See why Ecuador is considered a top destination in the world for Bird watching, due to its amazing megadiversity spread in its four regions, the Andes, the coast, the Amazon rainforest, and the Galapagos Islands. Learn about the most emblematic birds of Ecuador from the tiniest to the most magnificent.
We will start with a brief introduction of Ecuador, and the natural beauty found there thanks to a combination of factors including its geographical location, geological characteristics, topographical, climatic, biological, and evolutionary factors. Then, we will enter the fascinating world of birds in Ecuador, reviewing the most emblematic species of the country, going from the smaller birds such as the Esmeraldas Woodstar to the most important bird like the Andean Condor. Not only will we concentrate on discussing each species’ biological characteristics and habitat, but we will also see the important influence that some of these birds have on the local and ancestral culture, including certain birds that have been a source of inspiration throughout the years.
