Oswaldo Cortes was born in 1984 in Bogotá, and fell in love with birding from an early age. He graduated with a degree in Biology from the Universidad Distrital “Francisco Jose de Caldas” and continues furthering his education through an ongoing Masters in Biology degree at the Universidad Nacional. In 2005 Oswaldo undertook a series of long trips throughout the various major biomes of Colombia ( Caribe, Santa Martha area, Eastern Andes, Western Andes, Central Andes, Choco, llanos and Magdalena Valley) with the objective of learning the tremendous variety of different birds, their voices and their unique habitats Oswaldo is always avidly birding all over Colombia, that is, when he is not researching, recording bird sounds, preparing papers about birds’ rediscoveries, or attending scientific meetings (which he, of course, takes advantage of to do more birding, as he’s done in Brazil, the US, and South Africa). Currently, Oswaldo is co-founder and leader guide of Bogota Birding & Colombia Wildlife Tours.
