REFORESTATION AND BIRD OBSEVATORY PROJECT

Through these projects we are seeking to restore habitats through reforestation with native plant species. We hope our work will create ideal conditions for the repopulation of birds and restore habitat over the short- and long-term.

Our initiative is in two parts:

A reforestation project to restore a significant area that has been damaged in the past, using native tree species.

The creation of a Bearded Mountaineer observatory, where the provision of feeders for hummingbirds and other bird species will make it easy for visitors to observe High Andean birds.

Below we explain the first project:

HUMMINGBIRD AND BIRDS OBSERVATORY PROJECT HUAMBUTIO AREA

BEARDER MOUNTAINEER
BARBUDO MONTAÑEZ

INTRODUCTION:

Installing bird and hummingbird feeders at the site will help provide additional foraging opportunities, as well as giving visitors the opportunity to experience and learn about the birds of the Inter-Andean Valley. The reforestation of the surrounding area with native shrubs, fruit-bearing trees and flowers will also be undertaken to enhance the area for birds.

The Bearded Mountaineer Oreonympha nobilis is a species of hummingbird in the family Trochilidae, which is endemic to (found only in) Peru. It is found in high-altitude valleys in the south-central Andes, from 2,700 to 3,900 m (8,900 to 12,800 ft).

There are two subspecies recognised, the more widespread nobilis and the restricted albolimbata. The Bearded Mountaineer is found in the Huacarpay Wetlands close to the site for the proposed observatory. Huambutio is a natural corridor between the southern-most part of Cusco Valley and the beginning of the Sacred Valley and Urubamba River. The Bearded Mountaineer can be found in scrubland habitat in this area and often visits tobacco plants Nicotiana sp. along roadsides.

LAND AND DIMENSIONS OF THE AREA TO DEVELOP THE PROJECT

The land is very close to the Huacarpay wetland, which is only 30 minutes from the city of Cusco, in the area known as Huambutio.

Conservation Benefits

We will build the feeders using recyclable materials, and will carry out some virtual environmental education talks during the development of the project, to publicise the benefits of conserving the site. Attracting different species of birds to the site will also give us the opportunity to get to know their ecology better.

The project will help to demonstrate the value of the natural environment to local people, and we hope it will bring money to the local area through wildlife tourism, as well as giving local people the opportunity to learn more about nature.

Map and location:

  • HUAMBUTIO
  • 3270 Meters above sea level or 10728 feet

Purpose of the project:

  • To provide a site that offers visitors an easy way to watch and enjoy a range of different bird species.
  • To provide facilities for visitors including toilets, and shaded seating areas.
  • Once completed, we will be able to provide talks and events on environmental education and bird conservation at the site.
  • To enhance the area for birds by restoring native vegetation that will provide them with foraging and nesting opportunities.
  • The project is reliant upon donations, which can be made by bank transfer or PayPal
