Birding in Northern Ecuador

Sue Killeen – Former club president

     Northern Ecuador features some of the country’s best-known birding locales. It is possible to see over 400 species in 10 days.  The west slope of the Andes and the lowlands of the northwest encompass part of the Choco Endemic region where many endemics and near endemics are found. You can find over 20 species of hummingbirds in the Mindo and Tandayapa Valleys.  Not to mention the Antpittas.

     In the high Andes paramo region there are several high-altitude species that seem a bit dull because the environment is so barren due to the elevation but no less spectacular.  Then there is the east slope of Andes which has a whole new array of species not found in the west, and an altitudinal transect can produce over 200 species in less than a week.

     From there we will travel to the Amazon lowlands where we can find Macaws and parrots at clay licks as we travel along the Rio Napo and explore flooded plains.  The Napo Wildlife Center is within the Yasuni National Park.  It is claimed to be the most biodiverse place on Earth, spanning nearly 2.5 million acres of lush rainforest. The Ecuadorian Amazon is home to more than 600 bird species. The splendors of the Amazon are unforgettable.

     Come and join Sue on a wonderful adventure through Northern Ecuador
