And mine - largely because my son is a bird guide in Peru, I have been there 
three times. As Stuart suggests, it can indeed be a blur - many of my 750 or so 
species from there are pretty foggy in my memory! But others remain startlingly 
clear, and while one is there the spectacular appearance of many species, their 
sounds, their behaviours, and the general environment can be stunning - e.g. an 
Andean Condor soaring over snow-capped mountains under perfect blue skies way 
above the treeline! I guess it depends why one goes birding, and perhaps there 
are as many reasons for this as there are birders.

  Hello all.  I just had to add my two cents.  Peru is right up there
with the best for fantastic birding.  I would go again and again.
Loved every minute of it.  Yes, a good learning curve but wonderful.
