Bird Bolivia — Birding in the Altiplano area

La Paz, the highest capital city in the world, lies at 3,636m (11,929ft) in a 5 km-wide canyon below the snow-capped Illimani (6,402m/21,004ft). White-tipped Plantcutter is fairly common in gardens in lower parts of the city. Streak-throated Canastero and Peruvian Sierra-Finch occur at the nearby Valley of the Moon. Our acclimatation day in the Royal Range of the Andes may take us places where good birds can be seen such as the endemic Black-hooded Sunbeam, Scaled Metaltail, Stripe-headed Antpitta, White-browed Conebill, White-eared Solitaire, and Short-tailed Finch.

The road south from La Paz to Oruro crosses the puna and the scruffy town of Oruro (3,700m/12,139ft), near lake Uru-Uru where, when the water levels are suitable. Towards Uyuni, the area claims for nature adventure over the Altiplano and in the mountains of southern Bolivia and the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve, at an average of 3,600 meters above sea level. This is a region of singular interest, for its scenery and terrain as well as its ecology, for those explorers who wish to experience some very peculiar aspects of nature, some of which exist solely in this region of the world.
