What do people do on birdwatching tours besides look at birds?
What you do usually depends on where you are. Although these activities obviously focus on birds, some tours include side trips to museums and natural wonders.
- The Audubon Society is one of the best known organizations in this field. They offer both North American and international tours interspersed with "para-avian" activities. The Oregon High Desert in Spring Tour, for example, combines observation of bird migration with a geological tour of the canyons. Contact local chapters for more information on tours.
- Cayaya Birding runs low-impact, small group tours in Guatemala. The Antigua Birding Tour will not only send you in search of endemic birds but will also take you into a coffee plantation. The four-day tour costs $350.00 with room and board.
- Slovakia Green Tours offers one to five day tours focusing on birds and natural phenomena. The Lowlands Birds Trip, for example, includes a canoe trip, a hike in the woods and a wine tasting. It costs about $715 for five days with room and board.
