Pro-birds, Pro-birders, Pro-fessional
If you are planning a trip to Eastern Europe you have come to the right place. In particular, if you are looking for a quality birding or wildlife-watching experience then we are here to help as we offer an unrivalled selection of carefully planned tour itineraries. We also guide groups for many global wildlife holiday companies and arrange tours for clubs, societies, families with children and disabled birders. Probirder also supplies expert local guides for individual birders and self-formed groups. Besides birds we also focus on mammals, butterflies, natural history in general and wildlife tracking. We know all the places we visit thoroughly and emphasis is on quality birding and quality wildlife watching.
Probirder was created 25 years ago as an information source and guiding service by well-known birder and author Gerard Gorman. Gerard began exploring Eastern Europe, from the Baltic to the Balkans, in the mid-1980s, acquiring a wealth of experience (and experiences!) in the field. Today he is widely regarded as Eastern Europe's most accomplished birding guide having personally led over 500 tours and having devised many more. He is author of 7 books including two birding site guides to Eastern Europe, a guide to Central and Eastern European Wildlife. He is particuarly interested in picids and has written THE handbook to Europe's woodpeckers and a monograph The Black Woodpecker.
Since those early days Probirder has evolved into the leading operator of birding and wildlife tours in Eastern Europe. From the very beginning Probirder has led the way in the region by being first in the field and then by developing a pioneering range of itineraries. Indeed, our team is proud of the fact that every Probirder itinerary is original. All of the classic bird tours on offer in Eastern Europe today are based on original Probirder itineraries.
