Bird Photography in Ecuador is fun.

There are so many beautiful birds that every time I go birding a new exilarating photo is captured.

Here are some of the most beautiful pictures I have taken:

Toucan Barbet at Refugio Paz de las Aves

Oilbird at Cueva de los Tayos

Flame-faced Tanager at Recinto 23 de Junio

Spectacled Owl at Gareno Lodge

Cocoi Heron at Isla Corazon

Tropicbird at Isla de la Plata

Galapagos Hawk at Isla Isabela

Aplomado Falcon at Antisana Reserve

Olivaceous Piculet at Mangaloma Reserve

I am glad the end of the world is not here yet. I still have a few more birds to photograph before it is all over.

Renato was born in Quito, Ecuador and quickly flew to the USA to learn all about engineering and climbing company ladders. After getting his engineering degree from the University of Minnesota he worked in the Standard-American-Rat-Race-Company for fifteen years. After climbing the ladder to where he could no longer see the ground, he decided to jump off the ladder and migrate south like all normal birds do. To his surprise home did not look like it did when he left as a young fledgling; the towns were bigger, most of his friends had nests of their own, and the countryside was changed. Shocked by all the change he searched for a new life and a new wife. He stumbled across a vivacious young chick who would accompany him inside a volcanic crater to set up a love nest. So, after eight years of nesting inside the crater a new love for nature and birds has sprung a career in environmental conservation and birding tours. Finally this bird has come home to roost!
