Welcome to Birdquest


We are always interested in recruiting exceptional bird tour leaders. Potential candidates need to be very experienced birders with a thorough knowledge of a minimum of 8 Birdquest tour itineraries, at least 6 of which are outside Europe or North America.

Extensive existing experience guiding bird tours will be an advantage.

Naturally, a very high level of field skills and considerable knowledge of the relevant avifaunas, as well as excellent logistical and inter-personal skills, are essential requirements.

We are particularly interested in recruiting additional guides with extensive Afrotropical, Australasian or Neotropical expertise, but we also have openings for leaders with experience elsewhere.

Applicants must be in a position to guide a minimum of 2 - 3 tours for us annually.

If you are potentially interested in joining the top team, contact Mark Beaman on his direct email address at markasbeaman@gmail.com

Be sure to include details of which Birdquest tour itineraries you already know well, as well as all other relevant birding knowledge and experience.

(If you do not already know at least 5 Birdquest tour itineraries well, including at least 3 outside Europe or North America, please do not contact us until you meet this minimum qualification.)

All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
