Feliz 2018! Happy Birding at Las Tangaras

January 8, 2018

Thanks to 9 super-enthusiastic volunteers and our Ecuadorian staff we had a very successful avian monitoring project at Reserva las Tangaras in December.  We recorded 173 bird species during our two-week expedition and netted 419 birds of 71 species.  Volunteers also learned how to use Hall traps to net hummingbirds, make hummingbird bands, and band the little gems. We all participated in the Mindo Christmas Bird Count and racked up 104 species for the count.
