Jose is one of Colombia’s finest birdwatching and wildlife guides. A trained biologist, he has been birding in Colombia since 2001 and was a founding member of Pro Aves – Colombia’s most active and best-known bird conservation organisation. He helped establish many successful nature reserves across the country and played an integral part in the now famous and highly successful Yellow-eared Parrot Conservation Project, close to his home town of Jardin. Since 2008 Jose has guided countless birding tours to every corner of Colombia, and has gained a reputation as an outstanding guide with red-hot identification skills, while maintaining a calm and friendly manner with his clients.
