COLOMBIA FEEDER PHOTO TOUR

Birders' Paradise: Colombia Awaits!

Colombia has the world’s biggest list of birds, around 1950 species which 145 are just hummingbirds, 141 kinds of tanagers and many trogons, flycatchers, parrots, orioles, toucans and other special birds all great for photography; in addition to all this, Colombia has 80+ endemic species of birds and 135 near endemics. A birding Photo tour in this country is outstanding.

This program is designed to reveal a superb bird photography experience.  So, we have scheduled places which offer birds fed in different ways including: Toucans, antpittas, fruiteaters, sparrows, thrushes, tanagers, hummingbirds etc.

Some places will have only feeders for hummers, others tanagers and hummers depending on the place and season.

But we will do all in our hands to call in, or to point out birds close, and around the feeders.

We will ask the locals about roosting spots and other opportunities to give us sharp and the closest possible shots.

Best time to come for feeders is from early/mid October to November to mid December. But we have been very lucky at feeders in February to may.
