A list of British birding tour companies and the time of year of their Argentina bird tours.

Kolibri Expeditons
Kolibri Expeditons based in Lima, Peru has low budget birding trips to all corners of South America. All trips are off the beaten track to search for endemics and specialties of the particular area. There is usually a bias on quality of unique birds rather than overall numbers. The trips are hard-core. You need to be fairly fit as there may be walks for some exclusive endemics involved. You need also be prepared for less comfortable lodging in rural areas and in some cases camping. However, most of the time in these areas instead of putting up tents, they will use roadside restaurants which let us put our mattresses on the floor.

Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT)
Founded in 1974, it is now the largest company in the world specializing in birding tours.

All WINGS leaders have varied interests in natural history and other more or less closely related fields, but the timing and itinerary of our trips are dictated almost entirely by ornithological considerations.
