In fact scroll down on this page to the News section to see a video about this tour and to learn about our future plans for booking a Field Sketching tour.
Our 2016 Colombia Central Endemics tour was such a success that we decided to formulate a tour for 2017! The Majestic Feathers Northern and Central Colombia Endemics tour dates are June 29 to July 15, 2017. The full detials will be posted soon, please check back.
We are taking a big leap to a new continent! Our inaugural Birding and Wildlife adventure in Bhutan is scheduled for April of 2018. Some details are available on our Bhutan page and the full details will be published soon.
Majestic Feathers tours appeal to the kind of birder that understands that birds are not on your schedule, they are on theirs and if you want to see them you must engage like an adventurer.

THE ADVANTAGES OF CHOOSING A MAJESTIC FEATHERS TOUR:
- Tour routes are designed based on life zones, resulting in diverse exciting birding.
- Our local guides have an intimate knowledge of the habitat and the birds to be found within it.
- Local guides + local connections = better rates at lodges = an affordable tour price.
- You will learn about the ecology, natural history, and culture of the country you are touring.
- Grassroots Advertising (word of mouth and social media networking) = low overhead expenses which also aids in keeping tour prices affordable.
- The Biggest Advantage! A portion of your tour fee is donated to the Elvira Foundation NGO for forest restoration, watershed protection and eco-education in the La Paz Valley, Costa Rica. Please see our Giving Back Page for more information.
Please note that we occasionally utilize the services of travel agencies and this is an exception rather than the rule. 97% of the time we work directly with local in-country connections. Our goal continues to be, to provide our guests with a high quality tour at an affordable price.
THE MAJESTIC FEATHERS FEATURED VIDEO:
Video Short Film featuring a Sword-billed Hummingbird (Ensifera ensifera) seen in Colombia on the 2016 Central Endemics tour. Duration: .12
This Sword-billed Hummingbird was seen on day 2 of the Majestic Feathers® Central Endemics Colombia tour in 2016. The Sword-billed primarily feeds on nectar taken from a variety of brightly colored, small flowers of trees, herbs, shrubs and epiphytes. They favor flowers with the highest sugar content (often red ones that are tubular-shaped.) They are highly aggressive in protecting them. The Sword-billed is the only species of bird in the world with a bill longer than its body! They are found in the montane forests in the Andes of S. America from Venezula to Bolivia. Majestic Feathers® is going to Colombia again in 2017!
