I finished off my trip to Ite with a walk on the beach and to some rocky areas.







Playing catch me if you can with the breaking waves was a small group of Sanderling





While over the waves was a steady procession of Peruvian Pelican



Neotropic Cormorant



and Peruvian Booby



On and over the rocks were more Peruvian Pelican and Peruvian Booby





and Red-legged Cormorant





Not to be outdone 4 species of gull put in an appearance

Andean Gull , adults in breeding and transitional plumage





Belcher's Gull adult and 1st-year bird





our familiar Grey-headed Gull, this one a juvenile





and finally, a juvenile Kelp Gull



The Turkey Vultures get everywhere

Awesome Neil!

Thanks for posting.

When you bird in another country it is almost like being re-incarnated and having another chance at life (getting lifers).
