Peru managed to become the site, from which most bird species could be watched, at Global Big Day, a contest organized by eBird and the University of Cornell, with the aim of promoting birdwatching at an international level.
The results put the Peru on the first position after some 1,177 species were registered, being followed by Brazil (1,099), Colombia (831) and the US (731).
The deadline to submit lists containing the birds watched in a period of time was due on May 12 this year.
The news has put the county in the spotlight, since it reveals the potential to attract more tourists interested in such activities.
The Peruvian regions, which concentrate most sightings are, Madre de Dios (440 species) and Cusco (428 species).
To date, the victory will be made official by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
