I honestly feel like that trip changed me, both as a birder and philosophically. Can’t say that about most birding outings!

Just a quick note as we leave the Bay area. We had a great time running around on Thursday. Not just the birds, but the areas we visited were great. The company wasn’t half bad either  ;  )
Thanks for accommodating Kathy on her lunch request, it spot was perfect.

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip into the wilds of Belize. The trip was the right length and it was everything you said it be. Lodges and food was great. I thought you were a wonderful tour leader: calm, under control easy to get along with. Adding Tikal was the right idea too. What a perfect birding spot. I will recommend your birding tours to anyone when I have a chance.

What makes a great birding tour? An experienced leader who is familiar with the locale and the birds. The trip is reasonably priced | 4-6 people maximum | Pre-trip information from the leader. | A leader who is flexible and willing to change locales as needed | Excellent local guides. | Local culture focus in addition to birds. | Photographer friendly, you get time for your shots.
I am a beginning birder and picked up 130 new species. The other member of the trip was very experienced and was also very satisfied with the trip. I look forward to more trips with Rich.

Belize & tikal
I really enjoyed the March 3rd, 2020 Belize trip with Yellow Billed tours. I have been on three trips with Rich so far and each one has widened my Photography and Birding experiences. Rich really has a talent for enabling the small group to ebb and flow with excitement and communicate the birds location so I can get many photos. I especially enjoyed our visits to Crooked Tree, Cockscomb and Tikal.  I am primarily a Photographer so Rich acknowledges that the group might move on a bit as I capture a bird with several different angles and exposures.  This helps me accomplish my goals. Thanks Rich for your friendship and your excellent tours.

Katy and I enjoyed Belize. We agree that it was a successful trip – good birds and entertaining company. I’m working my way through the ebird lists you sent me, thank you for supplying the check list so quickly. The woodcreepers/tanagers at the army ant column was one of many birding highlights and we enjoyed our conversations with Santiago and Dominic at the ranch.

We had a great time, for all kinds of reasons.  There was the 3 condor, of course, but also the beautiful national park and the interesting drive getting there.
  Plus, most importantly, the fabulous experience of meeting a really knowledgeable birder who didn’t want to talk about birds 100% of the time!

I want to thank you for the wonderful birding tour of Marin County. The Bald Eagle and Ash-throated Flycatcher were amazing. The Violet-green Swallows and Orange-crown Warbler sighting were exciting.

Nome will always be a memorable field trip with 27 life birds. Both Ptarmigans species were my favorite birds, but five Rough-legged Hawks was a surprise. I recommend Yellowbilled Tours, Rich know where the birds were on my check list.
His knowledge of the road system with key hot spots kept the four days very interesting.
