"Birding is popular due in part to its simplicity," says Simon Thompson of Ventures Birding Tours. He leads small groups of naturalists and birders on trips in the US and throughout the world. Destinations include the Peruvian Amazon, Belize, Galapagos, Greece, France, England and Australia. Ventures also runs daytrips throughout North and South Carolina and offers weekends and longer trips to many of the top birding sites throughout the US. Birding... you just have to listen.
