Destination of the Month 
Tandayapa Lodge, Ecuador
"Tandayapa has got to be one of the best places in the world to see hummingbirds. Its not unusual to see over 30 different species within a short drive of the lodge. Situated close to top birding sites like Angel Paz, Tandayapa is uniquely situated to offer the very best of birding in Ecuador. Day-trips from the lodge with Tropical Birding are really productive."

Welcome to our April edition of the Nikon's BATV newsletter!


The Nikon's BATV crew has just returned from a most successful filming trip to Ecuador with Tropical Birding. It goes without saying that Ecuador ranks right at the top with the best birding destinations on the planet. From antpittas to mountain-toucans and everything in between, our upcoming episodes on this spectacular birding country are not to be missed. The first episode will air in April so check our schedule below for more info.

On April 11 we head down to Jamaica to feature the excellent endemic birding of this famous island so watch out for these upcoming episodes towards the end of the season.

Other news is that Versus is now owned by NBC, a great win for Nikon's BATV. See more info below.
