Trip report: Ecuador, the Andes Introtour (June 2012) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Scott Olmstead.

Our Andes Introtour is just that: an introduction to birding in the Andes. Even if you have birded other regions of the Neotropics, there is something unique about the biogeography of the Andes, and how the species composition of no two sites will be exactly the same. On this tour we spent six days visiting a variety of birding sites at different elevations, showcasing the subtle differences in the lush cloudforests of Northwest Ecuador. The birds were numerous and spectacular, the weather was pleasant and conducive to birding, the company was enjoyable, and we spent all five nights in the field at the delightful Tandayapa Bird Lodge. What more could you ask for?
