Ecuador - Tandayapa Valley birds

Here's a quick post with a few photos from down here in Ecuador. I spent the the past few days between the Tandayapa Valley (cloud forest) and Milpe (rainforest). The fruit feeders at Tandayapa were unbeliveably productive..... some of the best tropical bird photography I've ever had! Tomorrow I cross over to the east side of the Andes for a few days before descending down into the Amazonia lowlands. Not sure how good the internet access will be for the rest of the trip, but I'll try to post more photos if I can!

The photos below were all taken with a Canon 1D mk IV and 500mm f/4 IS lens often with a 1.4x teleconvertor.
