MOS Sponsored Birding Trips

The MOS launched a member benefit that has received enthusiastic response: birding trips to some of the great hotspots in the world. We’re concentrating on the Americas right now, but we can expand to anywhere members might wish. And your wishes are important. If there is a spot you’ve always wanted to visit, let us know (contact Maryanne Dolan). We’ll do our best to gather enough like-minded birders to make the trip viable. With Covid coming under control, it’s time to spread our wings a bit and look for birding spots outside the mid-Atlantic region.

2022 TRIPS

Several great trips are on the calendar for 2022

It’s time!  Time to start thinking of nicer weather and good birding.  And it’s also time to think about heading south in search of neotropics.

There are still a few slots open for Panama: April 29 to May 9, 2022.  We will be staying at the famous Canopy Towers and Canopy Lodge, returning for most lunches and all dinners so there is always ample opportunity to opt out of a field trip and spend a quiet few hours bringing your list up-to-date, or simply strolling the grounds.  Cost is $2,764 per person with $550 single occupancy. A non-refundable deposit of $600 is required to hold a reservation.  The price includes all meals including soft drinks/water and snacks while in the field, and local transportation.  Excluded is airfare, liquor, personal items (laundry, etc.)  and tips.  Contact me ( for a detailed itinerary and information on where to send the deposit.

August 5-14, 2022 will see us in Colombia and birding the Central Andes.  With over 1900 avian species, Colombia is a birder’s paradise.  Cost is $2725 with a single supplement of $385.  A deposit of $200 is required to hold a slot and is not refundable after May 1.   A detailed itinerary and lots of other information is available at Holbrook Travel and MOS.

As always, any suggestions, comments and/or recommendations are welcome.  Just drop me a note at
