Where are parrots the most diverse?

Parrots and their kin are widespread throughout the warmer parts of the globe, but Australia easily takes the prize for the greatest diversity of these beautiful and fascinating birds. These boldly pink Galahs photographed by 2016 participant Bill Byers are just one of 35 species of Cockatoos and Old World Parrots possible on Part One of our Australia tour alone, ranging in size from the dainty Budgerigars and lorikeets to the big black-cockatoos of several species. Part Two brings yet a different set of species!

Guides Chris Benesh and Jesse Fagan return to guide our Australia Part One tour this fall, October 9-29, 2017, while John Coons and Tom Johnson return to guide Part Two, October 27-November 1, 2017. There is still one space available one each part as of this writing. If you'd like to join Chris and Jesse or Tom and John (or do both parts!) for this extravaganza of parrots and much more, contact our office.

Don't forget also to view our 2016 illustrated Part One triplist or Part Two triplist for a taste of last year's tours. They are full of interesting annotations and of great images from participants and guides alike.
