About Alexander Alvarado
Alexander Alvarado grew up in Copan Ruinas on the western part of Honduras, he became interested in birds many years ago when he was working for Hotel Posada Real de Copan located in this Mayan City. Years later he got a job at Macaw Mountain, a Bird Park and Nature Reserve located near Copan and that was his first experience rescuing birds… an open window for his passion!
On 2006 he started investigating Honduran birds in different habitats traveling all over the country, after considering the great diversity of species of birds he began offering birding tours locally in Copan Ruinas. His tours were mainly morning hikes in the Copan river area and the surroundings of Hacienda San Lucas.
In the years that followed, he became part of training courses for birding into different places all over the country, his experience with birds made Honduran birders vote him President of the Honduran Ornithological Association in 2013. He continues to work with the association and with birders from across the globe.
