Birds of Pululahua Geobotanical Reserve 

At 1800 to 3300 MASL (5900 to 10800 ft) is a medium-to-high-altitude reserve located north of Volcano Pichincha with 3383 hectares (8359.27 acres).  It is located just west of Mitad del Mundo and has been our home for 5 wonderful years of peaceful living.  The name “Pululahua” is a Quichua word that means “cloud of water” or fog. This name is a good match to this caldera since every day it gets covered with fog usually in the afternoon. This moisture comes from the west, from the direction of the coast. This moisture travels northeast through the Guayllabamba river gorge and condenses in the form of fog when it enters the cool environment of the caldera.  Click here for a full description.

Click Here for our Bird List from our photos.  The actual bird list is larger and needs to be completed, we are looking for volunteers who want to do this.

This place is also home for great variety of birds that live at peace in the micro-climates that have developed in this exotic volcanic land.  There is a great assortment of trails covering  all the altitude ranges, trail lengths, and difficulties.  Depending on your interests we can bird from half day tours  to multiple days.  Pululahua is home for the Rusty-breasted Antpitta which is was recently discovered in 2003.  We also go in search of the the rare White-tailed Shrike-Tyrant which lives in a semi arid area near Calacali.  With some luck and patience we will get a quick visit of the exotic  Ocellated Tapaculo that comes out of the thick and dark mountain bamboo or his relative the Blackish Tapaculo.  We can see the Burrowing Owl in plain day and the Barn Owl at night.  This reserve has continues to surprise us with new birds every time we go out and search for them.   Click here to download our current bird list.
