About Birds and the National Aviary

Colombia houses 20% of the world's bird diversity, having more bird species than any other country. With over 1900 species currently living there, Colombia owes its bird biodiversity to the different ecosystems, warm weather, and leafy vegetation that create a comfortable environment for these creatures.

The National Aviary in Colombia is located on Baru Island, an hour away from Cartagena city. This organization displays and preserves bird species in a natural environment, and teaches tourists and locals about Colombia's fauna and how to care for birds responsibly.

Some of the stunning bird species you can find in Colombia, include:

  • Trogon

  • Quetzal

  • Red-headed Barbet

  • Thick-billed Euphonia
