  • Hi Omar,

    Im a pretty good birder, but Omar Diaz spotted at least 200 species that I probably would have overlooked! He knows his birds by sight and sound and is very passionate about his chosen profession.

    My Dad is not a birder but was extremely impressed by how well organized and professional the trip was. Thanks Omar and Americo!

    I hope you and your family are doing well.

    Regards Ken Simonite
