Birding Watching Tours in Ecuador
FIND YOUR PERFECT TRIP
For passionate birders, Ecuador is the place to be. It has a diverse and abundant avifauna, containing a sixth of all species of birds in the world. Birding in Ecuador is hard to beat. Nowhere in the world can you experience such a wide range of habitats within a single country. From the dense Amazon rainforest, sandy coasts, the cloud forests in the Andes to the Galapagos Islands with a species-rich ecosystem. There are more than 1600 species of birds to see.
As Ecuador makes a more significant effort towards conservation and environmental protection, more areas are safeguarded. Thousand hectares of land were bought by non-governmental organisations such as the Jocotoco Foundation, Mashpi Lodge, and the Maquipucuna Reserve & Ecolodge. More species are now thriving, thus making it the ideal environment for bird watching. Farms are also removed in several regions to make way for a secondary forest to flourish again. Commonly sighted birds in Ecuador include hummingbirds, tanagers, toucans, mountain toucans, cotingas, manakins and many other species. Our bird watching tours are made for everyone who is interested in birding.
