Dominican Republic Birding Tours
The Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation, straddling the eastern half of arguably the most beautiful of all the large Caribbean islands, Hispaniola. Hispaniola boasts an impressive variety of endemic and range-restricted birds, including six endemic genera and the monotypic Palmchat, the sole representative of its own bird family! Our comprehensive Dominican Republic birding tour is co-led by the nation’s top birder and takes us through all the habitats necessary to target the island’s specialties, from dry thorn scrub to montane pine forest. Some of our numerous targets include a dedicated search for the rare Ridgway’s Hawk, as well as Ashy-faced Owl, Least Poorwill, White-fronted Quail-Dove, Hispaniolan Amazon, Hispaniolan Parakeet, Bay-breasted Cuckoo, beautiful Broad-billed and Narrow-billed Todies, Hispaniolan Trogon, Hispaniolan Woodpecker, Hispaniolan Emerald, White-necked Crow, White-winged Warbler and Hispaniolan Crossbill.
