10 days birding tour working on Santa Marta mountains endemic species plus some spots on Central, Western Andes and Cauca valley.

My wife and I have just enjoyed a 10 day birding trip with N B C and Edwin as tour guide. Beautiful places to bird including El Dorado and Rio Blanco. Edwin found lots of exciting birds for us including the White-Tipped Quetzal. Thanks for your enthusiasm and patience. Highly recommended. Saving up for another trip as Colombia has so much to offer.

7 days birding tour through Eastern and Central Andes plus some of Magdalena Valley area

We had the best bird watching experience with Native Birding Colombia guidance and logistics . The itinerary was well planned and the regions chosen allowed us to see different bird species, as well to visit places where we would hardly go on a regular tour. Excellent opportunities for pictures.

21 jours d'observation d'oiseaux dans les meilleurs endroits de Colombie pour ses spécialités andines: la Cordillère centrale et occidentale, une partie de la région de Chocó Bio, la vallée de la Magdalena Medio et la côte nord: la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, La Guajira et les écosystèmes côtiers .

« Voyage très intéressant et varié. Trois semaines bien remplies qui nous ont permis de découvrir un pays aux paysages multiples et à la population très chaleureuse.

Native Birding Colombia nous a organisé et géré notre périple avec beaucoup de sérieux et d’efficacité, un grand merci à lui. Edwin est un guide ornithologique passionné et qui fait partager ses connaissances et son enthousiasme pour les oiseaux et le milieu naturel dans la limite de son niveau de la langue française.

Grace à sa détermination et sa persévérance nous avons pu multiplier nos observations, tous plus belles et inattendues les unes que les autres. 329 espèces photographiées dont 20 endémiques et 13 quasi-endémiques. »

" Very interesting and varied trip. Three busy weeks that allowed us to discover a country with multiple landscapes and very friendly people.

Native Birding Colombia organized and managed our journey with great seriousness and efficiency, a big thank you to him. Edwin is a passionate ornithological guide who shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for birds and the natural environment to the limit of his level of the French language.

Thanks to his determination and his perseverance we have been able to multiply our observations, all more beautiful and unexpected than the others. 329 photographed species including 20 endemic and 13 near-endemic. "

Bird Photography Tour - Central and western Andes

This is to say thanks to you for all the great birding experiences that you made accesible to us all. We had a great time in all the various environments you opened up for us.  Also thanks for ensuring our safety. Our trip worked out really well with all your help. Special thanks for finding the Manakin at the end when I was on my last legs.

I realise that one of your many qualities as a bird guide is your determination and perseverance to find the bird, you displayed this in large amounts when I for one was tiring and about to give up.

Thanks again for all your efforts and  good humour.


We go home with nothing but praise for you and Colombia as a whole. We experience more kindness and help from everyone we met and things worked out great.

Birding in Central Andes

One of the best things about Edwin is his youth and vitality which more than makes up for his relative newness to his career. He has wonderful mentors also! I also appreciated his flexibility with regards to the schedule. He's just a great all-round guy.

We saw many species daily ! Plus monkeys!

Colombia is a magical place!
