Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America, but it has an extraordinary range of habitats within its boundaries. One of its most exciting regions is the Andes. Forming the country’s backbone, the Andes contain over thirty volcanoes, with almost a third that are active, paramo grassland, highland lakes, and mountain slopes with tracts of elfin, temperate, and sub-tropical forests. These areas are famous for superb birding.
