Tanagers and more in Ecuador
Tomorrow I'll be leaving on what I expect to be a great birding adventure in South America. I also expect to be amazed at the variety of birds... (About 1,600 species are known to be present in Ecuador.) ...and pleasurably frustrated at trying to identify what I see. In "The Birds of Ecuador" by Ridgely and Greenfield there are seven color plates illustrating just Tanagers! Can't wait!
