Just back from a trip to Ecuador. A few of the birds we saw in the the Galapagos Islands.

Cool! I so want to see a Blue-footed Booby. I've always thought that they would be fun.

Thanks everyone. Mike, the trip was outstanding, we highly recommend it. We went with a company called Natural Habitat Adventures, they were great. Another couple in our island tour group had added on a birding trip on the mainland into the rain forest. An excellent idea, wish we had done that also.

Thanks Cvc, I appreciate you getting back with me on that. The trip I'm signed up for is with the same person, Steve Gettle, that I went to Costa Rica with and it is 9 days on the islands then an additional extension of 4 days in the Ecuadorian cloud forest to photograph hummingbirds. From what you say that seems to be the way to go. Thanks again for the info, I'm excited already and it is still 14 months away.
Take care,
Mike
