ECUADOR BIRDS TOURS EAST SLOPE INTRO
To finalize this pandemic year, we had the pleasure to host one our New Jerseys Clients, that he decided to visit our East Slope Tour for a couple of days. We started birding in the Papallacta Pass and Guango Reserve, both located in the Cloud Forest. Even though the weather was a bit rainny we were able to see some great rare birding species like the Gray-breasted Mountain Toucan, Andean Potoo, White-capped Dipper, Tawny Antpitta, Andean Guan, Torrent Duck, Mountain Cacique, and the Spectacled Bear.
We continue birding towards Cosanga Valley in the transition forest, with incredible birding flocks. Overnight was at our partner San Isidro Lodge, where we saw the White-bellied Antpitta, Bronzy Inca, Inca Jay, Masked Trogon to name a few. We returned to Quito in the late afternoon. In 2 birding days we saw 111 new birds species, 10 of them rare and endangered, and most where lifers to our client.
