4-jan Pictures from just before new year. Balzar and La Segua. Orange-crowned Euphonia was new for the galleries and I got both male and female. Chestnut-collared Swallow was a major upgrade with some nice images. Masked Duck was also an upgrade including a rare flight shot. I also managed to smack in two new records for the Manabí province and surprisingly they were swimming together! Yellow-billed Pintail is very rare along the coast and the Northern Pintail was the 4th record for Ecuador and first for Manabí.

23-dec Some pictures from a short trip, or twitch, to Esmeraldas to see a Jabiru that unexpectedly showed up there. Better pictures of that than I expected and a few other as well.

8-dec Pictures from the last two-week trip With two guys from Philadelphia. Lots of good birds seen on the trip and some got caught on pixels. No less than 8 new species for the galleries! Some are of rather poor quality but they will have to do for now. I am most happy with pictures of both male and female Bicolored Antvireo which also was the fourth and last Antvireo in Ecuador. Rufous Mourner was also nice.

4-dec Back after a good trip in northern Ecuador. During this trip the news about the new antbird in Peru found in july, became more or less official. I was there with a group in september and saw it, I think we were the third group to see it and I even managed one of the first photographs of the species. It was found by Josh Beck and description is underway.
