Why Chile?

Several reasons may explain your interest in visiting our country. However, seeing it simply, there are reasons originated in birds (or birding), and others that are related to the general characteristics of Chile, ranging from economic to geographic.

We know about birds, so we are aware that our country -in the field- have low diversity and few endemics if you compare with other countries. However, we have a very good reason to convince you to come to Chile and enjoy our birds. We certainly hope to do so with Birding Chile.

Chile has a singularity due a diverse environment, where you can find a remarkable contrast between species of the Andes Mountain Range -adapted to the highest lands of America- and also some magnificent pelagic birds that visit our coasts after breeding in remote places like New Zealand or Subantarctic islands. Birds that belong to the Mediterranean environment present in our country, but especially more than 70 species considered endemic to the southern cone of South America.

Finally, once you have decided to come, we invite you to review a brief set of suggestions and tips presented in an official website, so you understand what we are, and your visit to our country more easily and safely.
