We present noteworthy records of seven coastal birds at two high-Andean lakes in northern and central Ecuador. The lakes of Yahuarcocha and Limpiopungo are situated in the inter-Andean valley. At least some of the seven (mainly coastal) species recorded at these lakes-Brown Pelican Pelecanus occidentalis, Tricoloured Heron Egretta tricolor, White-necked Heron Ardea cocoi, Chilean Flamingo Phoenicopterus chilensis, Black-necked Stilt Himantopus mexicanus, Sanderling Calidris alba and Laughing Gull Leucophaeus atricilla-perhaps remained at these unusual locations due to the availability of food.

Sangay National Park is located at the mid-eastern Andean foothills of the Cordillera Oriental of Ecuador. We present a preliminary avifauna inventory corresponding to the lower zone of the Sangay National Park (SNP). One-hundred and twenty-seven bird species belonging to 39 families were recorded, including noteworthy records that represent range extensions for four species, Phaetornis hispidus (Gould 1846) (White- bearded Hermit), Ramphastos ambiguus Swainson 1823 (Black-mandibled Toucan), Phylloscartes orbitalis (Cabanis 1873) (Spectacled Bristle Tyrant), and Microcerculus bambla (Boddaert 1783) (Wing-banded Wren). We also obtained information on threatened species such as Aburria aburri (Lesson 1828) (Wattled Guan), Phlogophilus hemileucurus Gould 1860 (Ecuadorian Piedtail), and Dendroica cerulea (Wilson 1810) (Cerulean Warbler) and reproductive data on one species, Patagioenas speciosa (Gmelin 1789) (Scaled Pigeon). To our knowledge this is a first ornithological survey carried out at this specific site of the SNP. © 2010 Check List and Authors. Source
