  • The Best of Tropical Bird Watching

Our premiere site for Bird watching is in Trinidad and Tobago.
Trinidad and Tobago is the hot spot for tropical birding, which offers the best introduction to both Caribbean and South American bird watching experiences. Trinidad and Tobago, even though they are small tropical islands have some of the widest range of families with unique highlight species, all in one space.

Unmatched in the Caribbean for bird watching, Trinidad and Tobago, our feature bird watching adventure destination, ranks by international birding specialists as one of the worlds best top ten countries in terms of bird species, and some of the richest species diversity per sq. km or miles.

These islands offer a unique introduction for safe and well-organized bird watching tours and travel with expert field guides within easy access to the diversity of bird watching ecosystems in a short time frame. This is unmatched on the mainland or on any other Caribbean island.

The islands offer the most diverse of island ecosystem-habitats for bird watching.
Though Trinidad is only seven miles from the South American mainland, species found there are readily available here for viewing or photography.

Bird watching habitats include elfin forest, upper montane and lowland rainforest, caves, natural savannas, grasslands, fresh and saltwater swamps and man made wetlands. Coastal beaches, mud flats, open ocean, and small islets, are ideal bird watching sites.

Of the 430 species of birds have been recorded on the islands, about 250 are known to breed. There is one endemic, the very rare Trinidad Piping Guan. Unique species include the nocturnal Oil birds which live in caves during the day, Scarlet Ibises, Rufous-Vented Chachalacas, Red-bellied Macaws, Channel-billed Toucans, Black-tailed Tityras, Ornate Hawk Eagles; Golden headed Manakins; Red-legged Honeycreepers, Speckled and Hepatic Tanagers, White-necked Jacobins, Collared Trogons, Blue-crowned Motmost, and Green Kingfishers. Famed for its Hummingbirds, there are seventeen species to be searched for.

There are also marine sea bird island colonies with Magnificent Frigate birds and Brown Pelicans on offshore islands and islets.

Birding on the larger island, Trinidad, introduces you to the widest range of habitats. Whereas, birding in Tobago is more intimate, and introduces you to a more traditional Caribbean type, small island ecosystem.

You can choose between our specialist packages or custom design your own tour!
