    This is a fairly standard birding tour with early morning starts and evening finishes to each day. One some days we may take picnic lunches in order to no waste time during the middle of the day or having to leave site. The weather can be unpredictable with rain and sunshine both likely. At higher altitudes it can be chilly. We have an amazing photo opportunity for many species of hummingbirds and other species coming to feeders, we will also be looking for a good number of species that are very rare and seldom seen, but we will be going to areas that hold these sought-after species.

    I was lucky enough to go several times on tours with Manakin in Colombia.
    Simply the best tours for birding and bird photography you can get worldwide.

    The quality and organization of the journey is outstanding. It’s a perfect combination between bird hide photography and bird walk to get as many photos opportunities of stunning birds as possible. I have never taken as many photos of birds before in one trip.
    All the guides are top level in their field, they know very well all the birds, locations, habitats and best places to get the best photos.
    Almost everything can be adapted to your needs (food diet, accommodations, target species etc) .
    I am a professional ornithologist, filmmaker and bird guide and I highly recommend a photo tour with Manakin Nature Tours to anyone who wants to get many stunning shots of the most beautiful birds of the planet.
