Tour Teasers


Rufous Potoo is one of the most enigmatic of the potoos - we have a great chance for it on an Ecuador's East Slope tour.


We have a chance to see the rare White-faced Nunbird on a Northern Peru trip to Owlet Lodge. Available for a custom tour.


Resplendent Quetzal is an amazing bird that we regularly see on a Costa Rica tour. I am available for Custom trips to Costa Rica.


This Northern Pygmy-Owl was nesting in Cave Creek Canyon on a Southeastern Arizona tour in May.


The Mountain Gorilla is one of the fantastic highlights of a trip to Uganda.


There's nothing quite like birding in the tropics, especially seeing Black-mandibled Toucan in Panama and Ecuador!


Uganda is "THE" place to see Shoebill - I hope to offer another Uganda tour in 2014.


It is difficult to imagine a bird this bright inside of a dark cloud-forest. Come see Andean Cock-of-the-Rock on our Peru and Ecuador tours.


The Jocotoco Antpitta was first discovered in 1997 - it is a regular feature of our Southern Ecuador tour in October.


The Plate-billed Mountain-Toucan is usually seen on the Ecuador: Mindo and the West Slope of the Andes tour.


The "Mexican" Spotted Owl is one of the regular owls we search for on a Southeastern Arizona tour in May.

Peru: Manu National Park and Machu Picchu


July 21 - August 8, 2018

Machu Picchu Extension to August 11, 2018


After a one year hiatus, I am again offering a Manu National Park, Peru, tour. Manu is one of the most pristine and exciting destinations in Amazonia, and my 2016 tour saw more than 600 species! We do a relaxed journey down the Manu Road staying at three wonderful lodges (three nights each), before traveling down the Madre De Dios River to Manu Wildlife Center for an extended stay. From Andean Cock-of-the Rocks to Giant Otters to a stunning Macaw Clay Lick with dozens of Red-and-green Macaws, Manu will not disappoint! Come join me in July for this incredible experience!


Southern Ecuador: Jocotoco Reserves and Orange-throated Tanager.


October 25 - November 11, 2018


Southern Ecuador has become my most successful trip in recent years - both my trips in October/November 2015, 2016, and 2017 saw about 600 species, including rarities such as Jocotoco Antpitta, Orange-throated Tanager, Long-wattled Umbrellabird, El Oro Parakeet, and many Tumbesian endemics! My trip in 2018 will be a repeat, and we plan again to visit the Cuenca region, especially Yungilla in search of the re-discovered Pale-headed Brush-Finch. Sign up soon, as this tour has been very popular!
