    Bird guide in Puerto Rico?

    We are loosely considering a trip to Puerto Rico to birdwatch a little in the fall if things are settled a bit with COVID-19. Does anyone know of local guides we could reach out to?

    Hiking/birding recommendations

    I’m planning on meeting my friend (who lives in Mumbai and is a non birder) for probably a ten day trip. I’m looking for recommendations of places that are also enjoyable for non-borders from a cultural or hiking standpoint. Otherwise, if I had to choose a place to tour around and focus all my...

    Birding in Cinque Terre/Florence Area

    Thanks for all the input! I will have to do some more research on the when the tourist season is there, but we were thinking may would be a good time to go, before the heat of summer sets in.

    Recommendations for birding Ecuador

    I will be going birding in Ecuador this coming year and am wondering what time of year is best to see the largest amount of species and what locations would be best. I'm planning a 7-10 day trip of guided birding there, so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Birding Taipei in July?

    I'll be visiting Taipei in early July for around 2 weeks, and I'm wondering if there is any birding in the city or easily accessible from the city that will still be good around this time of year? Perhaps even a birding society I could link up with? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Birding Bangkok Area

    I'm sorry to hear that! A friend of mine recommended it to me, but we are in our early 20s so maybe that is why. We are just looking for a beach not too far from Bangkok to relax at for a bit.

    Xiamen birding

    Headed to Xiamen in late June/Early July, are there any places good for birds at this time of year in the Area? I'm visiting a friend (non-birder sadly) but he has a car so might be able to drop me off at some parks or something. Also any guides in the region? thanks!

    City birding and Cat Tien

    Haha yes I will be downloading some calls to memorize for sure! I had tried contacting the national park but not much success. We are planning on staying at the Green Bamboo Lodge, and they said the guide whom they use is named Mr. Trong. Not sure if I should take my chances or keep looking

    City birding and Cat Tien

    Thanks for all the advise! Is it possible to bird Cat Tien without a guide though? I'm just a student, so I'm trying to save where I can. I was thinking of hiring a local guide (the lodge we are planning on said they knew someone) for a day then maybe trying to do the rest on my own. Is this...

    Java birding

    Hello all, I'll be in Java for 2 weeks in late June/early July and I am wondering what my best bets would be in west and central Java. I have read that Genung Gede is good, but might be a bit hard to reach. We will be flying to Jakarta and then Yogyakarta for a while, is there any birding...

    City birding and Cat Tien

    Hello all, I will be visiting Vietnam this coming June and I am just looking for some birding advice. My travel partners aren't birders so I'll be forced to bird mostly in the cities we visit, are there some spots around in Hoi An, Hanoi, Hue, and Ho Chi Minh? We are also planning for a day...
