Fascinating ecosystem, fantastic guide
I was fortunate enough to be able to visit this unique and fascinating ecosystem with Oswaldo Cortez, who expertly located over a dozen birds I’d never seen before, including the endemic Apolinar’s Wren and Silvery-throated Spinetail. Other lifers for me included the Pale-naped Brush Finch, Many-striped Canastero, Andean Teal, Black-chested Buzzard Eagle, Tawny Antpitta, and the gorgeous Scarlet-bellied Mountain Tanager. Come prepared for the altitude (>10,000’)and highly variable cool, rainy, foggy weather most of the year. The paramo is a wet bog-like area above the tree line. It reminded me of the slopes of Haleakala in Hawaii, and many of the plants are similar ecologically. Most of the plants here are endemics, and many are covered with colorful flowers which attract hummingbirds and other nectar feeders like Flowerpiercers. Oswaldo was a tremendous host, knowledgeable, happy to answer all my questions, and fluent in English. The terrain isn’t appropriate for hiking (birding is done from the road) and is probably not spectacular enough to interest the average tourist. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone with an interest in birds, botany or ecology.
