ECUADOR DEEP SOUTH - MARANON MAGIC 

Substantial improvements in road and hotel infrastructure in the far south now makes for a comfortable and accesible tour of the Maranon valley in Ecuador. We will be targeting species not found elsewhere in Ecuador and a number which are easier than in N Peru; including Tataupa Tinamou, Maranon Spinetail, Maranon Crescentchest, Maranon Slaty-Antshrike, Chestnut-crested Cotinga, Purple-throated Euphonia, also Andean Flicker and Andean Hillstar. In this underbirded area we a sure to come up with some discoveries! 

Four hours south of Loja city, or another 2+ hours beyond Tapichalaca, one arrives at the little town of Zumba. A brand new hotel offers a comfortable base for our 4 day tour to explore the area down to the Peruvian border. An additional one night camping option or a long day drive up the Lagunillas ridge will yield Andean Flicker and Andean Hillstar.

In only 3 days around Zumba, Charlie recently recorded 3 new species for the Ecuador Maranon. Who knows what we might come up with you along!
