    Default Ecuador Wildlife - first installment

    I've realized I have too many wildlife photos for one thread, so this is just part of it.

    Apologies in advance for any and all of the annoying ads that come as a result of the image hosting site....

    And for the various image sizes [edit: I'm going to do it differently next time]

    These were all taken on the coast of Ecuador, near Puerto Lopez, in a dry tropical forest, as well as the Isla de la Plata. The final few shots were taken in an outdoor botanical garden in Quito.

    Tropical Gnatcatcher



    Sandwich Terns



    Brown Pelican



    The birds! The birds!! Take cover! Magnificent Frigatebirds.




    Blue-footed Boobies






    Magnificent Frigatebirds



    Red-footed Booby



    Masked Booby






    Olivaceous Piculet



    Ecuadorian Trogan









    What I believe to be the Chestnut-capped Brush Finch



    Pacific Pygmy-Owl



    Rufous-headed Pygmy Tyrant



    Black Flowerpiercer (note the curiously-shaped bill. Neat adaptation.)



    Sparkling Violetear



    Black-tailed Trainbearer

    Beautiful!
    The Sparkling Violetear is my favorite. It looks like a hummingbird. Is it?

    Awesome pics! I'd love to go someplace and see so much variety...just beautiful! As a child I'd go to the aviary and sit for hours just watching them. Thank you for sharing.
