I started the year off with 2 months of guiding trips in Colombia and Ecuador. We had some fantastic opportunities as usual. And while I didnt shoot as much as I would on a personal trip I still managed a few snaps here and there. After the tours were over I visited a great little reserve in the south of Colombia and tracked down some great little reclusive birds like the Hooded ANtpitta and Schwartz's Antthrush. Fun times!

If you are interested in birds and photos like these be sure to email me to be placed on the wish list for future trips.

I hope you enjoy this gallery of the birds of Colombia and Ecuador.
