28-jul A long 22-day trip with 8 Swedes was very successful, without hick-ups and with a lot of birds. I got two lifers (Spot-throated Woodcreeper and Speckled Mourner) and 2 new for Ecuador (Zimmer's Today-Tyrant and White-crested Spadebill) and White-throated Tinamou was upgraded from heard only to seeing Ecuador. On this first batch from Shiripuno and Wildsumaco are three new species for the gallery - Yasuní Antwren, Fiery Topaz and Eastern Woodhaunter. A poor shot of the antwren but better than nothing. Some other picture are upgrades but I really liked the shot of the not so fancy Drab Water-Tyrant. My favorite in this batch.

24-jun A batch from a few days in Esmeraldas. Finally got to see Dwarf Cuckoo, third record for the site and the country. This bird was singing so certainly breeds here. Nice pictures of that one was most welcome. We also made a pelagic from Galera but it was no success. Swallow-tailed Gull was new for the Esmeraldas province but could be expected as it breeds on islands off SW Colombia.
On the way back I spent the night in Mindo and got some pictures from hotel Descant's nice garden. Stripe-throated Hermit was new for the galleries bringing up the photographed hummers in Ecuador to 108 species!

14-jun A few images from yesterday's guided day-trip to Antisana. My first observation of the austral migrant White-browed Ground-Tyrant there. The Silvery Grebes showed very well close tot he shore at Laguna Mica.

8-jun A few hours at Papallacta today gave some hoped-for pictures of hummers, mainly the Thornbills. Amazing seeing these guys buzzing around happily - with snow on the ground!

2-jun A half-day trip by myself to Yanacocha, mainly to give Imperial Snipe a chance. I heard one calling at 5.40 am and some of the other inhabitants there. I finally got the picture of Shining Sunbeam that I have craved for for a long time. Also a female Barred Fruiteater at close range and eye-level was also most welcome.
