"North-East Colombia Birding Trip"
A 3-week trip in the endemic-rich north-eastern part of Colombia.
We combine the endemic-rich Santa Marta with endemics of the Eastern Andes.
We promote very much this trip as the Eastern Andes are now that safe that all local endemics can be seen.
While in the Western Andes, there are many places that are to our opinion too dangerous
and that we need to skip on some endemics.
Half of the trip is done in a private minibus. Because we often stay a few days in each reserve in the Eastern Andes,
we use local transport and taxi's. This form is as fast as travelling with a private minibus.
Expect to see more than 400 species in 3 weeks. Among them 26 endemics. To name a few:
Chestnut-winged Chachalaca, Blue-knobbed Curassow, White-mantled Barbet, Santa Marta Parakeet,
Saffron-headed Parrot, Indigo-capped & Chestnut-bellied Hummingbird, Blossomcrown,
Black Inca, White-tailed Starfrontlet, Tolima Dove, Bogota Rail,
Santa Marta Bush-Tyrant, Apical Flycatcher, Black-backed Antshrike,
Silvery-throated, Rusty-headed, White-whiskered and Streak-capped Spinetail,
Santa Marta & Cundinamarca Antpitta,
Apolinar's & Niceforo's Wren,
Santa Marta & Yellow-headed Brush-Finch,
Santa Marta, Grey-throated and White-lored Warbler,
