Birdwatching Tours Ecuador, Bird watching Ecuador South America. Our birdwatching programs takes you to one of the most remarkable birding sites of Ecuador like : Amazon, Galapagos, Andes and the Pacific Coast.
For birding purposes, Ecuador can be divided into eight faunal zones:
- Amazonian Lowlands
- Northwestern (Choco) Lowlands
- Southwestern (Tumbesin) Lowlands
- Eastern Subtropics
- Galapagos Islands
These zones are largely the result of the uplift of the Andes mountains, which separate and isolate western Ecuador from the eastern part of the country. Additionally, the western lowlands experience a strong moisture gradient from south (arid) to north (very wet), causing even more diversity.
If you choose to go on your own, you can follow certain strategies to improve your chances of seeing that once-in-a-lifetime rarity.
One unsettling characteristic of tropical birds is their habit of foraging in large mixed-species flocks. This means that a birder might not see any birds at all for a long while, and then suddenly be confronted with forty or more species flitting around for ten minutes or so, followed once again by silence. Tropical birding depends on finding these flocks so why not let our guides do it for you!
