List of species seen

Black Vulture

Vultures weren't always checked, but this was the more common of the 2 species present. Alambi (~2); Paz de las Aves (~6); Paz de las Aves (10); Los Bancos (30); Common on other days

Turkey Vulture

6 from New Road; Alambi (~10); Paz de las Aves (2, 2); up to 8 on other days

Swallow-tailed Kite

1 flew along hillside in morning as seen from main track up from Bellavista Lodge

Roadside Hawk

Mindo (1 - at top of tree before entering the town); Paz de las Aves (pair mating)

Grey Hawk

Bellavista track on return from Rio Silanche (1) 

Barred Forest-Falcon

Paz de las Aves - 1 heard calling and flew past in semi-dark

American Kestrel 

Both birds at Calacali seen hovering, 1 from above while viewing the valley below, and 1 above the hillside; Paz de las Aves (2 sightings, 1 perched, the other huntiing over hillside) 

Sickle-winged Guan

1 calling late afternoon after visiting Tony Nunnery's, and picked out at the top of a tree; Bellavista Lodge - most birds were seen late afternoon near to the compost heap (9) 

Dark-backed Wood-Quail 

This was one of those surreal times in birding, when I had half expected the outcome, but it was still hard to believe. The large throng that was the tour groups had been assembled at what we believed was the Giant Antpitta area (Paz de las Aves). After a short time waiting, Angel appeared from the corner of the track, walking backwards and talking quietly. Moments later, he was followed dog-like by a pair of Wood-Quails, which eventually fed on his offerings of scraps directly in front of us

Band-tailed Pigeon 

Tandayapa (~12)

Plumbeous Pigeon

Calacali (2 separate sightings); Bellavista (6); Tandayapa (~3); Old Nano Mindo road (2)

Ruddy Pigeon 

Rio Silanche (3 flew over main track from reception area

Eared Dove

Common on the first day of arrival in Ecuador, including in Quito; Old Nano Mindo road (3)

Blue Ground-Dove 

Ranchos Suamox (~12)

Pallid Dove 

Los Bancos (1); Ranchos Suamox (2)

Pacific Parrotlet

Rio Silanche (1 flew overhead); Ranchos Suamox (1 perched)      

Red-billed Parrot 

What was presumably this species was seen and heard regularly around and over Bellavista. It was only when we were at Tony Nunnery's that ~10 were seen well, since they have a habit of feasting on his corn crop. 7 more were also positively identified at Mindo

Bronze-winged Parrot   

Rio Silanche (1 flew over the tower)

Squirrel Cuckoo

1 from Dome at Bellavista, and a further 2 heard

Smooth-billed Ani

Mindo (2) 

Short-eared Owl 

Old Nano Mindo road (1)

Common Potoo 

The views of these birds we saw improved each time we saw them. The first perched below Bellavista was very difficult to find, since we had to peer through bamboo and branches to find it. The second was a nighttime occurrence, sat on the top of a bare stump next to the dome at Bellavista Lodge. We had visited the Antpitta hide at the trout farm on the Old Nano Mindo Road briefly, before being shown the third bird only metres from the steep path

Band-winged Nightjar 

Bellavista to Tandayapa (1); Paz de las Aves (2 early - 1 only identified as this species)

Chestnut-collared Swift 

~15 overhead at Bellavista. Many more over Bellavista were likely to have been this species, but the positive group were identified on call

Grey-rumped Swift  

Many chaetura type swifts were flying over the tower at Rio Silanche, with some seen well enough when gliding low to name them as Grey-rumped

Lesser Swallow-tailed Swift

Rio Silanche (at least 2)

White-whiskered Hermit 

Mindo (1); Milpe (1); Ranchos Suamox (2)

Western Long-tailed (Baron’s) Hermit

This bird initially came as something of a surprise, since we didn't expect to see it. The book has it down as Baron’s Hermit, but this is considered a subspecies of Western Loong-tailed. Rio Silanche (1)   

Stripe-throated Hermit 

Ranchos Suamox (1) - an irregular visitor to one of the feeders, it did land on a nearby perch, but was difficult to see 

White-necked Jacobin 

Alambi (2 males, female); Mindo (2)

Brown Violet-ear

Alambi (2); Paz de las Aves (2); Mindo (3, 2)  

