What makes Paradise Birding unique?
Several things set us apart from other companies, first and foremost of which is our commitment to conservation. We regularly donate a portion of our tour revenues to support bird conservation in the places where we do business. Recent contributions have included Honduran Emerald habitat conservation in Honduras; Bonnelli’s Eagle nest monitoring in Sicily; and Hornbill nest-box construction in Malaysia.
Beyond our conservation commitment, Paradise Birding prides itself on offering tours that appeal to birders from all walks of life and with a wide range of skills and abilities. Several elements of our operation make our tours special:
Small groups: We take only 3-8 birders per tour with everyone getting a window seat in the most comfortable vehicles available.
Two U.S. guides per tour: With local experts in some regions, we offer some of the highest guide-to-client ratios in the business.
Multiple nights at each location: Less packing means a relaxed pace and unhurried enjoyment of the wildlife and habitats.
Excellent food: Our guests consistently tell us that we provide some of the best meals they’ve ever had on a tour.
More than just birds: We focus on natural history, ecology, and conservation, as well as cultures, in the diverse regions we visit. Studying bird behavior and learning about local ecosystems take precedent over a long bird list.
Innovative itineraries: We lead a series of International Woodpecker Conservation Tours as well as woodpecker-themed tours in Oregon and California. We also lead tours that focus on unique natural phenomena, like winter tours to see huge flocks of Bohemian Waxwings; coastal trips to experience major tidal events; and Sicily nature tours that also focus on world-class cuisine & ancient cultural ruins.
Don't take our word for it. Our clients have been singing our praises for years. Here's just a sampling.
