Banded Ground-Cuckoo can be seen again. Keen on seeing Banded Ground-Cuckoo? It is back at Un Poco de Choco research station in Ecuador and it is being fed grashoppers. Want to see 15 species of Antpittas? We want to run again our successful 3 week Antpitta twitch tour to Northern Peru and Ecuador with preliminary start on Dec 12. The starting date is flexible. The first person to sign up decided the starting date. 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. Also check out Un Poco De Choco's Facebook Page. (Dec 1, 2014).

14 - Sep 4 GRAND MANU and THE MANU SPLIT - Manu road and Manu Biosphere reserve. 12 or 22 days  The complete Manu tour. Manu road and the lowlands have over 1000 species of birds. All tours to this area are really too fast to the diversity of birds justice. So here is a three week trip that should cover it all. You get time with the birds. If you don't see it the first time there are usually second time options. The lowland Amazon rainforest is very frustrating to birdwatch. Views can be very fast and only in parts. It is nice to be able to get second chances on most of the birds, as well as having the time to look for skulkers and more secretative species.