Green Violet-ear

This seemed to be the most common hummingbird in the highlands. They were not always the most numerous at feeders, but many birds were seen and heard throughout the forests

Sparkling Violet-ear   

Initial fears of difficulty in separating from Green Violet-ear were dashed with the obvious size difference. Calacali (2); Tony Nunnery (~4); Tandayapa (1)

Green Thorntail 

A very wet bird was perched at the top of one of the lower bushes in Milpe car park

Blue-tailed Emerald

Tony Nunnery's (2); Tandayapa (~4); Alambi (2)

Green-crowned Woodnymph

Alambi (male and female); Mindo (1); Milpe (2); Rio Silanche (2); Ranchos Suamox (1); Old Nano Mindo Road trout farm (1)

Rufous-tailed Hummingbird 

Very common, very noisy, and very aggressive towards other hummingbirds! Tony Nunnery 's (~2); Tandayapa (~14); Alambi (~10); Paz de las Aves (~6, 2); Mindo (4); Los Bancos (~6); Rio Silanche (~6); Ranchos Suamox (2)

Empress Brilliant  

Tandayapa (1); Paz de las Aves (1) 

Green-crowned Brilliant  

Calacali (2); Alambi (male & female); Paz (~4); Milpe (1)

Buff-tailed Coronet 

This was the most common visitor to the feeders at Bellavista, and was also the species most likely to perch for some time. Bellavista Lodge (~30, ~20, ~6); Tony Nunnery’s (~20); Bellavista (~20); Paz de las Aves (~3)

Velvet-purple Coronet

Paz de las Aves (3, 2); Mindo (2, 1)

Shining Sunbeam

This species had been half expected at the Yanacocha feeders, but the only one seen was perched on a horizontal branch in a field from the Old Nano Mindo road, on the outskirts of the Yanacocha area

Brown Inca

Tony Nunnery’s (2); Tandayapa (1); Alambi (1); Paz de las Aves (2); Mindo (1,1)

Collared Inca 

Bellavista Lodge (~4, 1); Tony Nunnery’s (2); Tandayapa (1); Mindo (1)

Buff-winged Starfrontlet

The most common hummingbird at Yanacocha (~20)

Sword-billed Hummingbird

This bird is impressive both in flight, when it looks like a flying missile, and when perched, since the bill is so long that it needs to hold its head at an angle. A high altitude specialist, the long down facing flowers which it feeds on were seen on the ascent before the bird itself. An initial bird was seen just before Yanacocha, with another ~5 in the reserve, mainly visiting feeders

Great Sapphirewing

Yanacocha (~6)     

Gorgeted Sunangel 

Bellavista Lodge (2, 1); Tony Nunnery’s (2); Bellavista (2)

Sapphire-vented Puffleg 

The first bird seen was building a nest below the track at Yanacocha, with the bird regularly revisiting the half finished cup and then landing briefly on a nearby perch before moving off. Another ~5 were visiting the feeders

Golden-breasted Puffleg

Yanacocha (~4)   

Purple-bibbed Whitetip

Bellavista Lodge (1); Tony Nunnery 's (2); Tandayapa (1); Alambi (male & female); Paz de las Aves (1); Mindo (2,1)

Booted Racket-tail   

This was probably the hummingbird with the most unexpected "wow" factor. It looks good in the books, but they don't do justice to its diminutive size and character. Bellavista Lodge (~10, ~10, ~6 mainly males); Tony Nunnery's (~30); Tandayapa (~25); Alambi (~10); Paz de las Aves (1); Mindo (3)

Green-tailed Trainbearer  

This is a difficult one, since the reports and local information indicate that Black-tailed is a much more common Trainbearer. However, the males which were seen well had the green tails with black terminal band. Calacali (~12)

Purple-backed Thornbill 

Only 1 was picked up, perched on an extended branch in the meadows high up along the Old Nano Mindo road

Tyrian Metaltail 

Yanacocha (3)      

Rainbow-bearded Thornbill

Yanacocha (1 pair)

Violet-tailed Sylph  

The female was found first when perched, before the two were involved in a mid air tussle. Bellavista Lodge (1); Tony Nunnery’s (~10); Tandayapa (~10); Alambi (~2); Paz de las Aves (~8); Mindo (3)    

