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.

Southern Ecuador: Jocotoco Reserves and Orange-throated Tanager.


November 2 - November 19, 2017


Southern Ecuador has become my most successful trip in recent years - both my trips in October/November 2015 and 2016 saw more than 600 species, including rarities such as Jocotoco Antpitta, Orange-throated Tanager, Long-wattled Umbrellabird, El Oro Parakeet, and many Tumbesian endemics! My trip in 2017 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!
