Rodrigo Silva

Birding & Wildlife Guide

Rodrigo is a chilean veterinarian by profession but a naturalist by choice. He has Masters studies in wilderness conservation and has been working both as a Wildlife specialist on environmental assessment and as a Guide for Albatross Birding and Nature Tours since 2010.


Due to his work he has traveled across most of the rural parts Chile for the last 10 years, which has given him a deep knowledge of the whole wildlife spectrum and specifically of birds.


He knows many off the beaten track destinations, little-known restaurants and all kinds of stuff you could expect from an experienced local guide. Together with this Rodrigo has a big passion for Chilean music, food and wine!


He is an active member of ROC (Chilean birders network), being involved as eBird reviewer and in the research project on breeding biology of Storm-Petrels (Elliot's, Markham's and Ringed) in the world's most arid desert.


As an environmental consultant he is currently leading some bird and bat monitoring programs on wind farms and power lines. In the past years he also has been involved in fieldwork with species like Andean Cat, Colocolo Opossum, Burrowing Parakeet and Torrent Duck, just to name a few.


During early 2015 he made his first overseas trip in the company of his wife Patricia and his 4-year old daughter Violeta. This was a full 6 months travelling across Southeast Asia and now he's come back home, glad and proud to share with passengers the best of the chilean birding possibilities but also the culture, landscapes and nature in all its forms of expression of this blessed country.

Rodrigo speaks english and he's currently guiding all over the country
