The Andean Birder is more than a birdwatching tours company, is a history of how local people can find a life opportunity in a passion.
We are a group of birders who emerged from local and community processes on environmental education, research, birding promoting, community tourism and nature conservation.
Our main conviction is:
Tourism must contribute to the development of local communities and therefore to protection of biodiversity.
We design flexible and customizable birding and nature trips for every type of nature enthusiast. We are convinced that high-quality tours can be possible at an affordable cost. Over 8 years we’ve guided and organized tours. As professional guides, we know every aspect that makes a trip, a successful experience.
Johnnier is the main tour leader and manager of The Andean Birder. He is in charge of the trip’s design and the main operational processes of the company.

Shtid is our regional guide for the Los Llanos (Eastern Plains) region of Colombia. He has spent several years exploring this region, designing new birding routes, and promoting bird conservancy and knowledge to local communities.
