Barry Walker was born near Manchester, England, and started bird watching at the age of 13. After first pursuing this interest all over Europe and the Middle East, he switched his attention to the Neotropics and has since gained extensive birding experience in Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Bolivia and – especially – Peru, where he has now lived for over 25 years. Barry has participated in many ornithological expeditions and contributed to many publications concerning Peruvian birds, and is the author of the well received book A Field Guide to the Birds of Machu Picchu and the Cuzco area, Peru. He has also visited every corner of the country as a trekking and natural history guide, and has been leading bird tours for private groups and bird tour companies for the last 15 years. Barry lives in Cusco and is married with a 10-year-old daughter. His wife Rosario is owner of Manu Expeditions, a pioneer eco-tour operator in Manu specializing in natural history, horse riding and cultural trips. Barry also occupies the post of British Consul in Cusco and received an MBE in the 2004 Queen’s New Years Honours list.
