Chris Kehoe

Chris Kehoe is nowadays based in his home town of Liverpool, England after living for many years in northeast England.

Perhaps uniquely for a bird tour leader, he holds a masters degree in Renaissance literature. However, since childhood, birding has always been Chris’s passion and his travels in search of birds have taken him to numerous countries on all seven continents since the mid-1980s, when his first major overseas foray took him on a four month birding trip to India and Nepal.

A highly experienced tour leader, Chris has led groups and travelled extensively in many countries, including many parts of Europe, Morocco, much of Asia (from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia southwards to India, the Malay Peninsula and Borneo), large parts of Africa, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea, Costa Rica and Cuba.

Chris is a member of the British Ornithologists’ Union Records Committee and sits on the editorial board of British Birds magazine, where his keen interest in bird identification, taxonomy and distribution is put to good use.
