Birding in exotic locations can be quite expensive, and the idea of managing a trip on our own can be quite daunting.
I want to provide helpful tips on how to bird different destinations on a budget. 

I’m sharing my stories of budget birding travel in a fun and engaging attempt to encourage others to travel and bird without spending a small fortune! I hope this blog is fun to read, insightful, and logistically helpful!  


UPDATE:
We just returned from Guatemala! We spent 2 months birding and exploring this amazing country and I am excited to share our stories and travel tips with you!

About me

I’m not buyin’ it.
I don’t want to live my whole life in the same town, work a job I despise, then die. I’m all about doing what you can to live life to the best of your abilities. And for us, that means doing things on the cheap!

I’ve been a serious birder since the day I went on my first Audubon field trip at 12 years old. That day I had the epiphany that you can go on a trip with the sole motive of seeking birds instead of waiting for them to come to your yard. Ever since then, I have been trying to travel wherever I can to see new birds.

Now, I’m living in a remodeled RV (it’s stationary) with my wife Stephanie. As you can guess, we are all about traveling cheap and getting the most out of an experience. That is what I’m here for; to share our tips and travel stories about birding on a budget.
