Back…to the TROPICS!

All's quiet on the United front

I’m heading to the Tropics! Join me and an intrepid group of birders, naturalists and writers (some are all three!) for some serious fun in Honduras as we put the new Leica Trinovid HD through its paces. The Lodge at Pico Bonito will be home base for the next week! But first I need to get there… Continue reading

Woodcreeper On The Road: POINT PELEE GETS BIRDY!

20130515_033039_black

This will be my last Point Pelee post since I’m not really ‘on the road’ anymore. I hope you’ve enjoyed this foray into new territory as much as I have. If you’re in the park, and can spare a moment at some point, please let me know the birding compared to previous days. From the radar, at least, it sure looks good today!! Continue reading

Woodcreeper On The Road: POINT PELEE DAY 3

20130513_032603_black

Today’s my last day at Point Pelee National Park and it’s the coldest morning so far (just about freezing!). I’ll head into the park for one more morning at ‘the tip’ but with the cold temps and light northerly winds last night, I have little expectation for new arrivals. There are still plenty of birds around the park which I have not yet seen, so I’ll be out trying to round some up before heading back across the border this afternoon. Continue reading
