Birdwatchers come from all over the world to visit the Galapagos Islands, where there are hundreds of bird species to be seen. Many of them are endemic, so the Galapagos is the only place in the world to see them! The Galapagos bird species follow very particular life cycles of mating, nesting and feeding, and it's important to many island visitors to come at the right time to see the birds they're most interested in.
To name a couple species only, the Frigatebirds only inflate their bright red throat sac during the mating months, and anyone who comes between January and March might miss the Waved Albatross entirely! Here is a handy guide to some of the most sought-after birds, by month.
