Presento aquí una pequeña colección de fotos de aves que logré en este viaje por cuestiones laborales.
Todas las fotos fueron sacadas un Sábado ya que pude extender mi visita un día más para poder visitar un are silvestre. Los sitios visitados son:

Parque "El Lago" sobre la represa de Chongón, a unos 26 km al O. de Guayaquil, donde pasé la mayor parte del día. Sitio web:

Bosque protector "Cerro Blanco", recorriendo el sendero "canoa". Esta reserva protege Papagayo de Guayaquil que se encuentra en peligro de extinción.
Sitio web:

Esta página incluye 53 fotos abarcando 15 especies de aves (de las cuales 9 no tienen registro en Argentina)
Asimismo pude hacer mis primeras fotos de 4 especies que sí tienen presencia en Argentina.

Gracias por visitar esta página - Alec Earnshaw

Here are some bird photos taken during a business trip to Guayaquil. I was able to stay an extra day to visit a wildlife area. The sites are visited are:

Parque "El Lago" nature park on the Chongón reservoir, some 26 km west of Guayaquil, spending most of the day here. Website:

Cerro Blanco protected forest, doing the "Sendero Canoa" trail, thus known as its shape is much like
that of a canoe: setting off upstream along a trail constructed on the mountain side, crossing the stream, and then returning to the starting point along the opposite side of the stream.

This reserve has so-called "tropical dry forest" and protects the endangered Guayaquil Macaw. It is a Birdlife 'Important Bird Area' (IBA) site. Check out excellent site at

Sadly it seems the Canoa trail is threatened to completely dissapear due to the expansion of a neighbouring quarry. If you have been there it is your duty to write to try and stop this. Please visit the website.

This page includes 53 photos covering 15 bird speices (9 of which are not recorded in Argentina).
I was also able to get my first photos of 4 species that range into Argentina.

Many thanks for visiting this page - Alec Earnshaw
