Birdwatching (also known as birding) has become hugely popular in recent years, even ranking above day hiking as a popular activity in the National Survey on Recreation and the Environment conducted by the U.S. Forest Service.
More and more, birders are traveling abroad to experience sought-after avian species. So Vantage has crafted several of our adventures to feature a captivating collection of birds. Plus, expert naturalists are along to point out the most impressive species – especially the ones that are hardest to spot.
