> 
> Offshore Itinerary: Our initial strategy while birding was to cruise several 
of the canyons along the continental shelf, some 25-45 km offshore. We had a 
GPS with us, so went on Google earth the night before departure and entered the 
coordinates for several points along each canyon (posted below). Since the 
canyons are just as good for fishing as for birding, it was mutually beneficial 
to visit them. We spent most of the first day getting to the first canyon, 
getting there around 3:30pm. We spent the evening and night going through its 
center. When we woke up the next morning, we had drifted outside the canyon. 
The crew cleaned up breakfast, threw some guts over the side (good for 
birds—see below), and went to sleep. We then proceeded to spend 8am-2:30pm 
sitting in the same spot. For the first hour or so this continued to be 
productive for birds, but activity quickly petered out. Wishing to respect the 
crew that had so kindly smuggled us offshore, we didn’t nag them to go 
somewhere else, but waited for them to start doing their routine again. After a 
long afternoon of birding and sleeping on the deck, the crew finally emerged. 
Shortly after, we spotted another small boat from Lomas, that appeared to be 
loaded down with fish. Our crew radio’d theirs, to find out where they’d been, 
and soon we were moving again—working south along the shelf, but away from the 
other canyons we’d hoped to visit. Still, we were in deep water, and we found 
some good birds anyway. We got to their other fishing spot after dark, and 
after they didn’t have much success fishing, headed back to port, arriving at 
4:30 on the 29th. 

> 
> We did buy some canned sardines and vegetable oil, which we combined and let 
sit in the sun for a few hours to use for chum. Though this worked in short 
bouts, explaining to the concept of moving upwind and drifting with the chum 
was difficult to explain to the crew, so when we did pick up birds (only 
Elliot’s and Wedge-rumped Storm-petrels and White-chinned Petrel came in), we 
couldn’t stay on them for long. The blood and guts the crew accumulated and 
threw off the boat was much more worthwhile. 

> 
>  
> 
> Birding: Our trip started with us sitting on the boat in port for two hours 
as we got ready to go. Though definitely a bit frustrating, we were able to 
pick up all the inshore guano birds, including Red-legged Cormorant 
(Phalacrocorax gaimardi) and Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti). A decent 
sized flock of Grey Gull (Leucophaeus modestus) took off from the beach across 
the bay, and flew by at relatively close range. The harbor was also good for 
rocky coast, with a few Blackish Oystercatcher (Haematopus ater), Surfbird 
(Aphriza virgata), Whimbrel (Numenius phaeopus) and Surf Cincldoes (Cinclodes 
taczanowskii). Terns were moving as well, including Elegant (Thalasseus 
elegans), Royal, (T. maximus), and Peruvian (Sternula lorata). 

> 
> Finally getting going at around 10:30, we started hitting Peruvian Diving 
Petrels (Pelecanoides garnotii) about 1km out, at first in pairs, but found 
several rafts of 2-10 individuals around the shoals 5-6km from shore, finishing 
with a total of 52. Lots of cormorants and pelicans, some Peruvian Terns and 
five Humboldt Penguin were present as well in this area, and we had our first 
Sooty Shearwater (Puffinus griseus) 3km out. Our complete inshore checklist can 
be seen here: 

> 
> http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S16115664
> 
> From 6-16 km offshore, we started running into White-chinned Petrels 
(Procellaria aequinoctialis), the bulk of our Sooty Shearwaters, and an 
immature Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrina) bombing back towards shore. Further 
out, Pink-footed Shearwaters (Puffinus creapotus) began to join the mix as 
well. Other highlights in this zone included Red Phalarope (Phalaropus 
fulicarius), and a Parasitic Jaeger (Stercorarius parasiticus). 

> 
> By the time we got 20km out, the wind began to pickup, and we had our first 
Albatrosses and Storm-petrels among the previously mentioned species. For the 
rest of the afternoon/evening we totaled 9 Thalassarche albatross, only three 
of which were close enough to ID as Salvin’s (T. salvini). Elliot’s 
Storm-petrel (Oceanites gracilis) began to appear at low density here as well. 
At 25 km, we caught glimpses of a few Cook’s Petrels (Pterodroma cookii). These 
birds were in active molt, contradicting both the molt timing, and expected 
date of occurrence described in Birds of Peru (Schulenberg et al. 2007). After 
discussion with experts, we concluded that these were immature or non-breeding 
birds from the Codfish Island population of Cook’s that stayed in the 
productive waters of the Humboldt instead of returning to New Zealand. This 
species proved to be the most common Procellariid far offshore (>35km), even 
outnumbering White-chinned petrel and Pink-footed Shearwater. 

