Colombia Birding Tours

Colombia has more bird species than any other country on Earth! A staggering 1900+ species have been recorded, of which 89 are endemic. This massive diversity results from the equally diverse range of habitats; these include three Andean Cordilleras, two inter-Andean valleys, the lowland forests of the Amazon and Orinoco regions, the isolated snow-capped Santa Marta Mountains, as well as coastlines, deserts and lakes.

Our exciting Colombia – Andean Endemics tour will focus on the endemic and special birds within these areas. While our main Colombia birding tour explores the bird-rich Andean regions, our extension visits the Guajira Peninsula and the impressive Santa Marta Mountains on the northern coast. Some of the target birds we will seek in Colombia include the localized Bogota Rail, Northern Screamer, Yellow-eared Parrot, the fabulous Buffy Helmetcrest (one of the over 60 hummingbird species that our tours usually observe!), half a dozen species of antpittas (many at close quarters at antpitta feeding stations), Chestnut-capped Piha, Tanager Finch, Gold-ringed and Black-and-gold Tanager (over 50 tanager species can be expected), White-tipped Quetzal and a host of Santa Marta endemics. This is birding at its best, and this tour cannot be more highly recommended!

Our Colombia Highlights birding tour is a shorter version of our Andean endemics tour, yet still covers all three Andean ranges and both inter-Andean valleys in search of Colombia’s numerous endemics and regional avian specialties. We have handpicked the choice sites of our longer Andean Endemics tour, resulting in slightly less travel time and more birding time, culminating in an overall less intensive tour. We will be searching for a remarkable collection of birds, combined with spectacular scenery and pleasant lodges situated within prime birding areas. For the more adventurous birder, we have developed an itinerary allowing access to more than 1 300 of Colombia’s birds!

On our ground-breaking Colombia 1 000 Birds Mega tour, we expect to encounter 1 000+ species in less than a month! This fabulous avian adventure includes all sites covered by our Andean Endemics tour, as well as spending time in the nation’s exceptional lowland rainforests. We also explore the famed Choco rainforest, which harbours such spectacular species as Long-wattled Umbrellabird, Streak-chested Antpitta, Golden-chested and Blue-whiskered Tanager to name just a handful of possibilities. The other major Colombia birding addition to this itinerary is the Mitu region of Amazonian Colombia, where we will spend three fabulous days searching for another 200 species not offered on our other Colombian tours. Red-fan Parrot, Fiery Topaz, Pompadour and Purple-breasted Cotinga, Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock, Orinoco Piculet, Chestnut-crested Antbird and Brown-banded Puffbird are but some of the spectacular birds that await us! This Colombia birding tour has proved to be a monumental New World birding experience, and we invite you to join us for the most comprehensive birding adventure of Colombia ever offered and to set a new record for most bird species seen on a tour! colombia birding tour
