Please note: to follow modern nomenclature and systematics, we have adopted the IOC World Bird List, Version 10.1 (2020) for all our itineraries. Occasionally we may use the British (English) Vernacular name in certain circumstances. The IOC World Bird List contains the world’s bird names as published by the International Ornithological Congress (IOC). See http://www.worldbirdnames.org/ for more details.
