Birds Colombia Experience

Birding in Colombia

¿Why Birding With Us?

Hi we are Niky and Mauro, and we want to briefly tell our story: we are a couple of Advertisers and Photographers who met because of birds, since 2015 we have been working on communication strategies to raise awareness about the importance of birds and their territories through Birds Colombia.
Some time ago we understood the power of transformation from children to adults and created Guardian de las Aves.

In 2021 we traveled throughout Colombia, the 32 departments for 365 days, we made the first Big Year in the country of birds, with this journey we managed to reach the most remote communities of the territory, to talk about conservation, through our social networks we show the importance of community tourism and we look for children to become leaders guardians of birds.

The Big Year allowed us to reach all corners of the country and learn about the most biodiverse places in Colombia to observe and photograph birds.
