Lima, Peru.

Posted Friday 31st May 2013 at 03:39 by Rick and Elis
Slightly disappointing start to our trip to Peru when we dipped on Peruvian Thick-knee, we did manage to open our Peruvian wader account though with some old favourites; American Oystercatcher and Killdeer, plus some small groups of Hudsonian Whimbrels.
We are being looked after our good friend Renzo Zeppelli during our stay in Peru. Renzo is a fantastic bird guide and knows many places off the beaten track that visiting guides are not be aware of, being local his knowledge of the birdlife...

'Western' and 'Eastern' Willet? What's that all about?

Posted Monday 13th May 2013 at 09:50 by Rick and Elis
Willet Tringa semipalmata. Formerly in a genus of it's own Catoptrophorus and originally described as Scolopax semipalmata by Gmelin in 1789.
Willet has traditionally been considered a single species and indeed still is officially and by most people. The fact that the two subspecies were possibly contenders for splitting came to my notice when Elis and I found the first documented record of the species in the state of São Paulo. During research for the article that we wrote about the event...
