Birding Tour Huacarpay Lagoon: Half Day

Huacarpay Lagoon (3,000 m.a.s.l) is the best spot for sighting the main bird species in Cusco region. The lake, with its calm waters, sprawling totora clumps and flooded areas, is overlooked by hills studded with cactus and native trees (Schinus molle). It concentrates more than fifty resident species of birds; around twenty five migratory and twenty occasional birds with specific spots.

The highlight of this swamp is the some endemics birds like Bearded mountaineer, Rusty-fronted Canastero, Chestnut-breasted Mountain-finch, others one more difficult to spot, like the Atreak-fronted Thornbird.  And of course we can observe many lagoon birds and others surrounds this area.
