Whether it's an easy stroll along the Colorado River, a dawn-to-dusk marathon around the Salton Sea, or a quest to ID a dozen species of hummingbirds, we'll design a custom tour exclusively for you and help you find the birds you're seeking.  If you'd like, we'll take you to bubbling, gurggling mud pots, spectacular wildflower displays, beguiling reptiles, and unique historical sites!

We design our custom tours around you, and would be happy to show you the hot spots in Southern California: San Diego County; the Salton Sea and the Imperial Valley; and the Laguna, San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains. In Arizona we'll take you along the Colorado River Valley, around Yuma, the Central Valley and Phoenix, the Tucson area, the "high islands" of southeastern Arizona, and the border canyons along the Mexican frontier.

Good Birding!
