Paracas Birding Afternoon 2

South of Paracas

I hired a bike this afternoon and went south from the main beach at Paracas. This is where all the rich people live. All along the beach. I was searching for some flamencos but when I did find them they were miles away on the beach in a restricted area and I could not get near them.
