When is the best time to go birding in Puerto Rico?  BIRDING PUERTO RICO ANSWERS THE QUESTION.
Your host will be Hilda Morales,
a Certified Interpretive Tour
Guide and owner of Birding
Puerto Rico and AdvenTours,
with 23 years of experience
leading islandwide birding trips.
We are a fully-licensed company
with special permits to offer bird
watching and night hikes at El
Yunque National Forest.

Let Hilda´s eyes and ears guide
you at our most beloved jewel.
When is the best time to go birding to Puerto Rico?

The best time of the year to go birding to El Yunque will be
from October through April.  El Yunque National Forest will
be totally crowded from May through August when locals
visit the Forest.  Also, birds are not so active during that
period of time. September is the peak season for hurricanes.
PUERTO RICO BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY - EL YUNQUE NATIONAL FOREST
All birding trips are weather
permissible. especially during the
Summer and Hurricane Season.
Due to the number of people visiting El Yunque National Forest during the Holy Week/Weekend (Wednesday through Sunday, including
Good Friday and Easter) and the
month of July, we DO NOT OFFER tours to El Yunque other than the Night Hike and/or Ancestral Areyto.
Access to the Forest is limited and we cannot guarantee the quality on those days.

NIGHT OWLING
.
El Yunque is one of the best spots when you want to find as many endemics
as possible in only one birding site.  
What to see?  Lizard Cuckoo, Flycatcher,
Tanager, Woodpecker, Spindalis, Oriole, Emerald, Green Mango, Screech Owl,
Tody, and Bullfinch.  
Rare endemics seen in our previous birding trips are the
Elfin-woods Warbler,
Parrot, Vireo, Yellow-shouldered Blackbird, and
Adelaide´s Warbler.
 Other near endemic species are:  Antillean Euphonia,
Loggerhead Kingbird, and Lesser Antillean Pewee (rare at the Forest).

From December through February with have an optional half-day birding trip,
Mt. Britton Birding Trip
. This alternative includes Mt. Britton Trail (.8 mile), which
is a challenging trail (often wet and slippery); since we are going birding, it will
take us longer to reach the mountain.  Please ask for price for this option.

You can spend a full-day at El Yunque or combine the half-day with the Colibrí
Quest (below) or the Eastern Coastal Dry Forest
(Ceiba Forest).

What is the Colibrí Quest?  The Colibrí Quest was designed with hummingbird
lovers in mind.  This is the best opportunity to see the five hummers that nest in
Puerto Rico in a short time frame:
 Puerto Rican Emerald, Puerto Rican Green
Mango, Antillean Mango, Antillean Crested Hummingbird, and Green-throated
Carib.  

Where we go?  We start birding on the boundaries of El Yunque National Forest
where we will be looking for the Emerald and Green Mango.  Tthen, we go to the
Forest, and then, to the eastern tip of Puerto Rico.  

Best time to see them?  They will always be around, but he best time to look for
them is September through April.  This birding trip is an excellent option for
cruise ship passengers since we can start at any time of the day, up to 1:00 PM.  
Your ship should be leaving not earlier than 10:00 PM.
This is the original Hummingbird
Quest Route created by Hilda Morales!
BIRDING IN PUERTO RICO - Screech Owls at El Yunque National Forest
As of December 1, 2014, Night Owling at El Yunque National Forest will now be
offered from
October through March.   New regulations at the Forest allow us to
be there up to 50 minutes after sunset.  During selected months, we don´t have to
wait until late to look for it and spend less time at the Forest.
