Birds of San Juan Bosco

In any given morning drinking coffee on my balcony, I can identify 23 species of birds. Within a 15 minute walk from my house, I've identified over 50 species of birds. In total, 126 species of birds have been identified in San Juan Bosco over a 2.5 year period.

  • Several rare species of birds exist in the area, and sightings of birds from other regions (RED-MASKED PARAKEET known in Loja), make San Juan Bosco as a birders paradise..
