Part 06/8 of Glenn Bartley’s month-long trip around Ecuador.

Our final stop on the regular portion of the tour was a little bit further down the eastern slope. Here we were in for a real treat (and what was my favourite bird from the trip) the Black-banded Owl (see below). We also got great photo opportunities for Crimson-mantled Woodpeckers, Inca Jays, Golden-headed Quetzals and the cute little White-bellied Antpitta.

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.
