“Oswaldo Ponce gives us a fresh idea, an innovative concept, materialized in an interactive book that is unparalleled; a practical, versatile and captivating tool; a tool that, in its own right, wins its space in every traveling photographer’s suitcase.”


Lelis Navarrete

Biologist, author of several field guides.


“It seems incredible, but it is true: among thousands of publications about the birds of Ecuador (literally), this is the first of its kind. Although we have some excellent books on Ecuadorian bird photography published in the last 15 years, this one fills (or creates) a new niche by providing its users with information about the ease of photographing over 150 species, and links it to an equally unique web resource: ‘photographs in motion’. Applause for its author.”

    Very gratifying to have this work in my hands, I love the quality of the printing, you can appreciate the detail of the photos very well. The information is very useful, even more so in these times of COVID in which it is difficult to move around a lot, it has allowed me to know and appreciate the places that are less than two hours away from half of the world. Let’s keep on wankin’ with this motivating work.

  4. David Palacios

    It is an excellent initiative. It combines the study of birds with the facilities to develop tourism in the vicinity of Quito. A great contribution from Oswaldo.

  5. Carlos Cajas

    It is a great book, unique in its kind, interactive and amazing, as a teacher of Ornithology in higher education and as an avian enthusiast I am delighted with the usefulness of the book to identify birds and promote this beautiful activity in the youngest and children, mine love to review it and interact with the linked website. Thank you Owi for this fabulous work!!!

    Acquiring the book allowed me to feel a great emotion, like when my mother used to buy me books as a child. This book reminded me of that feeling: I love that it allows me to play with the GIFs. As an amateur birder: the book is a guide to go in search of these beautiful birds. The product arrived beautifully packaged and on schedule, plus it came with a nice note from the author!
