Banded Ground-Cuckoo can be seen again. Keen on seeing Banded Ground-Cuckoo? It is back at Un Poco de Choco research station in Ecuador and it is being fed grashoppers. Want to see 15 species of Antpittas? We want to run again our successful 3 week Antpitta twitch tour to Northern Peru and Ecuador with preliminary start on Dec 12. The starting date is flexible. The first person to sign up decided the starting date. It is possible to join for a shorter period if you like. The trip is also very good for birders enjoying hummingbirds, since many of the lodges we visit have hummingbird feeders.  Read the blogpost on Birdingblogs about the Banded Ground-Cuckoo discovery in Ecaudor. Also check out Un Poco De Choco's Facebook Page. (Dec 1, 2014).