> 
> We arrived at the center of the first canyon (32km offshore) at around 
4:30pm, greeted by a distant flyby Chilean Skua (Stercorarius chilensis). We 
told the crew to stop for a bit so we could try chumming, which they agreed to. 
We dumped some of our sardine/veggie oil concoction in the water and waited. By 
about five minutes we had drifted about 50 meters from the slick, but could 
still see a White-chinned Petrel and Elliot’s Storm-petrels coming into it. 
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the trip was when a Galapagos Petrel 
(Pterodroma phaeogypia) appeared 10 meters away from the boat, briefly checking 
us (and possibly the chum) out before heading further out to sea. Unfortunately 
we didn’t get any photos of this beautiful and close bird, but did obtain some 
for another Galapagos Petrel seen the next day. Despite much searching in the 
literature on tubenoses and the birds of Peru, I couldn’t find any records this 
far south of this species. 

> 
> Continuing down the Canyon in the evening continued to be very productive, 
with a few more distant Thalassarche, and Cook’s Petrels, more Pink-footed 
Shearwaters, White-chinned Petrel, and Elliot’s Storm-Petrels. Around 5pm we 
found our first Black/Markham’s Storm-petrel (unfortunately we never found any 
conclusive Markham’s), and at dusk caught sight of our long-anticipated 
Hornby’s Storm-petrels (Oceanodroma hornbyi). The day ended with a 
basic-plumaged Swallow-tailed Gull (Creagrus furcatus) following our light 
after sunset. Even at night the birding continued, with un-identified 
Storm-petrels making quick passes by the boat, and we were woken up by the crew 
when a Wedge-rumped Storm-petrel (Oceanodroma tethys) landed on the boat, 
allowing us to examine it in the hand before release. Our offshore checklist 
for the first day can be found here: 
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S16115611 

> 
> We awoke the next morning just before sunrise to a great Storm-petrel show. 
As the crew cleaned up the deck there, we watched a slow, steady stream of 
Hornby’s Storm-petrels moving from north-south, often passing within 10 m of 
the boat. By the time there was significant daylight, the stream had stopped, 
but we counted 45 individuals. Many Elliot’s and Wedge-rumped Storm-petrels 
passed the boat, as well as another bird we were able to ID as a Black 
Storm-petrel (Oceanodroma melania)—a species south of its mapped range in the 
field guide. In this early morning, relatively stationary period, other 
highlights included a few more Cook’s Petrels, Peruvian and Black (Chlidonias 
niger) Terns, a distant Swallow-tailed Gull and a Chilean Skua flyby. 

> 
> At this point (now about 7:30 am), the crew threw a bucket of squid guts 
overboard. Wedge-rumped and Elliot’s storm-petrels were the first to show up, 
followed by a White-chinned Petrel, but before long two of our three Buller’s 
Albatross for the day came in, separately. The albatross hung around and 
squabbled over the chum for at least 20 or 30 minutes before continuing on 
their way. While this was going on, two Long-tailed Jaegers (Sterocorarius 
longicaudus) flew by distantly. Once the Buller’s had moved on, this opened the 
doors for other scavengers to come in, and another Chilean Skua—this one very 
obliging—fed in the guts for another half hour. No sooner than it took off, a 
Parasitic Jaeger came and harassed the storm-petrels for a little while. 
Another Buller’s Albatross came in as well. 

> 
> Before we knew it was 9am, and bird activity was beginning to die off. 
Between intermittent napping, the late morning and early afternoon produced two 
more Long-tailed Jaegers, a distant Salvin’s Albatross, and a single Sooty 
Shearwater, and several Elliot’s Storm-petrels. 

> 
> Finally, by 2:30, we were on the move again, and with the increasing 
afternoon wind, picking up more birds. A Thalassarche made a relatively close 
pass, and though initially identified as a Salvin’s, later input on photos of 
the bird revised the ID to a Chatham Albatross (T. eremita) based on the extent 
of a dark hood and a yellowish-green bill. A few more Cook’s petrels, Sooty and 
Pink-footed Shearwaters put in some appearances too, plus another Black 
Storm-petrel Then I spotted a medium-sized, dark compact petrel with obvious 
white flashes at the base of its primaries—a Kermadec Petrel (Pterodroma 
neglecta)! Though this individual went unphotographed, we saw two more dark 
morph Kermadecs over the course of the next hour and a half, obtaining the 
first photographs of this species in Peru. According to the crew and the GPS, 
we had moved far enough offshore to be in warmer water (45km) so it was nice to 
see this reflected in the bird community! 

