Relatively little is known about the longevity of free-living landbirds, especially in the tropics. We used mark-recapture data for birds originally banded in 2005 and 2006, and later recaptured between 2011 and 2016, to estimate minimum longevity for 20 species from southeastern Peru. The oldest recorded longevity was 10 years, 6 months for a Black-billed Treehunter (Thripadectes melanorhynchus). Another notable record was for a Russet-crowned Warbler (Myiothlypis coronata; 9 years, 2 months). Our estimated minimum longevity records generally reflect the findings of other researchers, indicating that tropical birds are often markedly site faithful and long-lived.
