Finding my roots again. Never too old to rock. My video about the public discrimination of the hood Rinkeby/Tensta where I spent 13 years before moving to Peru - and LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF LIVING THERE - has gotten +20000 views on Facebook in only two days. Let's see if that can be beat on Google+.
I'd be extremely grateful if you share this with any Swede you know and ask them what the lyrics is about. 
Vem hade kunnat ana? En 30 år gammal låt om Rinkeby och Tensta har börjat spridas viralt när den äntligen spelades in med hela bandet. Men temat är ju fortfarade högaktuellt.

Kolibri Expeditions is offering a fantastic affordable one week trip to winter Japan in February. Still a few vacancies. Hardly no company offers SHORT trip that concentrate on the essentials of Steller's Eagle, Red-crowned Crane, Blakiston's Fish-Owl and the winter bathingJapanese Macaque. We do! And we pack it in within a week to keep cost down and to allow you to join us only taking 5 days off from work.

Of 23 Grebes, 3 have gone extinct the last 40 years. Happy to see our Junin Grebe (CR) project is gaining recognition on various blogs. Check it out!

We spent 32 minutes with this Jaguar during our tour in the Brazilian Pantanal in September last year. Lots of good opportunities to photography this water loving cat.
On this hot day with 40 degrees temperature we saw no less than 4 jaguars, 7 Giant Otters and 2 Tapirs. Marvelous. Pantanal is truly the best place in South America for wildlife.

This cat is not afraid of water. Jaguar fishing in the Pantanal. We had a fantastic day in the Pantanal last year with 4 Jaguars, 7 River Otters, 2 Tapirs and several Capibaras seen. Best time to go is between July and September (dry - and VERY HOT season with days up to 40 degrees centigrades - 104F).

Fantastic day in the Pantanal on Sep 2, 2015 with 4 Jaguar, 7 Giant Otters and 2 Tapirs. And a lot of nice birds too.

We were looking at Rusty-backed Spinetail in a secluded creek in the Brazilian Pantanal, when the motorista tapped my shoulder and said: “Onça” (Jaguar in Brazilian Portuguese!). Turning around a male jaguar was walking alongside on the other side of the creek, probably less than 10 m away. Lots of still photos were taken.and then the Jaguar got into the water and swam across to the other side of the creek. Here is a short clip from this wonderful experience.

Turning around a male jaguar was walking alongside on the other side of the creek, probably less than 10 m away. I had to compress my 150-600mm Sigma lens to about 300mm in order for the jaguar to fit in the frame. These are the first shots - got some better ones later.

Amazing experience! We are doing a new Pantanal trip in August 2016.

A lot of splits are pending. A lot of new birds are un-named. How long shall we wait? Birders want More Birds!
