International Birding

About 1,000 bird species reside or have been documented in North America, but there are roughly 10,000 bird species in the world! Many bird watchers are eager to tally   more species on their life lists, or otherwise seek to enjoy a birdy adventure in a foreign land. We hope the information on the pages below will help you plan a birding trip to an exotic destination, or at least entertain and inform you about what it’s like to go birding far from home. Please come back often: We plan to expand this section as we collect more stories and photos of birding opportunities around the world.
