During our Norther Endemics Birding Tour we will be covering the Colombian Caribbean coast, focusing mainly on mangrove ecosystems, later, the Sierra Navada de Santa Marta, considered by IUCN as the most irreplaceable region in the world for its biodiversity, where we will observe, among many others species, more than 20 endemics in an altitudinal gradient of only 1,800 meters (5,900 ft), between 700 and 2,400 meters above sea level (2,300-7,900 ft), an unimaginable paradise for birders.
Finally, our trip ends in the beautiful Guajira Peninsula where we will also find many more near endemic species in the dry forest like the Vermilion Cardinal, the Buffy Hummingbird and the White-whiskered Spinetail among other, also, flamingos, herons, sandpipers, terns and thousands of sorebirds.

 

Colombia is for birders what Himalayas is for mountaineers:
The Ultimate Birding Challenge.
