Birding Tour Mongolia: Bird Specialties in Taiga and Gobi 2017



Welcome to our Birding Tour Mongolia, a birding and wildlife photography tour in some remote areas from the Siberian taiga through the high Altai Mountains to the Gobi desert.

Mongolia is one of the hottest birding sites in Asia. You can see a wide variety of birds in different natural habitats during this trip, driving in excellent company and with professional guides through splendid landscapes from Siberian taiga forest to the steppe in the country made famous by the Great Genghis Khan. Take this opportunity to make your dreams come true, seeing raptors such as Saker Falcon, Upland Buzzard, Amur Falcon, and Pallas’s Fish Eagle, but also Siberian Rubythroat, Black-billed Capercaillie, Henderson’s Ground Jay, and Altai Snowcock.

Our targets in the different habitats are the following: In the Mongolian steppe Demoiselle Crane, Saker Falcon, Amur Falcon, Mongolian Lark, Oriental Plover, and Upland Buzzard, in the boreal forest of the taiga Siberian Rubythroat, Red-flanked Bluetail, Pine Bunting, Black billed Capercaillie, and Chinese Bush Warbler, in the wetlands White-naped Crane, Asian Dowitcher, Swan Goose, and migratory stints, and in the Gobi desert Altai Snowcock, Kozlov’s Accentor, Henderson’s Ground Jay, and Asian Desert Warbler. In addition we might also see gray wolf, Mongolian gazelle, Siberian ibex, and argali (mountain sheep).

What our clients say

We spent three weeks with Andy in Thailand and enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Andy worked so hard to find the birds, and get us on them.  He was very patient and took the time we needed. He knew all the best places to go, knew what birds would be expected, identified them in an instant  and still managed to find some pretty good rarities along with the “known birds”, Himalayan Cutia anyone? And we spent literally hours getting great looks at Spoon-billed Sandpiper.  Andy got us very close without disturbing the birds or any other birders.  It was a highlight of the trip.  We are hoping to see Andy in York later this year for a days birding on his home patch!
