Mass Audubon Tours and Tropical Birding put together a tour of
northern Ecuador, from Sacha Lodge in the eastern lowlands
to the western foothills near Mindo (Milpe Bird Sanctuary).
What a great trip! Jose Illanes from Tropical Birding and I
led eleven participants to 475 species of birds and some
great times from February 28 - March 10, 2012.

 Amazon Basin (Coca to the Sacha Lodge on the Napo River and the Yasuni National Park)


 Western Mountains and Foothills (Yanacocha Reserve, old Nono-Mindo Road, Tandayapa Bird Lodge, Milpe Bird Reserve, Angel Paz's farm)


 Papallacta Pass and Antisana Volcano


 Otavalo and the Central Valley


After the tour, I visited a couple of locations in the north and
then spent a few days in southeastern Ecuador. Oh, and I took some photos.
