ECUADOR - THERE ARE STILL A FEW MORE SPOTS AVAILABLE!
Birding the Chocó-Andes Region
NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 9, 2023: Payment due by Sept. 27, 2023
An extraordinary abundance of bird life inhabits the forests of northwestern Ecuador. Amid cloud forest, rainforest, páramo, and the slopes of the Andes Mountains, you’ll seek out as many of the country’s 1,640-plus species as possible with assistance from your expert guide on this 10-day adventure. In particular, much of the avifauna you’ll encounter is endemic to the Chocó region, while other species are more easily found here than any place else. Along the way, attend a presentation by a local ornithologist, view the snow-capped Antisana Volcano, and straddle the equator
at the Middle of the World Monument.
