PERU 2011: The Coast
|Crossing the dunes|
|Courting Great Grebes|
A pair of Great Grebes courted in one of the small ponds amid the dunes. Cinnamon Teal and Andean Coots were also found. The marshes were also home to Many-colored Rush-tyrants and Wren-like Rush-birds.
Coastal Miners were seen digging in the sand while the Surf Cinclodes preferred the rocky shorelines. From the rocky shorelines we also enjoyed Humboldt Penguins, Red-legged and Neotropic Cormorants, Inca Terns, Peruvian Pelicans and a wonderful surprise… a Southern Giant Petrel!