> 
> Soon the sun was starting to set, and more Elliot’s, Wedge-rumped, and a 
couple Black Storm-petrels began to emerge again, and we spotted another 
Salvin’s albatross. Larids were shifting about too, featuring several Peruvian, 
and a flock of 17 Black Terns, and our last Swallow-tailed Gull. Seeing more 
Cook’s Petrels provided us with the great opportunity to study their molt and 
plumage variation in different lightings. We were thrilled to come across 
another Galapagos Petrel, this one taking its time foraging in bouts of 
soaring, fluttering, and dropping on the water, allowing for some useable 
photos. The great day ended with the dusk parade of Storm-petrels, including 6 
more Hornby’s. An uneventful night of fishing got as back to shore by 4:30am.

Hi Gunnar the dates for BLSW
in Peru during migration from wintering grounds back to their breeding grounds
in Colorado are approximately between April 24 to May 22 and the
southern migration dates from breeding grounds to wintering grounds we were not
able to map but we plotted Longitude across time to see approximately when the
BLSW arrived to their wintering grounds and those dates were approximately
September 27 to October 13.

Hola Gunnar las fechas para Vencejo Negro (BLSW) en Perú durante migración
desde las áreas de invierno hasta sus áreas de anidamiento en Colorado son 
aproximadamente 

entre Abril 24 y Mayo 22 y las fechas de migración de sur desde su áreas de
anidamiento a sus áreas de invierno no pudimos mapearlos pero trazamos 
Longitud 

a lo largo de las fechas para ver aproximadamente cuando BLSW llegaron a sus 
áreas 

de invierno y esas fechas eran aproximadamente de Septiembre 27 a Octubre 13.

Espero que esto sea útil para tal vez documentar esta especie en el
Peru.

Por encargo de la DGFFS me permito comunicarles que pronto culminara la fase de 
aportes al Reglamento de  la Ley Forestal y de Fauna Silvestre. Con mucho de 
ustedes y tras largo esfuerzo hemos desarrollado las bases para lograr tener 
por primera vez una lista de ecosistemas frágiles en el Perú. (son 11 
reconocidos por el MINAGRI /DGFFS) hasta el momento y esperamos continuar con 
los que tenemos pendientes en Piura Cusco, Ancash, Tacna, San Martin, Loreto y 
Madre de Dios. 

 
En tal sentido alcanzo los temas que hemos analizado, y sugerencias que pueden 
ser enviadas a la DGFFS para ser incluidas en el Reglamento que por primera vez 
incluirá si sus aportes lo consolidan, el desarrollo especifico de la gestión 
de los ecosistemas frágiles entre los que se encuentran: 

 
Manglares, estuarios,humedales costeros, albuferas, deltas, oasis, pantanos, 
lagos, lagunas, bofedales, manantiales, puquios, turberas, humedales de 
páramos, humedales cársticos, lagos y lagunas amazónicas, complejos de 
orillares, cársticos, amazónicos, pantanos amazónicos (aguajales, renacales, 
pungales, pantanos mixtos de palmeras, pantanos herbáceos, pantanos 
arbustivos), bosques de tahuampa, sabana inundable de palmeras, varillales 
húmedos.Lomas costeras, bosques relictos de queñoales,entre otros. 

   
Estoy seguro que ustedes tienen aportes adicionales y sumamente valiosos pero 
si no se alcanzan antes de febrero a esta Direccion General mediante el link

Hi All

I am not sure that age and showing up along the coast is related. All 
Red-necked Phalaropes I have seen in coastal estuaries/saltpans have been 
adults and usually early on during the migration when they first start to come 
here in Ecuador. In fact, I have never seen a juvenile, at least not in that 
plumage here, but I have only seen less than 100, mostly at Salinas on the 
Santa Elena peninsula. Here is an example of 
that http://www.pbase.com/ahlman/image/128116295 


I recently organized a pelagic off Salinas (3 january) and we saw about 25 
Phalaropes of both species, mostly Red Phalarope. 


Seriously interesting migration pattern!!

