Colombia: Bird Paradise '21

Feb 09-23, 2021

15 days | Colombia | Quest Nature Tours

Colombia is a fertile ground for bird diversity. Approximately one fifth of the world’s bird species have been observed here – more than in any other country – and many of these nearly 2,000 species are of a most alluring appearance and lifestyle. On this exciting new tour, we discover some of this abundance as we explore diverse and rich landscapes in the centre and north of the country.

We begin in Bogotá on the edge of the eastern branch of the Andes. Here we’ll find a convergence of diverse habitats and be introduced to colourful representatives of some of South America’s most prominent bird families: tanagers, parrots, antpittas, and toucans. From here we head west to the Central Andes where we’ll visit national parks and special reserves often hosting very localized birds, such as the endangered Yellow-eared Parrot. The variety of hummingbirds will always be a source of entertainment.

We round off the tour in Colombia’s Caribbean region in the north. Here we find a bizarre juxtaposition of warm coastal desert and turquoise waters with refreshing cloud forest in the nearby Santa Marta Mountains. These snowcapped outliers of the Andes are home to several birds and other fauna and flora found nowhere else. All along we’ll witness vignettes of Colombian daily life, with coffee tasting a guaranteed opportunity.
