I'll have one more thread of Ecuador wildlife after this, but this one wraps up the Amazon

Merry Christmas!

Orange-cheeked Parrots and Scarlet-shouldered Parrotlets

Yellow-crowned Amazon Parrots, Mealy Amazons, and Blue-headed Parrots

Same as above, but also Dusky-headed Parakeets

Great-billed Hermit

Long-billed Starthroat

Wire-tailed Manakin (I know photo quality isn't great, but this is a special bird and it took a fair amount of tracking effort to get to it, lighting was difficult, and I am in need of a telefoto lens too!)

Crested Owls

White-throated Woodpecker (the guides said this was a more rare sighting)

This butterfly was an *amazing* vivid-fluorescenty-scarlet color on its topside, but it was impossible to photograph it while flying

Not resizing a few of these, as they deserve to be large :-)

Golden-mantle Tamarin

White-chinned Jacamar (not a hummingbird)

Cinnamon Attila

Adult Rufescent Tiger-heron

Juvenile Rufescent Tiger-heron


Paradise Tanager

Ivory-billed Aracari

Scale-breasted Woodpecker

Spider Monkey
