Take a Birding Tour
Conservation birding tours with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies combine world-class bird-watching with science-based education to showcase the biodiversity of locally and continentally important bird areas, increase awareness and support our conservation programs. We offer tours regularly in the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains regions, as well as internationally.
Tours are led by Bird Conservancy biologists with support from partners with local knowledge and sometimes exclusive access to key birding areas. Best of all, 100% of proceeds support bird conservation programs!
Experience the abundant and diverse avifauna of this unique region. Birdwatch from the Pacific Ocean to the Sierra Madre with expert local guides.
We’ll explore the coastal environs, including offshore islands, mangroves and tropical forests, around San Pancho, Nayarit before making our way over the mountains to explore the higher elevations around Autlán de Navarro, including the Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve and Sierra La Cacoma, ending the tour near the town of El Tuito, Jalisco, in the lush mixed-forests of the wild and rugged Cabo Corrientes region.
Along the way we’ll seek out many of the 520 possible bird species in the region, including 91 endemic and near-endemic species, such as Long-tailed Wood-Partridge, Singing Quail, Military Macaw, Lilac-crowned Parrot, Mexican Parrotlet, Colima Pygmy-Owl, Eared Poorwill, Citreoline Trogon, Bumblebee Hummingbird, Flammulated Flycatcher, Slaty, and Golden vireos, Chestnut-sided Shrike-Vireo, Aztec Thrush, Red-breasted Chat, Red and Golden-browed Warbler and many, many more.
