Heading east we spent a full day up at the private Antisana Reserve (that speck in the above pic is a juvenile Andean Condor at Antisana!), then the next morning around Papallacta Pass and the afternoon at Guango Lodge (between Papallacta and Cuyuja at 8,800 feet) - an excellent base from which to explore the east slope Temperate Zone and a great spot to check the hummingbird feeders for Mountain Avocetbill, Gorgeted Woodstar, Glowing Puffleg, and the abundant Tourmaline Sunangel (plus Swordbills!)
