S. Ecuador: Highland Rarities & Tumbesian Endemics - Birding Tour

Tour Overview:

Southern Ecuador is a beautiful and highly diverse region with amazing variety in habitat, scenery, and birds. We cover everything from the coastal region, to swamps, deserts, arid scrub, deciduous forests, rainforests, montane cloudforests, high altitude elfin forests, and páramo. This trip will give you the chance to see almost all the birds endemic to the Tumbesian region of western Ecuador and northwestern Peru, as well as a number of high Andean species shared only with remote parts of northern Peru, including the iconic Jocotoco Antpitta. We also make a special effort to find the spectacular Orange-throated Tanager.
