Sword-billed Hummingbird (Ensifera ensifera) perched on a branch in Ecuador.

Part 04/8 of Glenn Bartley’s month-long trip around Ecuador.

After a drive across the central valley and up and over the Papallacta Pass (where on one of the trips we had spectacular views of the Antisana Volcano) we arrived at our third lodge of the trip.

From Sword-billed Hummingbirds to Torrent Ducks and from Rufous-bellied Seedsnipes to Turquoise Jays it was hard to know where to point our lenses.

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.
