Private/Custom Birding Tours

Your own private naturalist ... when and where you want!

We can arrange a customized private tour for your group to any of the U.S. or International destinations that we already lead group tours to, from Alaska to Italy, Peru to Borneo. Regardless of where we go, we guarantee you will have a good time!

We specialize in leading woodpecker themed tours in the East Cascades of Oregon where you can find an astonishing 11 species of woodpeckers within 100 square miles of our home base in Bend, Oregon. If you're planning a trip to our home base in Bend, Oregon, and would like to include some bird watching time, we'd love to help. We recommend scheduling your trip during the summer months, at the exciting height of the nesting season here in central Oregon. 
We can take you out bird watching for a half day (early mornings are best), full day, or multiple days, any day of the week. 

How to Register: Contact Steve to inquire about dates and destinations.
