Welcome to WINGS Birding Tours

Welcome to the WINGS website. We hope you find these pages informative—and that you enjoy the stunning photographs provided by our leaders and clients.

WINGS tours are labors of love, the brainchildren of our leaders who have usually spent months, in many cases even years, exploring their favorite regions. The itineraries represent their sense of the best places to take groups birding, filtered through the pragmatic screen of our local ground agents and the WINGS office. The results, we believe, are tours that are full of birds, educational, safe, and (most importantly) a lot of fun.

Our tours are organized around birds and birding, of course, but not all of them are intended for the monomaniac. Our “whole landscape” tours—featuring birds and music, birds and history, birds and art, and so on—appeal particularly to people with a wide range of interests, and are especially attractive to couples where one traveling companion is less seriously devoted to birding than the other.

We know that no text or image can ever convey the actual experience of a trip with WINGS. If you haven’t had a chance to travel with us yet, we’ll be happy to put you in touch with others who have. And if you’ve never been on a birding tour before, you might want to read our essay “Choosing a Birding Tour.”
