Bird watching is a wonderful hobby, and people all over the world love spending time in nature observing these incredible creatures. With thousands of beautiful, fascinating species of bird in every country in the world, there are limitless opportunities for keen ornithologists to travel and experience birds which they can’t see in their own country. There is nothing better than traveling the world to look at wonderful new species through the lenses of your binoculars. With the end of the Covid-19 Pandemic in sight, travel restrictions are starting to lift, so it will soon be time to start booking your next birdwatching trip. 

Here is our guide to the fantastic places for birdwatchers to visit

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Arguably the most special place on the planet to see animals, the Galapagos Islands are a birdwatchers’ dream. Only accessible by a two-hour flight from the city of Guayaquil, the Galapagos Islands were the inspiration for Charles Darwin’s groundbreaking work on evolution. It is worth having some top-notch birding binos to use while out visiting the different islands on a boat trip. Here there are many bird species totally unique to the island as they have evolved in this most isolated of places. Blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, Darwin finches, and even Galapagos penguins are just some of the ornithological treats. As well as birds, you can see the famous giant tortoises, marine iguanas, sea lions, and countless marine animals from hammerhead sharks to bottlenose dolphins.

Brecon Beacons, Wales

The Brecon Beacons are a mountain range in South Wales, and they are a must-visit for all British bird watchers and visiting bird enthusiasts. Best known for being the home of Red Kites, these once-endangered birds were painstakingly reintroduced to the Brecon Beacons after being hunted to the point of extinction in Britain. There is the Black Mountain Red Kite Feeding Station at Llanddeusant where up to fifty red kites visit every day along with buzzards, ravens, and countless other birds. It is best to bring a good pair of binoculars or a long lens telescope so you can see these majestic birds up close. You will find that just driving around the area you will see many red kites, with their distinctive forked tails, soaring above the hills.

Colca Canyon, Peru

The Colca Canyon in Peru is the best place in the whole of South America to see the awe-inspiring Andean Condor. These enormous raptors nest right on the cliff edge of the canyon, and you can get within meters of these incredible birds. One amazing way to experience Colca Canyon is to do a two-day trek, in which you hike down one side of the canyon on the first day, eat dinner and sleep in charming bungalows with the other trekkers overnight, and then hike up the other side in the morning. 

The Florida Everglades, USA

The Everglades National Park is a 1.5 million acre tropical wetlands found in Florida, and it is one of the most exciting places for all nature lovers to visit. As well as the famous alligators, there are hundreds of species of snake, panthers, pythons, dolphins, turtles, and, of course, some incredible birds. The USA’s iconic bald eagle can be frequently seen soaring the skies scouting for fish, and there are also many species of vulture, hawks, falcons, and different wading birds. There is so much for visitors to do in Florida that your trip into the Everglades can easily be part of a familyholiday combining birdwatching with theme parks and other amazing things.

Cuyabeno National Park, Ecuador

Situated in the incredible Ecuadorian Amazon, the Cuyabeno National Park is a dream for all nature lovers. Jaguars, pythons, sloths, caymans, and pink river dolphins can all be found in Cuyabeno along with thousands of incredible bird species. Adventurous bird watchers can book a tour in Cuyabeno from the Ecuadorian capital, Quito, and can expect to see blue and yellow macaws, harpy eagles, potoos, egrets, and many many more. The only way to experience Cuyabeno is to stay in one of the lodges right there in the jungle where you will be taken out each morning and evening to trek through the forest or sail down the river itself. As well as amazing bird watching, you will see many other incredible animals and maybe even do a little piranha fishing.

Published

Wanting to help the Christmas community continue to earn income during what would normally be their busiest time of year, it is calling all Santas, elves and reindeer to submit their idea for an Online Experience idea. It will also be partnering with Santa Visits USA to offer even more ways to meet Santa Claus and the entire North Pole gang this year. These include Christmas magic with Kris Kingle himself, a holiday-themed bedtime pyjama party, a visit with head elf, Buzz Twinkletoes, and even a murder mystery show with Mrs Claus.

“According to a new report by the Fraternal Order of Real-Bearded Santas, nearly a third of their members surveyed will not be taking part in in-person visits this year,” says Airbnb. “As many of Santa Claus entertainers worldwide live on a fixed income and are reliant on their income from appearances during the holiday season, this new reality has created serious economic hardship for countless Santa performers.”

Guests can also enjoy Santa Claus around the world, with special experiences designed for families of all backgrounds, including people with disabilities. These include a “Virtual Visit and Story Time with Santa,” “Mama Claus Holiday Joy,” “Sign Language Santa,” “Meet Santa Claus in Lapland” and “Santa Storytime” with an award-winning author. In addition, hosts are sharing their own holiday traditions from around the world so people can feel festive from home, such as “How to Throw a Holiday Dinner Party,” “Create recycled puppets for the holidays” and “Sing Holiday Songs with a Broadway Star.”

Airbnb will provide additional support to Santa Claus entertainers who are interested in becoming Online Experience hosts, helping them to make a seamless transition to virtual visits. Further information is available here, and you can read about the holiday experiences already available here.
