Enchanting Ecuador – Birding the Andes to the Amazon
After most participants have birded Northwest Ecuador, they yearn to return for more. Many will choose birding sites and lodges east of Quito for their return trip to Ecuador. Many experienced world birders love to visit eastern Ecuador as the lodges are a great value and the birding is always productive, with many species seen each day and always new life birds to be found. These trips are filled with tanagers, hummingbirds and a number of primarily Amazonian species such as: White-capped Tanager, Paradise Tanager, Saffron-crowned Tanager, Chestnut-breasted Chlorophonia, Golden-collared Honeycreeper, Peruvian Racket-tail, Napo Sabrewing, Gould's Jewelfront, King Vulture, Golden-collared Toucanet, and more.
These trips are well planned to focus on bird watching. With excellent guides, we can expect to see over 400 species on our 12 day trip. These trips are filled with Tanagers, Hummingbirds and a number of amazing Amazonian species. Mammal highlights will include: Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth, Golden-mantled Saddle-back Tamarin, Marañon White-fronted Capuchin, Humboldt’s Squirrel Monkey, Spix’s night Monkey, Red-crowned Titi Monkey, Linnaeus’s Red Howler Monkey, Red-tailed Squirrel, Amazon Dwarf Squirrel, Sac-wined Bats, Greater Bulldog Bat, or perhaps a rare larger mammal.
Excellent lodges including San Isidro and Wild Sumaco, and birding the Eastern Andes and Amazon of Quito set the stage for viewing many species not seen elsewhere in Northwest Ecuador.
