Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes

The Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Peruvian Seaside Cinclodes (right) is shaped and colored rather like a drab starling but acts like a rocky shorebird as it forages among mussels exposed by low tide. Its cousin, the Bar-winged Cinclodes (below) hunts on the ground near tree-line, hopping along small rivulets at 11,000' elevation. Many furnarids are hard to see, and harder still to photograph, including numerous spinetails, canasteros, reedhaunters, and treerunners. More
