Ivory Gull

Ivory Gull

Back in Massachusetts, after having most of one day to get my act back together, my young birder friend Luke, who some of you may know, came down from Maine to spend the weekend birding around MA. Little did we know that we would be in for one of, dare I say, the worlds most elegant birds. 
It was Saturday morning, and Luke and I had decided to head down to the Plymouth area with Jeff Offermann to see if we could find any interesting ducks, of something of that ilk. We had been having some good birds, found a couple patches of open water that housed collectively 108 Gadwall, 2 Lesser Scaup, 10 "American" Green-winged Teal, and 13 Northern Pintail, among other waterfowl, an Eastern Meadowlark, Eastern Towhee, and a couple Harlequin Ducks were probably the highlights. And then, when we were doing some thicket birding along a little side street in Plymouth, Rick Heil called me. I figured that it must have been something good, but when he said "Adult Ivory Gull, Eastern Point", I really wasn't ready for that haha. Needless to say, we instantly decided that a chance at an Ivory Gull is much better then looking at Song Sparrows and Carolina Wrens, and headed up to Gloucester, making the normally 2 hour drive a bit faster then normal. 
When we finally got there, and had almost made it down to the parking lot at the end, near where there is a little cove on the right hand side of the road, for those of you not familiar with the area, and as we neared the parking lot, we noticed The Gull coasting around the little cove not 30 feet away at times. It was almost instant birdvana. 
We ended up staying there watching the bird for 2.5 hours, despite the negative temperatures, and Luke and I liked the bird so much that we went back this morning to see it again. 
Yesterday it had more varied habits, but today it was walking around on the ice about 15-20 feet away at times, so much closer. Yesterday someone went to the fish pier at the base of the harbor, got a couple gutted striper carcasses, and brought them back to throw out on the ice to try and bring the bird in for great views. 
Jeremiah Trimble, the finder of this bird, and the hero of the hour, chucked the ex-fish out on the ice, but the bird didn't pay any attention to the fish until someone played a quick Ivory Gull recording, which caused the bird to shoot across the cove to see the source of the disturbance, and when he found no rival, he decided that some fish was a good consolation prize.
In the time that we were there yesterday afternoon, probably close to 70 people came and went, from as far away at CT, and today we had close to 30 in ~90 minutes, and from Maryland, Pennsylvania, and who knows where else. I can only imagine that with this bird showing well two days in a row, the crowd will do nothing but grow.
More pictures of the bird can be seen at:

Ecuadorian conclusion

Sorry about the tardiness of this post, I never had time when I had internet access in Ecuador in the last two weeks, and since I've gotten back I've been busy as well!

The last two weeks ended up being spent in Otavalo, to the detriment of my birding. Although it's a wonderful city with the best native market I've ever seen, there isn't really much bird diversity. However, there are some nearby lagoons that ALMOST made it worthwhile from a birding perspective haha. 
Most of the time there we spent in town, with a few little excursions, most notably to the Cascada de Peguche and Lago San Pablo. Cascada de Peguche is this very cool waterfall about 15 minutes away from Otavalo, with nice woods on the fairly short path to it. Also, good birds, including Rufous-chested Tanager, Black-backed Grosbeak, and a nice Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a reminder of home! Lago San Pablo is an absolutely beautiful spot, and great birds. The number of waterfowl and wading birds is superb. We had about 250 Yellow-billed Pintail, and almost 150 Andean (Slate-colored) Coot. The scenery is spectacular, with hills rising up all around you, lovely patchwork farmland, and two 19,000'+ volcanoes guarding the valley. It is a place not to be missed. You can also see a bird there with one of the best names ever, that bird being the Subtropical Doradito. 
The highlight by far of the last couple weeks of my time in Ecuador was going to Antisana Ecological Reserve. It was the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life, and the birds, although not diverse, were breathtaking as well. Staggering numbers of Carunculated Caracaras (207) and Andean Gulls (228) highlighted the day, as well as 4 Black-faced Ibis, one of the only two places where they occur in Ecuador, an adult Andean Condor, and other great paramo specialties with such vivid names as Streak-backed Canastero, Stout-billed Cinclodes, and Plumbeous Sierra-Finch. Sadly Janet wasnt able to join us for the whole time, she started having altitude troubles when we got up near 14,000 feet, and so we had to take her down to one of the guard stations, where she befriended the guard and his dog during the time we spent up on the grasslands :D
The numbers of the trip ended up being 720 total species, of which 593 were lifers.
Undoubtedly the best experience of my life, and I cannot wait to return. My goal is to make it back sometime this summer, or perhaps winter at the latest, and to bird the southern highlands of Loja, and get down to the coast near Guayaquil as well. I would say to anyone who asked that Ecuador is my favorite place I have ever been, and I would recommend it without reserve. It's cheap, the people are unbelievably nice, it seemed just as safe as most places, and the birds and wildlife are seemingly unparalleled. 
My final batch of pictures can be seen at:
And the total list of species seen is below.

Good birding and best of luck to all,
