oh, and laughing gull, brown pelican, great egret and great blue heron - all non lifers in the islands.

LOL - I completely lost count. Probably easier to say how many non lifers I saw: yellow warbler, Magnificent frigatebird, sanderling, whimbrel, ruddy turnstone, smooth billed ani, black back stilt - all galapagos. Unless you count zoo spottings(I don't) then everything on the mainland was a lifer as far as I remember.

Checked the board from the place we spotted this. Glowing puffleg is the species, and considered the most common at the lodge, but thank you for pointing out the cute pufflegs so I could make that determination(and the picture of the board is so small I'm having trouble reading it unless I have a directive)

Cool bird! If you don't mind me asking, how many lifers did you see in Ecuador?
