Be Your Own Birder

Giveaway Time – Galapagos Birds!

The Galapagos Islands is home to more than 40 endemic bird species, and along with its other amazing wildlife, is a dream destination for birders. Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to restrict travel (though Ecuador has resumed some tourist travel, subject to proper precautions), many birders aren’t able to visit. Furthermore, the difficulties of planning a South American trip to an isolated and heavily protected region, not to mention the cost, can make birding in the Galapagos an extreme challenge. But you don’t have to leave your home to enjoy the birds of these marvelous islands – it’s time for a Galapagos giveaway!

    I always wanted to go to the Galapagos. One day as I was leading a bird tour, a boy, about 12 years old, told me that he had just come back from the Galapagos. I told him it was my dream. He told me that it wasn’t as good as he thought it would be. The water was so cold he had to wear a wetsuit and the birds were all brown! He told me his new favorite birding spot is anywhere in the United States. Until he sees all the birds of the US he won’t enjoy anywhere else.

    The Galapagos would be at the top of my list. I have a degree in zoology and am fascinated by Darwin’s study of the island species.

    I would absolutely love to bird the Galápagos Islands.
    That would be so awesome. When I first started bird watching. That was one that always wanted to visit! Whoot whoot❤️

    It’s hard to pick just one place. I love a new sighting in my own yard! I love to travel but discovering a new visitor is the beas!

      Wish we had more rather than the usual suspects here. The other side of our lake has colorful birds, us, not so much but I enjoy ours and feed.
