From the lush Amazonian rainforests to the high Andean páramos, Ecuador is indeed a special place, boasting good access to birding habitat, unsurpassed scenic splendor, friendly people, and a stable government. Incredibly, over 1,670 species of birds have been recorded in the country’s continental mainland. Among them are many of the most spectacular and distinctive Neotropical treasures. Through our back-to-back tours, The Best of Amazonia and Eastern Slope of the Andes, we offer an exceptional northern Ecuador birding and natural history extravaganza. The Best of Amazonia samples the splendid avifauna of the western Amazon Basin, featuring the amazing Napo Wildlife Center and the mega-biodiverse Yasuní National Park. Eastern Slope of the Andes explores the heart of the magnificent Ecuadorian Andes on its eastern slopes.
Please join VENT tour leader and Ecuador resident Paul Greenfield for the next installment in our webinar series, in which he’ll present an overview of these excellent tours. With Paul leading the way, we’ll enjoy an in-depth look at the magnificent Napo Wildlife Center and all that it offers: lovely accommodations, rainforest trails, blackwater streams and a placid forest lake, canopy towers, and more; and the cloud forest ecosystem of the Andes where highlights include staying at lodges at three distinct elevation zones observing a pageant of spectacular hummingbirds and tanagers among innumerable other tropical birds.
