I might have complained about the amount of rainfall in Mindo… but being in Mindo in the rainy season wasn’t all bad – the rainy season is the best season to spot birds! Apparently in the rainy season there are not only MORE birds in Mindo – BUT they are also more active 🙂
We were hoping to see plenty of colourful cloud forest birds with as little effort as possible! And to be honest, we pretty much succeeded!!! Most of the birds that we saw during our time in Mindo were from the balcony of our accommodation at Casa Amarilla, or else from the balcony of the main house while we ate breakfast! The times that we put in the most effort i.e. went hiking on a trail to look for birds – we saw pretty much nada (nothing!).
Anyway… the moment you’ve all been waiting for… here are – THE BIRDS OF MINDO!! 🙂
And finally who could resist a video of a choco toucan in a tree (not us!) 🙂
