18-oct The last images from the coast. Nothing special but the Chachalaca turned out quite well as did the Spotted Rail and also flight shots of Willets and Black-bellied Plovers. It was also nice to get a picture of a female Red-legged Honeycreeper.
Also a Northern Waterthrush from the Botanical Garden, Quito today.

17-oct A few pictures from a trip with a guide-friend to the northwest. Moustached Puffbird was recently found in Ecuador and we went for that which turned out very well. We tried another trail and I got some nice pictures of Broad-billed Motmot.

10-oct Last batch from the photo tour from Gareno and Guango Lodges. Western Striped Manakin is new for the galleries, a bit blurry but it will do for now. Harpy Eagle at nest is the big deal at Gareno right now together with the Fiery Topaz that is displaying right by the cabins in the early morning. Slow shutter speed at hummingbirds is not good so they didn't turn out sharp but the colors are nice on this fantastic hummer.

9-oct Images from mainly the river islands in the Napo river based out of Sani Lodge. Four new species for the galleries - Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture (3rd Ecuadorian record!), Olive-spotted Hummingbird, Barred Antshrike and Plum-throated Cotinga. These took the combined Mainland and Galapagos galleries to over 1250 species!
Also nice upgrades of Buff-breasted Sandpiper and Gray-fronted Dove.
Next update is from Gareno with Harpy Eagle...

7-oct Some shots from the tower at Sani Lodge. Pink-throated Becard was new for the galleries and I managed both male and female. The Anaconda was my first in Ecuador.

4-oct Pictures from a very nice stay at Copalinga Lodge just out of Zamora. Serious upgrades of crowd-pleasers like White-breasted Parakeet and male Spangled Coquette! Also some nice tanagers and other hummers. More to come from the Chinese Photo trip...

29-sep I first update from the recent tour with seven Chinese photographers. This batch is from Buenaventura in the SW. NO new species but it was nice to get a good image of a Sicklebill on a Helicornia flower. The Green honeycreepers are photogenic at this location.

6-sep Finally an update here. Andean Ibis and Giant Hummingbird from Antisana just before i left for a lengthy stay in Sweden. Today I successfully twitched Maroon-chested Ground-Dove at Pululahua just north of Quito. No pictures but I did get pictures of the pichinchae subspecies of Burrowing Owl - the third out of three possible subspecies in Ecuador!

23-jun I recently produced a broschure about the birds of the Quito Botanical Garden with all text and images by me. For sale $3 at the entrance of QBG.
