News

22-apr A few days of budget birding with a guide-friend to the far NE Ecuador gave lots of nice birds and some got stuck on pixels. Slaty-backed Forest-Falcon was new for the galleries and only the second time I saw it in Ecuador. Not a great image but it is rarely seen so will do for now. The best picture is probably the Red-bellied Macaws. This seems to be a very good place for that species.

14-apr Still some migrants in the Botanical Garden, Quito. 2 Yellow Warblers and 2 blackburnians. The Great Thrushes are feasting on some pink berries which makes for nice pictures.

13-apr A family trip to Antisana was very nice. And I did get some nice pictures too, specially the Variable Hawk with a rabbit in the claws.

11-apr BREAKING NEWS! Today I found a Warbling Vireo in the Botanical Garden, Quito! First record for Ecuador! I am also about to upload a short recording of the bird to xeno-canto. In mid-april four years ago i found a Philadelphia Vireo here and believe it or not - this bird was in the very same tree!

3-apr A couple of pictures of a Giant Hummingbird from Antisana a few days ago.

29-mar Some pictures from a short trip to the SE with Robert Ridgely. Three new species for the galleries - Black-bellied Thorntail and poor shots of Sharp-tailed Streamcreeper and Speckled Spinetail. Goloden-winged Tody-Flycatcher, Bluish-fronted Jacamar and Duida Woodcreepers were nice upgrades.
Also, the website passed 9000 images! Mainly of birds but also many other wildlife.

18-mar Many thanks to Jaime Culebras for identifying most of the amphibians and reptiles here on my webpage!

3-mar A couple of days in the east slope foothills, mainly for a twitch for yellow-throated Vireo that was a failure. Most rain so not much success overall. Black-billed Treehunter was new for the galleries and turned out very well. Blue-browed Tanager and Wing-banded Wren were also new although could have been better. The Wren is from the worst possible angle as the bold white wing-bar is barely visible.
