21-aug I have just uploaded a batch from the trip to Shiripuno lodge in july. Two new species for the galleries - Great Black-Hawk and Pale-tailed Barbthroat. More to come later from Sani lodge and the coast, but that will be after an extensive north peru trip starting tomorrow.

19-jul Back from a good trip mainly to the Amazon. Just one picture today but not just anything - a Little Ground-Tyrant that I found on one of the river islands near Sani lodge! Only one documented record in Ecuador before and a few sight observations. Many more images will come later...

17-jun Just one picture but maybe the first of that species taken in Ecuador - a Paradise Jacamar. With a friend I made an exploratory trip to the far northeast in an area that has only seen birders twice before. I got four new species to add to my Ecuadorian list (Slate-colored Antbird, Paradise Jacamar, Yellow-throated Flycatcher and Stipple-throtaed Antwren). The list is now at 1528 and no-one has seen more!
This area has more potential and there are roads through excellent forest and also some trails into good forest.

7-jun Five images from my stay at Sacha lodge. Eastern Sirystes is new for the galleries and a better picture of the Ash-throated Crake. The Crested Owl is arguably one of the best Owls in the World.

6-jun A batch of pictures from Limoncocha. One new for the galleries - Variegated Flycatcher. Also some rarities like Black Tern and Black-collared hawk plus some upgrades.

6-jun Sweden's National Day today! Just one picture from the last week in the Amazonas. The recently found Ash-throated Crake at Sacha lodge. This was a lifer for me! More to come over the next few days.
My first morning at Coca gave a rare record of Laughing Gull which is rare in the Amazon and now out-of-season. Also the recent colonizer Cattle Tyrant with a pair at a nest.

12-may A short family trip to my mother-in-law in Balzar gave a couple of shots. I went to the new water treatment ponds in the outskirts of town and it was apparently a great breeding site for Least Grebe with 8 pairs with small chicks in one pond and two more in another. Also a juv Tropical Kingbird got caught on pixels. Best bird was a singing male Large-billed Seed-Finch!

7-may A week long trip to the far northeast corner of Ecuador with some other guides here, was very productive with no less than seven new species for me in Ecuador! I got pictures of two of them - Amazonian Antshrike and Black-collared Hawk, both restricted in Ecuador to this remote, but beautiful part of the country.
