I had the good fortune of doing some work in the Mindo Valley on Pionus 
parrots a couple of years back.  This is a truly beautiful part of the 
world and a birdwatchers paradise. Over 450 species have been recorded 
in the ONE valley including such gems as Andean Cock-of-the-Rocks, 
quetzals, etc. This particular area is of particular conservation 
concern given rapid deforestation of the eastern slopes of the already restricted and threatened ecosystem. I've been 
somewhat out of touch with the situation in Mindo of late but would be 
grateful for any further information you could pass on.

Many thanks,