Long-billed Starthroat

Ranchos Suamox (1) 

Purple-throated Woodstar  

Quite often picked up on sound before they were seen, they not only sound like a bumble bee, but can even resemble one in flight. Bellavista Lodge (1, 1, 2); Tony Nunnery’s (~10); Tandayapa (~20); Alambi (~15); Paz de las Aves (2); Mindo (2)

White-bellied Woodstar

White-flanked Antwren  

Rio Silanche (2 pairs)  

Dot-winged Antwren  

Rio Silanche (3 males, 1 female) in the mixed bird party next to the stream. They were constantly seen over about 20 minutes in the mixed bird party next to the stream. Walking up the track from the bridge gave much closer encounters

Long-tailed Antbird

1 elusive bird on trackside below Bellavista  

Immaculate Antbird 

Tandayapa (1 male). The blind here has been more or less built with this bird in mind. An early arrival seems to be required, and the bird we saw was seen before full light (around 6.20 am)

Giant Antpitta  

This is the bird which originated the idea of Paz de las Aves. Angel Paz discovered their presence on his farmland a few years ago, and has managed to regularly entice them into the open with worms and calls. "Maria" seems to be the most regular female, but we didn't manage to see any on our first visit. This was the main reason for our return the next morning, and we were rewarded with not only Maria and partner at the regular spot, but also a third adult with an immature in tow at a spot further up

Tawny Antpitta   

2 separate birds seen, both perched in trees - Old Nano Mindo road (1), Yanacocha; (1)

Chestnut-crowned Antpitta

None were seen at the trout farm on the Old Nono Mindo Road, but we did have one crossing the track early evening on the track approaching track to Bellavista Lodge when returning from Milpe

Yellow-breasted Antpitta

1 called to the side of the stream at the bottom of the Paz.de las Aves forest by Angel. This was the first Antpitta of the trip

Red-crested Cotinga  

Old Nano Mindo road - 2 perched in the meadows at a high altitudes

Olivaceous Piha 

1 eating the fruit in front of the upper Cock-of-the-Rock Rio Silanche (1)     

Andean Cock-of-the-rock

In addition to the promise of Giant Antpitta at Paz de las Aves, there is also stakeout a little lower in the forest for this species. Angel and his cohorts have assembled two hides which overlook a regular lek, and we visited this on both mornings in the forest. Since the birds display first thing in the morning (and to a lesser extent in the evening), we had to be at the car park for 5.30 am, then to walk for half an hour down through the forest in the dark to arrive before first light. ~3 males were displaying on both mornings, but seemed to disperse relatively early, within less than an hour after first light. These weren't the only birds seen since 3 groups totalling 6 had been found in Tandayapa the day before, and a female was on the ascent of the Old Nano Mindo road

White-bearded Manakin

Milpe (1 seen); Rio Silanche (1 heard)

Black-capped Tyrannulet 

Milpe (1)

Yellow-bellied Elaenia 

Mindo (1 in clearing)

White-tailed Tyrannulet  

This species can be easily confused with White-banded Tyrannulet, since the white in the tail can usually only be seen in flight, and the off white wingbars can look lighter, similar to its comparitor species. Once a little experience of them was had, ~10 were seen in the Bellavista forests

White-banded Tyrannulet 

Once seen, the wingbars on this species are a much cleaner white than on White-tailed, and they also appear to prefer a higher altitude. Yanacocha (~4)

White-throated Tyrannulet

Yellow-margined Flycatcher 

Ranchos Suamox (1)

Bran-coloured Flycatcher 

Ranchos Suamox (1)   

Tawny-breasted Flycatcher 

The 3 juveniles at Milpe initially offered a few problems. The first was that they were difficult to get good views of, and when they did show, the breast colour was partly concealed. However, the brief glimpses showed the more tawny colouration of this bird compared to Sulphur-rumped & Black-tailed Flycatchers. Another point of note is that it is the only one of the three likely to be seen in the foothills

Sulphur-rumped Flycatcher 

This species and Black-tailed Flycatcher both favour the lowlands. The 2 birds at Rio Silanche showed the buffy wash on the upper breast to separate from the cleaner yellow on Black-tailed Flycatcher
