Andrés has been chasing birds all over his native Ecuador for a decade now. As part of our team he has not only explored his country extensively but also he has birded Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Southeast Asia and South Africa learning new families and tons of new birds. Based in Quito, when not in the field, he can be found at his computer working on book publishing; he has already released several wildlife guidebooks for Ecuador, including a fieldguide to the birds of Northwest Ecuador, one for the birds of the Amazon and he is close to releasing a wildlife book for the entire country. Andres guides in South America. Andres uses Leica binoculars and a Kowa scope.
