Here's an excursion that really is for the birds. Wildlife photographer Dan Suzio is leading a 12-day photography tour of Ecuador, home to more than 1,600 species of birds (including more than 100 species of hummingbirds). Participants will journey to various locations and elevations in northwest Ecuador to sample different habitats and species. Besides hummingbirds, toucans, tanagers and ibis are among the birds photographers may encounter.

Highlights include a pre-dawn hike to photograph the Andean cock-of-the-rock, a day searching for Andean condors and a visit to the Otavalo Indian market. The workshop is limited to five people to allow for individual instruction.
