This is a private reserve near Las Tolas on the west slopes of Ecuador at only two hours from Quito.  It is owed by a German-Ecuadorian couple and dedicated to research and education for biology students.  Now it is quickly becoming one of the hotest birding eco-tourism places in Ecuador where you can see the Banded-ground Cuckoo.  This bird is almost impossible to see anywhere else and it is now beeing feed daily at their gardens giving great views to all the birders with a Cuckoo gap in their bird list.

I have posted my first encounter with the Banded-ground Cuckoo with 10000birds.com at this post:  http://10000birds.com/banded-ground-cuckoo-neomorphus-radiolosus-in-ecuador.htm

I would love to arrange a tour for you or please visit their website at www.unpocodelchoco.com

Also you can call Nicole at 0985407450 or send them an email at: unpocodelchoco@gmail.com

Here is a video I created from my first encounder with the Cuckoo:
