Trekking in Cajas, Ecuador article

Ah, the beautiful memories of one of the best day hikes and incredible birding. The endemic Violet-throated Metaltail comes to mind, which was actually fairly common at lower elevations. Higher up Blue-mantled Thornbills crept among mossy rocks, saving precious energy at 14,000 feet, and Tawny Antpittas put their family to shame by almost hopping across my feet out in the open. And I’ll never forget the group of Gray-breasted Mountain-Toucans, one of the most amazing birds of the area. I hope you’ll enjoy the article.
