Keen on seeing Banded Ground-Cuckoo? Want to see 15 species of Antpittas? We shall run again our successful 3 week Antpitta twitch tour to Northern Peru and Ecuador with preliminary start on Christmas Day Dec 25.  It is possible to join for a shorter period if you like. The trip is also very good for birders enjoying hummingbirds, since many of the lodges we visit have hummingbird feeders.  Read the blogpost on Birdingblogs about the Banded Ground-Cuckoo discovery in Ecaudor.
