Passiflora mexicana and Gulf Fritillaries in the Yard
I was home for
just three days after my Mato Grosso tour – just enough time to see some dear
friends, sort and open mail, and get the bulk of my post-tour chores done; but
not enough to make a trip to the laundromat. I did walk around the yard from
time to ...

Highlights from the 2016 WINGS Marvelous Mato Grosso Tour
My last tour to Brazil’s marvelous state of Mato Grosso finished nearly two weeks ago, so it’s about time I post a quick summary of the natural history highlights. I could also go on about how great the participants were, because most of them really were so...

Pantanal Jaguars #13-16
I’ve blogged
a fair amount about the Pantanal in the past, and I always come home from here
with lots of material. I like to end my Mato Grosso tours here, at the very
southern end of the state, as the habitats are more open and birding is easier.
After the...

Early Monsoon Yard Blog
I was at
home just a week between tours, but I got a lot done, not just editing all the
photos from the Galápagos. In the garden I sowed about a hundred black-eyed
peas as a suggestion for a nitrogen-fixing green cover, and I bought another
tomato plant (gu...

The Culprit That Ate My Spearmint
When I got home from Brazil, I checked the jar in which I had put the three green caterpillars that had devoured my mint. One had only just begun spinning a cocoon just before I departed for Brazil, but they finished their metmorphosis and there were four d...

Rio Azul Jungle Lodge – My First Visit
I’ve long
wanted to visit Rio Azul Jungle Lodge, and the owners have been offering to
host me for an inspection visit for several years. I’ve just not had the free
time to follow up on it. But during the first planning stages of this current

A Higher Cult of Mortals
It’s amazing
what you can see in just five days at Cristalino Jungle Lodge. On this private
tour I’m currently leading for a Finnish couple (with their two kids and a
nanny in tow), we saw and heard almost exactly 300 species of birds in just four full days...

A WINGS Week in the Galápagos Islands
Just a week

headed out for my next tour, a private tour to Mato Grosso, Brazil. Everything
about the Galapagos is photogenic and easy to photograph, so I came home with

The whole office is super nice and professional. I had a minor emergency and was able to get an appointment almost immediately. Administration of oral anesthetic is executed brilliantly, and communication throughout the procedure is very helpful. I actually enjoy that Dr. Larsen recognizes me and remembers details. That he would call me at home after hours to follow up is perhaps a bit over the top; he must already know that his service is top notch.
