ECUADOR BIRDING TRIPS

Hummingbird Paradise

Overview

With more than 1600 species of birds, Ecuador Birding Trips are a  paradise for Birdwatchers. Each of the country’s four geographic regions – the Amazon Basin, the Andes, the Pacific Coast and the Galapagos – offer unique opportunities for seeing endemic and hard-to-find species, all while maximizing your chance to observe and photograph them in their natural surroundings. Imagine dazzling flocks of multicolored Tanagers flitting through the mists of a cloud forest. Envision a family of Torrent Ducks battling the rush of a sparkling mountain stream and the unforgettable sound of a lek of screaming Pihas in the steaming lowlands of Amazonia. Imagine seeing three species of the notoriously secretive antpittas at a special feeding station! Just a few of the unique experiences that await you in Ecuador. For sheer diversity of birds in a short trip, it’s hard to beat Ecuador

Trip Itinerary

Our Ecuador Birding Trips begin in Quito-  get an orientation session and meet up your local team of birding experts and set the tone for your fabulous time birding in this south american paradise. 

As we climb up the eastern Andes, we leave the crowded metropolis of Quito far below us. On clear days the views of the snow-clad volcanoes of Antisana and Cotopaxi are staggering. Today we bird montane scrub and verdant páramo looking for Black-faced (Andean) Ibis, Andean Condor, Carunculated Caracara, Ecuadorian Hillstar, and many other high Andean species.

San Isidro Area – We spend the whole day birding the subtropical forest, and there is plenty to keep us busy. Lights that are kept on during the night attract large numbers of insects, resulting in a feeding frenzy early in the morning – numerous birds can be see almost on your doorstep. This is one of the best experiences on our Ecuador Birding Trips

Amazon Rainforest- Napo Wildlife Center is located right in the heart of some of the most biodiverse forest on the planet, with easy access to both hilly terra firme forest and flooded várzea forest. On one day, we will work the terra firme trails, and with the help of eagle-eyed local guides, we’ll search out leks of the glowing Black-necked Red Cotinga, several species of manakin, other handsome birds like Yellow-billed Jacamar and Collared Puffbird, and many species of antbird.

Departure back home with fond memories of the amazing time had during our Ecuador Birding Trip.
