Ecuador Bird List




This is a list of species that I observed during my visits to Ecuador in 1993 and 2008.

The fourth column is for my 1993 trip and the fifth column is for my 2008 trip.

The annotations used are as follows:

*

Life species or family

x

Seen well but not a life species

h

Heard only

p

Seen poorly by me (but identified either by others or myself)

Bird names (and order) are per The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, Revision 6.3.2 (December 2008).

In a few cases, I've included subspecies information for forms that are considered full species by some authorities.

I left off the "San Isidro Mystery Owl", which I was fortunate to see in 2008. The determination of whether or not this is a new species has yet to be made.

Each common and scientific name is a link to a Google image search for that name. This provides a quick way to find images of each species (if Google's search can find them on the web).
