Over the years, we have noticed the growing interest of foreign birders to photograph our beautiful endemic birds. In response to this, we created specialized bird tours in select places where the most variety of our endemic birds can be observed and photographed. That would include the low-land forest birds as well as our Montana bird species mostly found in the high mountains of Mindanao. As of the latest count we have more than 250 endemic species birds in the Philippines.
As avid bird photographers ourselves, we know that the preferences and priorities of bird photographers are not the same as Birdwatchers. Our Bird Photography Tours are designed primarily to take you to the right place that will enable you to create high-quality bird images. Good sites where birds are well within photographic range. Our Bird Guides are skilled at finding birds and using playback to bring the birds closer for that frame filling detailed images.
