Crested Owl #Amazon #Napo #Ecuador #Photo blog at

Fantastic trip to Ecuador, where we were very lucky to be able to visit several of the distinct habitat zones, ranging from the sea-level Galapagos, through the moderately high-level cloud forest, the very high Andes ‘Paramo‘ and attendant volcanoes, plus down into the tributary river of the Amazon, the Napo River (Rio Napo).

Here’s a shot of the slightly disdainful looking Crested Owl, spotted by our sharp-eyed guide Eduardo from the excellent Napo Wildlife Centre.
