Colombia is a re-emerging jewel with newly opened areas in its diverse landscape. This amazing South American country sandwiched between Venezuela and Ecuador boasts the most bird species of any country on earth, over 1,800! Colombia covers 440,000 square miles with vast expanses of unbroken forests ranging from the dry Caribbean lowlands to the moist Pacific coast that averages 250 to 300 days of rain per year (mainly in the late afternoon and at night). A great diversity of habitats and seasons can be found as we cross from sea level at the Pacific into the Andes mountains and valleys, then to the Llanos and Amazonian regions. Bountiful birds, many that have not been studied and also rare endemics, live in these unique habitats. We will focus on ProAves bird reserves during the best weather in March.
