Birding Chile

Fabulous birding along The Andes Range

15 days / 14 nights

Chile is a country with a unique geography. A trip along the Andes range will take us from sea level to the highest peaks, and from the lush subantarctic rainforests to the dry valleys of the north. The coasts of the Central Region hold seabirds such as Humboldt Penguin, Red-legged Cormorant and the beautiful Inca Tern. A pelagic trip will reward you with a myriad of albatrosses and petrels. Not far from the capital of Santiago, areas of Chaparral (an endemic biome) hide specialities such as White-throated Tapaculo, Moustached Turca and Dusky-tailed Canastero.

The unobtrusive Chilean Tinamou may also be seen. Climbing up to the barren landscapes of the Andes, birds to be searched for are Diademed Sandpiper-Plover, Creamy-rumped Miner, Crag Chilia, Greater Yellow-Finch and an array of Ground- Tyrants. The humid Valdivian Forests have aberrant-looking species like Des Murs’ Wiretail, and Black-throated Huet-huet, as well as Chucao Tapaculo, Chilean Pigeon and Rufous-legged Owl. In the deserts and dry valleys of the north key species to be looked for are two special hummers, the Chilean Woodstar and Peruvian Sheartail, as well as Peruvian Meadowlark, Peruvian Thick-knee, Tamarugo Conebill and Dark-winged Canastero. A special place to bird are the high-Andean lakes where hundreds of coots and flamingoes may be seen, as well as a host of species named “Andean”, such as the Negrito, a Flicker, a Goose, a Gull and a Swallow.
