Global Big Day Colombia Tour
Global Big Day 2018 organized by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is around the corner and we want to celebrate it by inviting you to the birding experience of a lifetime! Join Icaro Birding’s Global Big Day Colombia Tour and let’s be part of “birding history” as we support Colombia’s efforts to revalidate its Global Big Day 2017, 24-hour birding world record of 1,486 bird species recorded on ebird.org. With your support, we can get past the 1,500 mark. And your contribution? Birding the mythical Montezuma Road in the Choco Bioregion of Colombia, we will bird from dawn ’till dusk to try to record at least 120 species that day.
