Bird Festival Puerto Vallarta

Everybody has wished they could fly like a bird at some time in their lives. Some have taken their love for these beautiful beings further to study them, their habitats and working towards their conversation. Then there are others who simply marvel at the beauty yet simplicity of our winged friends. For all bird lovers, the best opportunity to enjoy the most species at one place is around the corner. Welcome to the International Vallarta Birding festival! Officially to be held from the 6th to 9th of March, the tours and workshops will be available all through from February 28th to March 16th 2014.

Come and be spellbound by the flutter of over 300 species nestled in the beauty of the Banderas Bay region of Mexico. Hosted at the Vallarta Botanical gardens, the visual feast will be accompanied by lectures and tours by the key speaker for the festival Greg Homel among others. Greg is not only an ornithologist but also an international award winning photojournalist, a lecturer and a documentary film producer. Some of the other eminent tour leaders will include the bird photographer Paul Hart; the co founder of the East Cascades Bird Conservancy, Steve Shunk; the founder of Bird Land, Manuel Grosselet who is also certified by the North American Bird Banding Council as a bander and trainer; and marine biologists, Fernando Romo Sirvent and Luis Morales among others.

Come and join them as they act as your guides during the festival introducing you to some of the 300 species that have made Banderas Bay their home. Bring your loved ones with you to the spectacular tropical forests and high mountainous regions of Vallarta and spot some of the prized birds of the region. From the blue footed Boobies to the endangered Macaws, these amazing birds are sure to leave you spellbound.
