Birds you've dreamed of seeing, incredible places, a bit of adventure,
and fun. It's what Zugunruhe Birding Tours is all about.
We bring you innovative tours that no one else can duplicate — the only
tours to Attu and St. Matthew, the
only dedicated pelagic trips in Alaska, the only trips
with excellent chances of seeing Short-tailed Albatross,
and the most and best options for Whiskered Auklet. And
we're always on the lookout for new opportunities. We pioneered fall
tours to Barrow for Ross's Gulls, and we're adding new
tours for 2014. In March, we'll be visiting Hawaii to attempt to see all
of the remaining endemic landbirds on the main islands.
May 25-June 8, 2014 We are the first
and only company since 2000 to offer a spring tour to Attu,
the westernmost Aleutian island and
the best place to see Asian
vagrants in North America.
Alaskan Seabirds We have several tours that
can get you Alaska's special seabirds:
Pelagic June 8-11, 2014 All of our boat-based trips
in the Aleutians are excellent for finding Short-tailed
Albatrosses, but this one is head and shoulders above them
all. It's also one of the best for Whiskered Auklets.
Whiskered Auklets for Landlubbers June 12-15, 2014 Want
to see Whiskered Auklets and other pelagic species
but don't want to spend a long time on a boat? This is the tour for
Island cruise July 1-8, 2014
St. Matthew Island, a seldom-visited island in the Bering Sea, is
one of the few places in the world where the beautiful
McKay's Bunting breeds. We depart Dutch Harbor and end at
St. Paul, so there will be plenty of seabirds along the way:
Whiskered Auklet, Red-leggedKittiwake,
good chances for Short-tailed Albatross and
Mottled Petrel, plus many alcid species.
The Ross's Gull Tour: Barrow, Alaska Oct 4-8, 2014 Join us
and the American Birding Association as we look for some of the
magical birds of the Arctic. Our main target is Ross's Gull,
but we also look for Ivory Gull, Snowy Owl,
Spectacled Eider, and more. We've even seen polar bears,
five in 2012 and 3 in 2013.
