Pacific Parrolet (Forpus coelestis)

Also known as Lesson’s Parrotlet or the Celestial Parrotlet, the pacific parrotlet is a species of small Neotropical Parrot (Arinae) which occurs in Ecuador and Peru. Pacific parrotlets typically inhabit subtropical and tropical moist lowland forests, dry shrubland, and heavily degraded former forests. Like other parrots Pacific parrotlets will usually form small flocks as they forage for fruits and grasses.

Curl-crested Aracari 
 Pteroglossus beauharnaesii (Piciformes - Ramphastidae), a stunning species of toucan, better known as Curl-crested Aracari, found in Bolivia, Brazil and Peru.
Pteroglossus beauharnaesii is one of the more spectacularly plumaged aracari, and one of the more stranger looking birds. Unlike any other aracari, or any other bird, it has modified head feathers that resemble shiny black pieces of plastic. It is from these modified feathers that this species gets its name.
Apart from the bizarre head ornamentation, the Curl-crested Aracari is a quite pretty toucan, with a red back, yellow underparts with a single red breast ban, and a quite ornately patterned, multicolored bill.

The Long-whiskered Owlet (Xenoglaux loweryi) is a tiny owl that is endemic to a small area in the Andean mountains in Amazonas and San Martín in northern Peru. 
Due to its rarity, restricted habitat, and ongoing deforestation within its tiny range, it is currently considered endangered by BirdLife International. It is estimated that the total population is between 250 and 1000 individuals. The recently established Area de Conservación Privada Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva protects an important site for the owlet and other species restricted to this region, including Johnson’s Tody-Tyrant, Royal Sunangel, and Ochre-fronted Antpitta.
