Ecuador will blow your mind
VICKSBURG, MISS. — I returned this morning from a whirlwind trip to Ecuador. It’s going to take weeks to relate in words and pictures what we encountered in four very full days, so although I’m exhausted, we’d better get started.
I must first thank my hosts, Renato Espinoza and Paola Cevallos of Pululahua Hostal, for their invitation, company, and care. They love their country and its birds and are passionate about seeing them preserved. We’ll find out more about them later.
Seeing representatives of different bird families is exciting to me, so I thought I’d give a tiny taste of what’s to come by showing photos of birds in families I hadn’t encountered before. We’ll start with a real bang (and if you want to hear more about all these birds and many, many more, this would be a really good time to subscribe to my feed or sign up to receive posts by email):
