Avocet & Peregrine is a hardcore birding company. We conduct guided birding day trips and birding stays while you bird in Goa ranging from a leisurely lazy pace to almost a drop-dead marathon birding! We curate bird watching tours to the best-known birding hotspots of Goa such as Bondla, Carambolim, Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Zuari River beside the lesser-known but productive birding hotspots such as Bhagwan Mahaveer National Park (Molem / Tambdi Surla), Curtorim Wetlands, Cotigao, Netravali, and Socorro Plateau. With Avocet & Peregrine, you will bird with the very best where our guides are top-ranked eBirders in the State. We do trips beyond Goa – to the best birding hide in the country at the Old Magazine House at Ganeshgudi / Dandeli and conduct expeditions for birding, elephants, and tigers in Karnataka with Jungle Lodges & Resorts.
We have a combined experience of 25 years of birding and have been commercially birding for the last 4 years. We have pioneered, explored, and mapped new birding trails, many of which are followed on our bird walks with our clients. Our clients come from a wide geographical spectrum ranging from the United States, Canada, France, Britain, Russia, Uganda, Kazakhstan, UAE, Australia, and Singapore besides clients from across India. For the community, Avocet & Peregrine is associated with bird rescue, environmental affirmative action through the Biodiversity Action Network of Goa (BANG), curating a 20,000 strong Birds of Goa and the 6000 strong Wildlife of Goa Facebook groups. Savio Fonseca of Avocet & Peregrine has co-authored the highly acclaimed Photographic Guide to the Birds of Goa and is a member of the Committee compiling the Goa State Biodiversity Strategy & Action Plan for the Government of Goa.
