Tour Details

Goa is a birders paradise with many excellent habitats. We’ll see many species of endemics in peninsular India as well as many wintering species from farther north and more widespread Asian birds. Wonderful birds, exquisite beaches, delicious food, and the easygoing Goan lifestyle – it is almost too good to be true! We’ll visit a harrier roost that contains good numbers of both Montagu’s and ghostly Pallid Harriers and where Booted Eagle and both Greater and Indian Spotted Eagles are common. We also have a couple of reliable sites for Black, Rufous-bellied, and Crested Hawk-Eagles. Finally, we hope to see one of Goa’s avian specialties: Indian Pitta, a much-wanted species spotted frequently by our guides on previous visits. We may also spend time sightseeing in Old Goa and at the Hindu temple of Mangueshi. All the sites that we’ll visit in Goa are at a low altitude – none are above 400 meters. Please note that during the festive period, the tour may run in reverse order. Kerala This tour focuses on the endemic birds of the Western Ghats and South India generally. The area is known for its species richness – with more than 450 bird species and a good diversity of mammals ranging from Asian elephants and Nilgiri Langur monkeys to the rare Mouse Deer to name just a few of the special fauna. A lot is common with Goa, so we will not repeat the species. With the help of an excellent bird guide, you should stand a good chance of picking up most of the endemic bird species associated with the Western Ghats Endemic Bird Area. Species include White-bellied Treepie, Crimson-backed Sunbird, Malabar Grey Hornbill, Malabar Parakeet, Nilgiri Woodpigeon, and Nilgiri Flycatcher to name a few. In addition, you will see the enigmatic Ceylon Frogmouth, colorful Malabar Trogon, and Indian Pitta. Thattekad is awesome for owls, you will see many species.
