We keep coming back to Ecuador, one of the best countries in the world for birders. But this time we focused a lot more on mammals. Nowadays it’s much easier to find information on how and where to find South Americas rare and elusive species. We did really well with the most important ones; the powerful Spectacled Bear, the newly described Olinguito, the odd Stump-tailed Porcupine and the enigmatic Mountain Tapir. Photo ops on most, except for the last mentioned. We also saw a good selection of targeted birds that I still needed. Thanks for valuable advice and help with planning the trip, Roger. The first 6 photos in this gallery represent some of the most wanted or unique targets on the trip. The rest are uploaded chronologically.
