Lifebird #5000 at Shivapuri-Nagarjun National Park
When I
returned to Kathmandu from Chitwan, I knew that I was close to seeing my 5000th
lifebird; my first estimate was that I was about 30 birds away, but I also knew
that there were likely some errors in my lifelist spreadsheet, ones I had forgotten to
add...

Birding Around Sauraha, Nepal
I’m just
back from an exciting, long weekend of birding in far eastern Nepal, right on
the Indian border. So now’s the time for a few quick catch-up blogs before I
write about what we saw there. It is
already over three weeks ago that Andrew Broan and I tra...

Nepal Trek Day 4: Ghandruk back to Nayapul
Today is the
birding-trekking version of a travel day as we make our way back to Nayapul and
then taxi to the city of Pokhara. It’s all downhill, and virtually all in open
farm country, and instead of the average of 14 lifebirds each day, today I see
eight....

Nepal Trek Day 2: From Ulleri to Ghorepani
It turns out
that one of the main draws to doing a trek in Nepal is the scenery. If you look
up once in a while, you should see a different angle on a most abrupt spine of
snow-covered peaks that jut up to over 8000 meters (26,500 feet) in elevation.
Crazy ...

A Weekend in Pokhara, Nepal
On the last
full weekend in April, my second here in Nepal, we took a road trip to the
touristy town of Pokhara. Andrew Broan arrived on Tuesday, not quite off his
jet lag (we’re 11 hours and 45 minutes ahead of Tucson) but raring to see some
more of Nepal;...

Two Visits to Chitwan National Park, Nepal
During our four days in Sauraha, I visited Chitwan National Park twice. It’s kind of a hassle, as you have to get a ticket to enter each day, at a cost of about $17, and the booth doesn’t open until 6:30 a.m., an hour after sunrise. On our first day, Andrew...

Nepal Trek Day 3: From Ghorepani to Ghandruk
Today we
trek from Ghorepani at 2900 meters elevation down to Ghandruk at 2000, first
climbing to a ridge at 3200 meters (10,500 feet) and then dropping very steeply
down some deep ravines. But I remember this isn’t a birding expedition, and
with a wedding ...

Ghorepani Trek Day 1: Nayapul to Ulleri
I came to
Nepal for two reasons: the first is to spend time with my friends Kate and
Mich, who no longer live in Tucson and who also have two adorable children. And
the second is that it’s about as far away from anywhere I’ve ever been on this
planet and ce...

Cupwings, Tesias, Minlas, Fulvettas, and Niltavas – another 77 lifers in Nepal
The timing

Kate and Mich had to go to work. Perfect time to me to begin the long process
of getting over...

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.
