Central/South America, Bhutan



Majestic Feathers offers birding tours to Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru and Bhutan. We take you to top notch birding areas around the world.

In 2018 an adventure group has booked our Peru tour exclusively for them.

We are planning to return to Costa Rica for our 9th tour there in the spring of 2019. To see some information about one of our past specialized tours scroll down the page.

Our 2016 Colombia Central Endemics tour was such a success that we decided to formulate a tour for 2018! The Majestic Feathers Northern, Western and Eastern Colombia tour. Main tour: July 21 to Aug 3, 2018 with Post Extension Aug 3 to 7, 2018. There will be loads of endemic birds to this trip! All the details are on the Colombia page.

We are taking a big leap to a new continent! Stay tuned for our inaugural Birding and Wildlife adventure in Bhutan. Our target date is 2019 in the spring.  Some brief information about that trip is on the Bhutan page.

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.

  • 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.


Two Juvenile Great Horned Owls Experience Rain for the First Time


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!

Beginning in 2017 Majestic Feathers® will offer this specialized tour by request only. A group consisting of 10 to 14 participants my request that we organize and schedule a birding and field sketching tour for them. Bird clubs, artist collectives, etc. will enjoy having us put this trip together for them. Contact us today and let’s get started on putting a tour like this together for your group! Email
