Took a 12-day birding trip to Cuba with Whitehawk Birding. Cuba is not an easy place for Americans to visit and Whitehawk excelled at organizing the trip, local guides, accommodations, etc. We were able to see every single viable endemic bird in the 12 days--and 178 species in total. This was a custom trip we requested--yet the pricing was comparable... More

I had a wonderful first birdwatching experience in Ladakh, India with Whitehawk birding! It was my first time birdwatching and Marta was a fantastic guide who shared her passion, experience, and extensive knowledge with me to make it a memorable day. I also really enjoyed the company of her partners and connections in Ladakh who were welcoming, thoughtful, and excited... More

My wife and I visited Panama in December 2016 on a 9-day birding/nature trip. We arrived in Panama a day ahead of meeting our main group, and we arranged with Whitehawk to see some sights and natural areas around Panama City before then. These were the Metropolitan Natural Park, the Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal, and Gatun Lake. The... More

Fantastic tour utilizing the skill and knowledge of local Cuban biologists, botanists and illustrators. We stayed in delightful casas particulares where we received excellent service. Great food. Beautiful scenery. And habitats. We found all possible Cuban endemics (24) and approximately 14 regional endemics with a total list of over 170 species (possibly 181- still organizing and tallying!) Great group fellow... More

We joined two other couples for an 11 day people-to-people trip to Cuba with a strong emphasis on birdwatching. I cannot say enough good things about how this company coordinated everything, made sure the trip went smoothly, and took care of all the details. We had great success finding all the endemics with the help of very strong local guides.... More

Edwin and Angel picked us up at our airport hotel. We first went to Metropolitan Park, an urban oasis in the middle of Panama City. We saw a white-necked puffbird, three kinds of hummingbirds, a pair of collared aracaris at their nest, keel-billed toucans, woodpeckers, and a lovely female lance-tailed manakin. We then spent a very educational 90 minutes at... More

We just returned from a 10 day trip to Panama which was fanatastic, made more so by 3 great days of birding with Whitehawk. From our initial contact with Marta, who co-ordinated everything through email, to meeting Angel and Edwin on the ground in Panama, this is a first class outfit. We spent 2 days birding the El Valle area... More

Contacted Whitehawk Birding in advance of our cruise ship being in Cadiz for the day end of October 2016. Javi Ellloriaga picked us up right at the dock and took us to the salt pans about 45 minutes north of the port. We spent the day with him birding for local birds, and late migrants (50+ species).
