Bird Species in Suasie 2018-10-08T10:47:53-05:00

Bird tourism is one of the main (but not unique) attractions at Finca Suasie. Amateur and professional visitors involved with bird tourism have the opportunity to find exotic bird species in their natural habitat, as well as those already known in other regions across the country.

Avitourists will have a bird species watching list updated by ornithologists in the field with which to identify their best bird photos. With the growing demand in bird tourism nationally and globally, Finca Suasie aims to offer interested parties a fresh proposal in Colombia tourism of observation walks, full of nature and contemplation.

While some of the bird species can be observed in the vicinity of the lodge, most of them, including the most exotic ones, are found in the surrounding forests. It is there where we invite our guests and birders to tour and observe bird species in the quiet of their environment.

“Finca Suasie” is located within the “Rio Blanco” and “Rio Negro” Natural Reserve, its primary forests and its great water resources are the home and food source of more than 90 species of birds, endemic, almost endemic and some migratory that go touring other areas of the country. Some of them park on the farm and then take the biological corridor to Chingaza Park.

Among the most important species we have the Phyrrhura Callyptera, Andigena Nigrirostris or toucan bird, the Trogón Personatus, among others more that you can observe in our checklist of birds and whose identification was made by the University of the Andes, the ABO and Lizeth Burbano, Victor Rivera, Javier Hidalgo and Diego Ochoa.

A list of all the birds identified to 2017 in Finca Suasie lands. Thanks to the Research Group of the University of the Andes to the ABO (Bird Association of Bogotá) and to the ornithologists Lizeth Burbano, Victor Rivera, Javier Hidalgo and Diego Ochoa.
