Tan sólo escuchadas


When I made the rules of my list at the end of December last year I gave myself a grave handicap: I could only count species which I had seen. In Amazonia, of course, many birds are to be heard and not seen; but rules are rules and such species don't count. In an idle airport moment, however, I've come up with a list of birds I heard in the Amazon and Andean forests of Peru this month but which this time I didn't see. Almost certainly there are others which will emerge when I write the report of our Peruvian trip but these are the species I can remember for now.
