Avian Discovery Tours was formed by Don Kimball, a life-long birder and wildlife researcher originally from New Brunswick, Canada. A contributor to the science of birds since the 1970’s, Don's early adventures include 17 years as a field research technician under contract with the Canadian Federal Government.

A seasoned traveler and videographer, in 2008/2009 Don traveled the length of Australia filming the continent's stunning and fascinating parrots. (Read about the adventure here) In 2010 Discovering the World of Parrots was released and has sold several hundred copies to date. Over the years, Don has led group tours for Nature Canada and guided others to some of his favorite birding locations. Costa Rica and Australia are particular favorites.

 

 

A native Australian, Greg Little is the principal scientific consultant for General Flora and Fauna.  Throughout the years, Greg has provided in-depth biological assessment surveys of a variety of important and critical habitats potentially impacted from mining, rail construction, and power operations.  Greg has had years of experience as a bird guide, leading international travelers to specific locations around Australia helping to find that hard sought after species that has been on their dream list.

At home in the outback interior, Greg also has worked remote outback regions in conjunction with projects assisting local Aboriginal peoples. When time permits Greg and wife Judy can be found in the bush exploring the gorgeous Australian hinterland searching for new bird species.
