Birds & Nature Tours Portugal is the longest established Portuguese company specifically dedicated to birds and birding tours. We are the local operator for most of the main North American and European birdwatching tour companies and are passionate in our determination to deliver an unrivalled and fulfilling experience (please check TripAdvisor for client comments and reviews of their experiences on our tours).
Birds & Nature offers you a wide variety of programmes, including guided birding and bird photography tours, mainly in Portugal & Spain, our geographical area of expertise.
The brainchild of João Jara, Birds & Nature was born of the need that he recognized for a quality birding enterprise in Portugal, to bring people to birds, at all levels of interest and dedication.
The company was launched at the beginning of 2008 and is owned and managed by João, who also guides many of the tours (10 other guides work regularly with the company).

Though our company focuses on birds and birding, we see this activity as an integral part of a greater pursuit, namely the observation of nature in all its facets, hence our company's name, Birds & Nature Tours Portugal.
The company’s logo is the Eurasian Hoopoe, a uniquely distinctive bird that typifies the warmth, character and colour of the larger Mediterranean region which both Portugal and Birds & Nature share.
Birds & Nature has, as part of its mission, a commitment to contribute to nature and biodiversity conservation; this objective is at the forefront of every activity we organise. However, we want to go beyond that and are developing specific projects in this area.
