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.

The Blue-fronted Parrotlet (Touit dilectissimus) is also known as the Red-winged Parrotlet (but see below). It is a parrot in N. South America from E. Panama down the west coastal Andes to Peru, on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Usually found in humid, wet, and cloud forest from 800-1600m, it is occasionally spotted as low as 100m. Little known, as it is hard to see in the canopy where it usually lives and is most often seen while flying over the canopy. photo by Nick Athenas
