An excellent tropical bird adventure
I just returned from this excellent birding tour. Glenn Crawford is one of the very best bird guides I have traveled with; his eyes and ears are amazingly attuned to birds, and he is very skilled (and patient) in describing a bird's location in dense tropical foliage. He is personable and quite attuned to the individual needs of participants. The two lodges where we stayed are wonderful, with friendly staff, excellent food, and terrific accommodations. People considering the tour should know in advance that tropical woodland birding is CHALLENGING, as these birds tend towards the secretive and furtive, and yes, there are mosquitoes sometimes. But the birding is rewarding, and around the lodges there are some fantastic birds that are easily seen and photographed. There are a couple of pleasant boating excursions that add variety to the trip. I had a wonderful tour experience and recommend this trip highly.
