Crimson-crested Woodpecker (Campephilus melanoleucos) perched on a branch in Ecuador.

Part 08/8 of Glenn Bartley’s month-long trip around Ecuador.

During our stay in the Amazon we had incredible opportunities to photograph 4 species of Kingfishers.

Also we photographed crazy birds like Hoatzin’s, Donocobius, Macaws, Woodpeckers, Toucans and Aracaris, Owls and even Parrots that were coming to a local site to eat clay.

It really was an amazing experience for us all

If you think that a bird photography adventure to Ecuador might interest you make sure to e-mail me to sign up for the wish list for my workshop that will begin in 2013.
