Pantanos de Villa, Lima 1
Pantanos de Villa in Lima is a good place to start or end a birding trip in Peru. You can see many herons, gulls and ducks in the lagoons and during the migration a lot of shorebirds as well. I spent most of the time at Mar Villa, the lagoons close to the shore, during my visit 09. November. During the return one of the park guards kindly shoved me a place were several Peruvian Thick-Knee rested. These birds are mostly active during nighttime.
