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.
