The small South American nation of Ecuador is one of the Earth’s most ecologically diverse countries. With nearly 1,700 species of birds (North America has only about 900) it has become a leading destination for birdwatchers and eco-tourists from all over the world. Join us for a photo tour of Northwestern Ecuador with its lush rainforests, spectacular Andes mountains, and birds of all colors of the rainbow. The program will be presented by wildlife photographer Doug Harr, avian consultant and president of Iowa Audubon.
