(593) - 991914333
I was born in Quito Ecuador and went to college in the USA. Now I live inside the Puluahua Geobotanical Reserve with my wife and new kid at the Puluahua Hostal Ecolodge.
Self educated in photography and birds. Interested in promoting these activities to encourage conservation of our biodiversity. For this purpose I continue to develop new websites to link with other Ecuadorian birding sustainable projects. Here is the list of Ecuadorian own birding sites:
Laguna Paikawe - A tiniy Amazonian lake with big birds that are loved by Pedro.
Mashpi-Amagusa Reserve.- The site with the highest Choco Endemic birds in Ecuador: Indigo Flowerpiercer, Moss-backed Tanager, Rose-faced Parrot, and many more.
23 de Junio.- Stay at 23 de Junio for fantastic views of the Long-wattled Umbrellabird and help conservation.
Pacto Sumaco.- Best birding option to visit the Sumaco Biosphere National Park and help the local community of Pacto Sumaco.
Isla Corazon - Community owned birdwatching and mangrove tours. A fantastic place to see mangrove and estuary birds and also help the community of Puerto Portovelo.
Pululahua Hostal- Ecuador Birding Tours that conserve the forest and money.
Refugio Paz de las Aves - A successful birds for conservation project and get close to the anpittas with Angel.
Gareno Lodge - Visit the Rufous Potoo up close and help the conservation of the Huaorani forest.
Cueva de los Tayos.- See and photograph the Oilbirds close to Mindo
I use Vortex Razor HD binoculars and also a Vortex Razor HD 85mm scope. I have used them for three years and consider their image quality very close to the best.
Also I use a modified Cotton Carrier vest to bring along my Canon 5D3 with an EF 100-400mm mark II. Here is my review of this amazing vest at: 10000birds.com Cotton Carrier for Binoculars
