There are a lot of bird photographers these days. But rarely have I seen such exquisite bird images as these taken by Glenn Bartley during his time in Ecuador. How Glenn managed to get so much, often of species scarce and sometimes even difficult to see (much less photograph), is a mystery. But we're all the richer for it. Enjoy this sampling of Ecuador's avian riches, and never forget that many are rare and even endangered--they and the organizations, governmental and private, working to protect the habitats they require need your support.

"Having birded in Ecuador for over 15 years I know how difficult it can be to even glimpse some of these birds. What Glenn Bartley has done here is beyond my belief--capturing the beauty and still retaining the naturalness of some of Ecuador's most amazing birds. This is as good as it gets! I hope this book inspires everyone who reads it to visit Ecuador and South America and to help us protect the birds' many threatened habitats."

"Glenn Bartley takes us on a visual journey through this avian-rich paradise as active participants in his exciting quest and presents an impressive selection of both widespread and incredibly scarce species. We are fortunate to partner with Glenn in sharing his work for our collective enjoyment and to give something back to the birds!"
- Paul Greenfield (Mindo Cloudforest Foundation)
