The Ultimate In Birding Tours

Eustace Barnes

Eustace Barnes lives in Yorkshire, England with his partner Diana and son Jasper.  A professional ornithologist and artist, specializing in the Neotropics, Eustace developed an interest in birds and wildlife art at an early age. He began birding on the North Kent Marshes and nearby France before heading off to Spain and Turkey as a teenager.

At university Eustace studied Geography and subsequently moved to Peru where he worked at Explorer’s Inn in the Amazon as a Resident Naturalist and developed an interest in antbirds and bird vocalizations. While based in Peru, Eustace spent much time over many years in the field, visiting remote areas, poorly known to this day, throughout South America.

It was in here he met Barry Walker in Cusco and together worked on developing birding tours in Peru and Bolivia.

Eustace has also travelled extensively Asia, Australasia and Africa, spending much time in the Himalayas, especially Bhutan, and also in Sichuan.

Eustace has worked on a number of publishing projects including Pigeons and Doves of the World (2001), The Bowerbirds (2004) and Cotingas and Manakins (2011). His next project is a new Guide to the Birds of the Machu Picchu National Sanctuary in Southern Peru with Barry Walker.