Kind regards
Roger Ahlman

Javier, 
 
In North America most of the RN Phalaropes migrating over land, or along the 
coast are young birds at least in fall. So age is more likely the factor that 
is involved in your Peruvian coastal sightings. Note that RN Phalarope does not 
regularly reach Chile, there are few good records of the species even in the 
northernmost part of the country. So the bulk stay in Ecuador-Peru.

Actually, my question referred only to the ones in the coast itself, as the 
Red-necked Phalarope is supposed to be a migratory off shore species. However, 
they are sometimes recorded in coastal wetlands. So, would it be a crazy idea 
that the >million Neartic Red-necked Phalaropes are the ones migrating to off 
shore Peru and Chile, and the few landing in the coastal wetlands are the ones 
from Scotland and maybe other European populations? The ones landing in the 
coast may mean a different migratory route than the offshore birds. Possible?

Hi Dan no these locations are from the 1st set of
geolocators that were published in the paper originating from Colorado.  
Indeed geolocator error is difficult to 

assess and it would be difficult to accept as a new species however if we look
at the map we can see that there are some buffers that are mostly within the
boundary of Peru and one buffer is completely within the country boundary.  
This indicates a high probability of the 

species being present but it would be nice to see a more definitive
pattern.  I sent this map out to one of
the CRAP members but it seems like he didn’t share it with everyone.  
Thanks for the update on the possible BLSW sighting.  The purpose of sending 
the map was to help 

birders get an idea of where there may be BLSW so they could hopefully get
documentation.
 
Hola Dan
estas ubicaciones son del primer conjunto de geolocalizadores publicadas en el 
artículo 

científico originando de Colorado.  En
efecto error de los geolocalizadores son difíciles de evaluar y sería 
difícil aceptar 

como una nueva especie sin embargo si miramos el mapa podemos ver que hay
algunas áreas de amortiguamiento que están casi completamente dentro de la
frontera del Perú y hay un área de amortiguamiento que está completamente
dentro de la frontera.  Esto indica que
hay una alta probabilidad que esta especie está presente pero sería bueno 
poder 

tener un patrón más definitivo.  Mande
este mapa a unos de los miembros de CRAP pero parece que no lo compartieron con
todos.
Gracias por
la actualización del posible avistamiento del Vencejo Negro.  El propósito 
del mapa era para que pajareros 

puedan tener una idea donde podrían ver un Vencejo Negro y talvez documentar 
el 

avistamiento.

Saludos

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the response. Are these newer geolocator data than those that were 
published a few years ago? Will these be published soon? How many birds have 
been recovered with geolocator data at this point? Are they all from Colorado, 
or from other breeding areas?

Javier, 

 

In North America most of the RN Phalaropes migrating over land, or along the
coast are young birds at least in fall. So age is more likely the factor
that is involved in your Peruvian coastal sightings. Note that RN Phalarope
does not regularly reach Chile, there are few good records of the species
even in the northernmost part of the country. So the bulk stay in
Ecuador-Peru. 

 

Saludos, 

 

Alvaro

Actually, my question referred only to the ones in the coast itself, as the
Red-necked Phalarope is supposed to be a migratory off shore species.
However, they are sometimes recorded in coastal wetlands. So, would it be a
crazy idea that the >million Neartic Red-necked Phalaropes are the ones
migrating to off shore Peru and Chile, and the few landing in the coastal
wetlands are the ones from Scotland and maybe other European populations?
The ones landing in the coast may mean a different migratory route than the
offshore birds. Possible?

  There are also huge populations in North America, and these go by the
thousands off the West Coast of North America. So even if a large number of
European birds are in Peru, there are also hundreds of thousands of them
from North America. Likely the North American ones are the prevalent ones?
But who really knows.

For what it is worth, the National Geographic Birds of North American 
shows eastern (northern Quebec) migration down the east coast. Greenland 
may actually be nearer the western part of Canada, Iceland near 
Greenland, Scotland near Iceland. One can imagine a slow expansion of 
the western races across to Scotland while retaining their western 
migration route.

Birds of Brazil does not have Red-necked Phalarope. Other South American 
bird books show them occurring from Uruguay south on the Atlantic. West 
Indies records them, presumably the eastern races. Perhaps once they get 
to the Caribbean they jump across Brazil? Or perhaps they are present in 
migration but not observed.

