Short-tailed Albatross

 

Birds you've dreamed of seeing, incredible places, a bit of adventure, and fun. It's what Zugunruhe Birding Tours is all about.

 

We bring you innovative tours that no one else can duplicate the only tours to Attu and St. Matthew, the only dedicated pelagic trips in Alaska, the only trips with excellent chances of seeing Short-tailed Albatross, and the most and best options for Whiskered Auklet. And we're always on the lookout for new opportunities. We pioneered fall tours to Barrow for Ross's Gulls, and we're adding new tours for 2014.

 


News: 

We're adding new tours! Our newest is a week birding the Lower Rio Grande Valley of south Texas in February for only $995/person! We also have Beering and Birding - California Edition.

Attu

May 10-24 & May 24-June 7, 2015
     
We are the first and only company since 2000 to offer a spring tour to Attu, the westernmost Aleutian island and the best place to see Asian vagrants in North America.


Alaskan Seabirds
     We have several tours that can get you Alaska's special seabirds:

Aleutian Pelagic
June 7-11, 2015
     All of our boat-based trips in the Aleutians are excellent for finding Short-tailed Albatrosses, but this one is head and shoulders above them all. It's also one of the best for Whiskered Auklets.

Whiskered Auklets for Landlubbers
June 11-14, 2015
     Want to see Whiskered Auklets and other pelagic species but don't want to spend a long time on a boat? This is the tour for you.

St. Matthew Island cruise
June 30-July 7, 2015

     St. Matthew Island, a seldom-visited island in the Bering Sea, is one of the few places in the world where the beautiful McKay's Bunting breeds. We depart Dutch Harbor and end at St. Paul, so there will be plenty of seabirds along the way: Whiskered Auklet, Red-legged Kittiwake, good chances for Short-tailed Albatross and Mottled Petrel, plus many alcid species.


The Ross's Gull Tour: Barrow, Alaska
Oct 4-8, 2014
    
Join us as we look for some of the magical birds of the Arctic. Our main target is Ross's Gull, but we also look for Ivory Gull, Snowy Owl, Spectacled Eider, and more. We've even seen polar bears, five in 2012 and 3 in 2013.
