I am back! I hope you all are enjoying my wildlife pictures from Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Brazil Atlantic forests.

Peru is a country well-known for Machu Picchu and, trust me, it is every bit as amazing as they say it is! The scale, the grandeur, and the architecture are marvelous experience to see. But since you all know me, you won't be surprised when I tell you that that was my last day plan! My entire Peru tour was full of what I love to do―photographing birds.

Peru is where photographers and bird watchers aspire to go. It is, after all, a country with the most diverse bird species and scenic views that have worldwide photographers stunned. It is a must-visit on every bird photographer's bucket list. Peru is a birder’s paradise with the most beautiful avian treasury in the world.

Peru is home to 20% of the world's total bird species, along with the highest number of endemics in the world! And the count increases every day. It is abundant with so many beautiful destinations, and apart from the well-known heritage site Machu Picchu, I had to show you the birds the country boasts of!

All photos were taken with my trusted Canon 1D X Mark II and 600 mm.

Enjoy and let me know what you think! You can email me at info@supreetsahoo.com for any questions.

Cheers, and stay safe!

Peru must have some really vicious flowers to subdue.

I just looked it up because I was curious and giant hummingbirds have an approximate wingspan of 21.5 cm (8.5 in), and length of 23 cm (9.1 in). So still not that big, maybe like the size of your hand-ish, but really big for a hummingbird! I'm thinking it was easier to get the picture with the wings spread and tail flared without blurring because since she's larger she can't beat her wings as fast.
