Custom Tours

  • While our focus is on birding in north-central Colorado in spring, summer & fall, we can modify one of our existing day trip Tour Options or create a custom multi-day tour for you or your small group.
  • A number of factors go into creating a custom birding tour including travel times (Colorado is a big state!), group size, trip length, likelihood of finding specific target birds, potential weather conditions at the requested time of year, and more.  We will respond as quickly as we can about the feasibility of your request.
  • Does your organization want to offer a group tour to Colorado?  We can help you with the planning and logistics and co-lead your group with you.

To request a custom tour, please complete the form below. The more you can tell us about your interests and needs, the better we can respond.

You can also reach us by phone at: (720) 588-9667 or by email



"As Executive Director of Seven Ponds Nature Center in Lapeer County, Michigan, I contacted Carl about six months ago to inquire about his interest in working with a tour group from Michigan for an extended tour in June of 2017. Carl was very enthusiastic, and within a week of exchanging emails we had worked out the tour details and itinerary. In the ensuing weeks and months leading up to the tour, Carl was a consummate professional, seeing to every detail, making valuable suggestions, and raising questions about issues I hadn't even considered. He made the process easy and smooth, and at no time was I anything less than fully confident that Carl was the absolute right choice for our tour. 

When it came time for the actual birding, Carl was phenomenal. He got our group on dozens of excellent birds, working very hard to ensure we saw as many of our "target" species as possible. Every person in our group relayed to me how much they enjoyed birding with Carl and how they valued his efforts. Truly, he went above and beyond for our group - before, during, and after. 

Thanks to Carl Bendorf and Colorado Birding Adventures - highly recommended without hesitation!

Feel free to contact me if you have questions about my experiences working and birding with Carl -"
