The next hours we will spend visiting some specific places for endemic birds, or it will also depend on which probable species we are missing time in order we get to see them or for taking pictures of any bird we’d like, because our local guide knows the location of this endemics species with good possibilities to see them.

In the afternoon we set up to Cusco, but before to get the city, we will visit the Lucre lagoon.
