birding Philippines


birding intense tour

These are basically the same as those offered by the large specialist tour operators but differ in that they are for a smaller number of people (4) and can be undertaken at any time, subject to my availability, rather than once or twice at specific times of the year.

I am also less expensive!!

Intensive tours involve early morning bird watching almost every day and extensive travel in pursuit of the maximum number of species.

These tours are great fun and you get to see a very large number of bird species and more of the endemics - but they are quite strenuous and tiring.
"TAILOR MADE" ENDEMIC TOURS
These can be arranged to anywhere within the Philippine Islands.

Simply let us know where you would like to go or which species you would like to see and we will get back to you with a suggested itinerary and the cost.
