|8/28/18 to 9/9/18: We were fortunate enough to head to Ecuador for two weeks! We flew into Quito,
headed up to Tandayapa, then drove east to Milpe, west to Guango Lodge, and back to Quito. It was a
fantastic trip and we are finally DONE sorting the wonderful hummingbirds etc.... Click on NEXT PAGE

|9/9/18: Antisana Volcano, Ecuador: The last day we drove up to the Antisana Ecological Reserve before
we flew home. We caught glimpses of the volcano as the mists ebbed and flowed. A grand highlight
was seeing the Giant Hummingbird (largest) quite close! Also Carunculated Caracara (ad, juv with food),
Black Flowerpiercer , Plain-coloured Seedeater , Plumbeous Sierra-Finch , and Stout-billed Cinclodes .

complaints!!!) Also: Andean Lapwing , Andean Gull , Black-chested Buzzard-Eagle , Great Thrush , Great
