From east to west: The X-mas bird counts 2014 -- Part 2 Mindo

We all had a very short week of work as we came back from the Cosanga count on Monday and the Mindo count already started on Friday. Nicole had a lot of stress in this week, because this year she took over the compiler role from Lani Miller and she had to organize some parts of the bird count in Mindo including the elaboration of the bird check lists. Furthermore this year was the twentieth (20th) anniversary of the bird counts in Mindo.

Therefore we left the reserve on Friday after lunch and arrived in Mindo in the late afternoon. After we had dinner at the pizza place we went to the opening ceremony. Due to the 20th anniversary a couple of people gave speeches and presentations.
