EVERGLADES BIRDING FESTIVAL & COLUMBIA SANTA MARTA BIRD TOUR
Doug Young, President of South Florida Audubon Society forwarded this announcement about two activities supported by SFAS:
Exciting times at Birding Adventures! Join me in the near future at the Everglades Birding Festival, which takes place January 15-19th, 2015 where you may find up to 170 species while gaining advanced birding skills.
And with these new skills, why not join me and Ernest Leupin, a Colombian native and owner of Colombia Wild Ecotours to visit the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the Caribbean for a possibility of up to 25 endemics and 350+ species. Santa Marta is just a 2.5 hour flight from Miami or Fort Lauderdale and is very safe and considered one of the best birding spots in the world!

The idea will be to meet in South Florida and leave for Colombia as a group. As a bonus, we will have a pre-tour birding trip to Broward’s hotspots the day before to see some of South Florida’s target species as well as countable exotics like Common Myna, Purple Swamphen, and Egyptian Goose. After a good days birding, we will have dinner (at your own cost) at a beachside restaurant to get to know each other and learn more about the tour.
If you are planning on attending the festival or the Colombia tour, we can help book the flights with our friends at Capricho Travel, who specialize in trips to Colombia, feel free to also contact Ernest in case you have any questions regarding the Festival or the Colombia trip by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
