New trip opportunity for Young Birders

Over the past few weeks, I've been talking with Gunnar Engblom of Kolibri Expeditions about doing a Young Birders budget tour to Manu or Carpish in southern Peru.  After bouncing the idea off of me and my fellow Young Birder (YB) Kai Reed, Gunnar came up with the following: 
An 8 day trip to either Manu or Carpish/Satipo Rd. Each trip would cost a mere $699/person. That's a crazy low price for a trip to Peru. In many cases, the airfare would cost more. 

You can read more about it on Gunnar's blog: 

I was able to provide him with the photo at the top of the post. It is from last summer's Camp Chiricahua. Take a look! You may recognize someone! 

This is an awesome opportunity to bird Peru for practically nothing, compared to regular prices. There may also be some chance that these trips will be offered in coming years as well. 
Check it out!!  Peru is calling!
