Hi CA birders,
I know it's a bit off topic, but many of you - mostly on Alvaro's boats - have asked about my 7-week summer trip to Colombia with National Audubon Society. To say it was amazing would be an understatement, and I wanted to give you a quick sample of some of the incredible birds that I experienced.
I've curated the best ~40 photos (of many thousands) and put them into eBird and onto my own website. I'd strongly encourage viewing them in eBird so that you can rate them. I'm sure the eBird/Macaulay people would appreciate your input/help, particular for the species that are underrepresented in their collection (Masked Saltator, Streaked Tuftedcheek, etc). I've included a link to my photo website for those that would prefer that platform.
If anyone is interesting in going to Colombia with me next summer, I'm running a photobirding trip for Alvaro the end of June into July. A photobirding trip is basically a slower paced birding trip with a bit of extra time allocated to photographically productive areas - like feeder arrays. With amazing views of many stunning tropical birds, even non-photographers will enjoy that time.
Lastly, if anyone is suffering from insomnia, please feel free to check out my accounts of my Colombian travels on my blog.
OK, that's it.