  I understand your point, the upwelling off Peru-Chile is astounding. But
the coast from S Brazil southward is much richer than one would expect given
that it is on the east side of a continent. There are areas of upwelling,
although local in extent. But there is also an incredible amount of
turbulence, some of it with associated upwelling, created by boundary
currents (Brazil current heading south, and Malvinas current heading north).
The continental shelf is way out there in Patagonia, but this is where many
Atlantic Long-tailed Jaegers winter, and I had assumed that this would also
be the area where phalaropes might be…but perhaps not? This paper is a good
one on defining some of the richer zones of the ocean in South America: 

 

http://ceoas.oregonstate.edu/people/files/matano/workshop/READING/Biology/AC
HA2004.pdf

 

On a related point, are there many Red Phalaropes that remain off Peru in
Dec – Feb ? In Valparaiso, Chile they are abundant in Oct – Nov, then they
are essentially absent through Feb. It suggest that they are wintering well
to the south.

Alvaro

This story fascinated me ... 

It was previously assumed that UK birds (about breeding 32 pairs!) wintered
in the Arabian sea, as do the north-eastern European populations (estimated
c. 0.5-1 million birds). It seems likely that the small Shetland population
has colonised through westward spring migration from the Greenland and
Iceland breeding grounds, using the prevailing westerly winds in the
northern Atlantic, and form part of the Nearctic population (estimated 2
million birds).  If so UK origin birds would only be a very tiny fraction of
the wintering population off Peru. A third population breeding in Siberia
apparently winters in the East Indies (off Philippines and New Guinea).

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the response. Are these newer geolocator data than those that were 
published a few years ago? Will these be published soon? How many birds have 
been recovered with geolocator data at this point? Are they all from Colorado, 
or from other breeding areas? 


The Peruvian Records Committee did not accept Black Swift to the Peruvian list 
based on the published information because of concerns of error with geolocator 
data, but we certainly remain open to the idea that the species is present in 
Peru. Unfortunately, the photo reported as a Black Swift in late 2012 from the

En cuanto a
los datos de geolocalizador del Vencejo Negro queria compartir algunos mapas
que muestran las localidades de los geolocalizadores que cayeron dentro del
Peru.  Tambien hice un mapa que muestra Tambopata
en donde ha abido un possible avistamiento del Vencejo Negro con las
localidades de los geolocalizadores superpuestos.

Pense que
estas mapas serian de interés para pajareros que puedan estar cerca de algunas
de estas áreas durante la migración.

With regards to the Black Swift (BLSW) geolocator data I
wanted to share a couple of maps that show the locations from the geolocator
dataset that fell within Peru.  I also
made a map that shows Tambopata where there was a possible BLSW sighting with
geolocator locations overlaid.

I thought that these maps would be of interest for birders
that may be near some of these areas during migration.

Cypseloides niger Black Swift

 In August 2009, four individuals of C. niger were captured at a nesting site 
in Colorado, USA, and saddled with photo-geolocator devices which are designed 
to use day/night cycles to estimate the lat/long of the target. Of these four 
individuals, three were recaptured at the same nesting site in 2010, and the 
data from the geolocators were uploaded. The data were published in Beason et 
al (2012), and showed that these individuals spent the Boreal winter in western 
Amazonian Brazil, and there was a suggestion that their north-bound migration 
route may have taken them over the northeast corner of Peru. South-bound 
migration routes could not be ascertained due to the autumnal equinox causing 
problems. The geolocators’ information is prone to a certain amount of error, 
however, as was outlined by Beason et al (2012), and the accuracy of the 
migration routes published is not high enough to be certain that these 
individuals did, indeed, cross Peruvian airspace on their way to and from their 
wintering grounds in Brazil. Given that there is presently no corroborating 
evidence of the presence of the species in Peru, and that the sample size used 
in this publication is so small, we wish to wait until more information of 
higher accuracy is available before we vote the species onto the Peruvian list. 
We wish to make it clear, however, that we believe the bird probably is 
regularly present in Peru as a migrant or non-breeder, it simply remains 
undetected as such at present. 


 

Votes were: 4 Yes 2 No, 5 votes outstanding. [ The species was not added to the 
Peru list.]

Hi Fabrice,

 

I don't know how this slipped by me before, but I just went through the photos 
of the swifts about which you were talking, and I think the two you posted were 
Spot-fronted Swifts (Cypseloides cherriei)! Do you still have information about 
these? Are there more photos that you can share? This is a new species for 
Peru! 


 

Best,

Dan
