a HUGE thank you for so patiently and expertly arranging our trip and guiding us with your encyclopaedic knowledge of all the flora and fauna, especially the BIRDS, and helping us to understand so many facets of Ecuador as a country and of Ecuadorian life. You were an amazing guide. I have come back with marvellous memories.
Thank you so many many times for the wonderful trip you organized and orchestrated for us. I can't believe the sights we saw, the variety of habitats and inhabitants, floral and faunal. And you taught us so much about their interdependence and co-evolution. Fascinating. I can understand your attachment to your adopted country and your profession.
I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful adventure and great company! I have been thinking about the weeks events and candidly the day spent with you was definitely a major highlight and most memorable. I will most assuredly recommend you highly to my brother who will be visiting the Galapagos early next year. Again, I wanted to thank you for a wonderful time.
I just wanted to say thank you for helping me out, your page will be a great addition to the material I plan to reference during our club meetings and field adventures. I am very grateful for all the information and resources you took the time to post.

Thank you (Charlie) for an amazing Southern Ecuador trip... So many beautiful birds, perhaps the Long-wattled Umbrellabird was the most amazing. Thanks again for your skill and patience and we would definitely recommend Andean Birding to our friends. We have birded throughout the Americas and you were bar none the best guide we have had.

Jean and I want to convey again our very big, very emphatic thank-you for a truly wonderful birding trip. Your birding skills and knowledge of the natural world are awesome. And your affability and good humor make being with you a great pleasure. We had a terrific time. Hope to see you again.

Hello Charlie…you were my guide for 4 wonderful, bird-filled days in the cloud forest. The visit to the Galapagos was great, my sister and I enjoyed it greatly, hope to go back to visit your area in the future. Again, thank you for an amazing time, you are a great guide.
I would like to express my gratitude for a great trip October the 24 to Yanacocha, Bellavista and Mindo Loma and, especially, for professional and excellent guiding by Boris.

Almost a surrealistic experience to bird the Andes with you (Charlie). For such a short visit, you managed to fit me into several key enviro-habitats… It was a wonderful, fast and furious trip that without your and Sherry's support would not have been nearly as interesting or productive. I also feel that I may have, in some small way helped to support the Andean Birding effort to continue offering world class birding…Thank you so very much for your kind generosity and incredible birding savy.
Your (Charlie’s) guidance and support during our travels were most appreciated… you have a special gift and thanks for sharing your time with us. We certainly did see many wonderful birds!
