Why birding in Colombia with us?

We are Niky Carrera Levy and Mauricio Ossa, a couple of photographers who love birds and their conservation. 

In 2016 we created «Birds Colombia», a project that works on strategies for the conservation of birds and their territories. 

In 2019 we created «Guardian de las aves», a project for children to pursue conservation by making them fall in love with birds. 

In 2020 we created «Birders Together», a campaign to help 150 people who were left without income during the pandemic. We were able to get 22 operating companies and managed to collect U$50,000 in 500 donations. 

In 2021 we made the first Big Year in Colombia during which we were able to record 1,453 species. 

In 2022 we are launching our Signature Tour project in which you will be able to select one of the tours we have designed or we can create a personalized one based on your needs. We will always go with you so that you experience the best in observing and taking pictures of birds with all that Colombia has to offer. Come to birding In Colombia With Us.

The first Big Year in Colombia.
