Bird diversity and beautiful environments The diversity of environments visited and the birding 'extras' like watching banding at Long Point. Algonquin was a pleasant addition because of the beauty of the environment and the rarity of the birds

They made sure we saw a wide variety of birds and were all safe even though keeping the guests separated from the general public was hard work.

Not always easy but oh, so much fun! This trip is great if you understand just how hard owls are to find. We traveled down countless farm roads. Being with other experienced birders was very helpful as we all understood the difficulty of spotting them. The best part was everything else we saw. Going out after dark to simply listen... read more

South Texas Trip was AMAZING The company was great. Two strengths stand out. The guides and the pre-tour support information. Only area for improvement would be notifying participants once the group minimum has been reached to ensure the trip goes foreward.

Oaxaca to Villahermosa in 14 days We had a great guide and driver leading a small group (7) of birders. All information given to us by Eagle Eye prior to the tour was reasonably accurate and helpful. The tour was well organized and gave value for the money.
