Maria Arrives...(NW Ecuador)

Paz de las Aves, Pichincha Province, Ecuador

This was the moment at the now world-famous "Antpitta Farm" near Tandayapa, when the star attraction, a superb ginger-breasted Giant Antpitta arrived (named Maria by the local farmer who has habituated it). Angel Paz the farmer has been working tirelessly to habituate a number of antpittas in his forest to unprecedented affect, allowing birders rare and close-up encounters with these rare rainforest creatures.
