Check out the calendar. Because I live part-time in two places and travel quite a bit leading tours, I might not be available when you are visiting one of my home areas. The calendar should give clarity to where I’ll be on a given day and what tours are available.
Not really. Birding is not hiking. We move slowly through the environment, noticing movements and listening for sounds as we go. However, many tours will involve being on your feet for a while. If you have physical limitations, consider scheduling a private tour where I can customize a tour to your abilities.
Yes! I am a photographer too, and I always enjoy getting people in great positions for bird photos. However, public tours are not photography-focused. If you want a photography tour, I recommend scheduling a private tour.
Great! Sign up for the e-newsletter, follow IndiGo Birding Nature Tours on Facebook, and/or drop me an email letting me know which tour destination you are interested in. For some tours (Belize is one example), I can add you to an early notification list so you know that you will have time to consider the options before the registration goes live.
No! Everyone is welcome. One of my joys and responsibilities as a guide is meeting people wherever they are in their birding journey and helping them take the next step. For complete beginners, it might be the first step… one that takes them into a new world of enjoying birds.
No. I have Celestron binoculars for participants to borrow. Models available include Celestron Nature DX, Trailseeker, and Regal ED.
Some of the best birding can happen on less-than-ideal days. Of course, I don’t want anyone to have a miserable experience on a tour. I will be watching the forecast as the tour day approaches and will suggest rescheduling the tour if I deem it to be best. If you are unable to reschedule, then we can agree together to cancel the tour, and I will refund any money that you may have already paid.
