This was was not on my Ecuador Birding Checklist, but I photographed it on the 29th at the open field next to the scoccer field. Another back side view does show the white tail band of a Black-crowned.
Yellow-crowned Night-heron - There were at least six yellow-crowns at Paradise Pond. The long plumes on the back of the head indicate breeding. Note white cheek patch, orange eyes and white-yellowish crown or forehead.
This was one of the first bird we observed, a Red-Crowned Parrot. It was near the Santiago Oaks Regional Park entrance. There were three of these parrots on the utility wire and very noisy. Not sure if these are countable, but its a lifer for me.
