My name is Marc, I am a beginner birder. I have recently bought a hostel in the cloud forests of Ecuador with some beautiful gardens and surrounding forests which are a haven for all sorts of birds.

My hobby is more taking photographs of hummingbirds using a camera loaded with motion detection software. Some of these photos are on our website.

We have a sightings book at our place which various visitors have added to over the years, I have collated these sightings into a spreadsheet that is also on our website.

I'll be honest this is a bit of an advertisement to have people come and stay with us but once we are settled I am looking at contributing particularly in regards to the hummingbirds of our area.

Meanwhile if anyone has any comments on our sightings list please feel free, perhaps some people on this forum made these sightings?
