.. or the Isla de los Pájaros, one of the most unusual and surreal environments I’ve ever experienced.
Located in the mangrove of Puerto Pizarro Bay in northern Peru, about 13 kilometers north of Tumbes and not far from the border with Ecuador, the Island is home to thousands of birds, some 140 resident and migratory species. Most common on the island are frigatebirds (above), ibises and Great White Egrets. It’s mating season, which means that all the male frigatebirds are puffing out their chests hoping to impress the ladies. Check it out!
