A group of four beginning birders were looking for a bird-guide for the Cajas, and Eddy Juca of Polylepsis Tours came strongly recommended. Eddy was organized, pleasant, speaks excellent English, and is a very knowledgeable birding guide. We spent a bit over a half day with him. He picked us up around 6 am and drove us up to several locations in the Cajas ranging from a lake at 10,000 feet to grasslands and another lake at 13,000 feet. He provided binoculars, had a spotting telescope, and really helped us see the birds he had spotted, using a laser pointer to help guide our eyes to the bird in question. He provided us with a bird list after the tour and a number of excellent photographs including the two included below. We saw and with his help, identified 29 species between 6 am and 1 pm. We finished the trip with a snack at a pleasant restaurant high in the Cajas, and then he dropped us off at our homes. An altogether outstanding outing!
