Colombia, with its almost 1900 species of birds, has been projected for many years as the Mecca of birdwatching. No other country in the world has such an extensive bird list as Colombia. You will find one fifth of the world’s birds, in just 1,000,000 km2, of which more than 90 are endemic!

But beyond the record number of bird species in its territory, this Andean, coastal and Amazonian country has some most endearing characteristics, making it not only one of the most remarkable South American destinations for birdwatching, but also for the extraordinary friendliness of its inhabitants. Colombia’s geography is as diverse as its culture. From east to west, it stretches from the Orinoco river to the Pacific Ocean and from north to south, from the Caribbean to the high northern Andes. The division of the Andes into three large mountain ranges is unique in South America. In the middle, the Cauca and Magdalena valleys are irrigated by rivers of the same name. In the north, Santa Marta and Perijá, are part of the two large coastal mountain ranges with the highest concentrations of endemic species.

A recent commitment to birding tourism has resulted in a multitude of new birding routes, lodges and private reserves, providing access to many of these more emblematic birds. Numerous hummingbird gardens and feeding stations throughout the country also make Colombia an excellent destination for photographers.
