Fast forward about 2-years (2013) in Cuenca Ecuador; one morning we wake up to the sound of chirping; there were a couple of chirps there, a couple of tweets here. I looked at Frank and said, “I hear birds singing!” It was a pleasant surprise to hear the singing of birds once again. Where had they been for the past 2 years? That remains a mystery to us.

So since moving to Cuenca we have become rich in animals waking us up in the early mornings. Most of the animal sounds are perfectly fine to listen to in the mornings, and we don’t mind, except for maybe the dogs barking and barking and barking…welcome to Cuenca!
FYI: According to Wikipedia there are 1663 species of birds in Ecuador. Source: Birds of Ecuador - Wikipedia
