El Oriente

As I headed into my 3rd month in Ecuador this fall, and finished paying up a month's rent in Quito, I headed out to eastern Ecuador (known as el Oriente).  With only 2 weeks left in Ecuador before heading home for a bit, I wanted to get out of Quito, go somewhere warmer and do some more birding!  Being back out here for a week brought back a lot of memories from time spent here while working with GVI in 2010, and it was so nice to be back!  Here are a couple photos taken in Tena, province of Napo, Ecuador.

Cute parrots made out of times hanging out in Parque Amazonico in Tena - great idea!

Tire macaw.  They have decorated the footbridge that passes over the river in Tena with these parrots as well!
More to come from eastern Ecuador!
