AQUATIC BIRDS AT ECUASAL SALT PONDS IN SALINAS

Bird watching is a growing activity on the coast of Ecuador. One of the most important places is located at the ECUASAL salt ponds in Salinas. Despite its rigorous environment, these ponds are very important for migratory and resident coastal birds. In January 2007 the Ecuasal ponds in Salinas and Pacoa were included within the Hemispheric Network as a reserved area for coastal birds. It was a great step in the way towards the conservation of these sites assuring for the birds whereabouts to eat, to change the feathers and to rest from their long trip.

BIRDS ISLAND IN POSORJA

Besides watching the dolphin´s beauty aquatic ballet, in Puna Island, it’s possible to visit the

“Bird Island” located in the main branch of the Estero Salado. This is a great opportunity to appreciate the amazing colour of one of the largest nesting colonies of frigate birds in Ecuador.

It was declared ecological reserve a few years ago for the large amount and variety of birds such as seagull, spoonbill heron, white ibis, pelicans, mockingbirds, blue-footed boobies, cormorants, terns and several migratory birds.

CERRO PARAISO IN GUAYAQUIL

Guayaquil is one of the cities with less green areas in Ecuador, nevertheless, in the middle of the city exists a small tropical dry forest…. It wasn´t until 1989 that the Cerro Paraiso Hill was declared a protected forest, with an initial area of 420 hectares. But sadness to see that now there’s less than 200 hectares.

In Cerro Paraíso have been registered more than 100 species of birds, like this beautiful Momotus that I´m using as a background and it is an ideal place for climbing or simply enjoying the most wonderful view of Guayaquil from the top of the hill.

We strongly recommend this amazing paradise in the middle of the city.
