NE Tucson’s Rillito River Sparrows
Last
Thursday I spent a couple hours of the morning checking the sparrow flocks
along the Rillito River with my friend Keith Kamper. It was a good excuse for a
bike ride (about 12 miles round trip), and I wanted to follow up on a report of Clay-colored Spar...

Peak of Diversity WINGS Bolivia Tour: The Foothills and Valley of Lagunillas
September
15, 2015 For this
year’s tour I had added a day to the old itinerary so we could bird the
foothills and interior valley of Lagunillas, a sleepy little town visited by
few people other than travelers interested in the story of Che Guevara. This is

ABC Field Trip and a Montosa Elegant Trogon
I managed to
get out birding twice in the past two days. On Sunday Jennie MacFarland from
Tucson Audubon and I volunteered to help Dan Lebbin with the field trip he had
organized for the American Bird Conservancy’s board, who had been in Tucson for
the past...

My 46th Birthday
I almost
forgot. Three days before my birthday, which was a week ago tomorrow, I hadn’t
made any plans other than what was surely going be a pleasant dinner out and
movie with my close friend Hal. He was planning on treating me for my birthday,
but I didn’t...

Yucatan From the Field Report
December 6, 2015 It was wonderful
being back in the Yucatan again. The birding here is simply fun, and I had a
great group of participants who meshed well and who were also just as intent on
having fun. For such a
short tour we birded in a remarkable variet...

Sycamore Canyon in the Patagonia Mountains
I’m almost
to Peru, where I’ll leading my WINGS tour in the states of San Martín and
Amazonas. Some really cool birds are waiting for us, and I’ll take a break boning
up on their call notes in order to share a few photos from the only birding I
did in the p...

Home Blog – kitchen, garden, and knitting
I’m home for
only just four weeks between travel, and the time is flying. I’d have no idea
what happens to all my time, as I’m trying to be good and work at home instead
of going out and playing. But it turns out there are plenty of distractions
around the ...

The San Luis Wash on the Buenos Aires NWR Christmas Bird Count
After the
countdown dinner for the Atascosa Highlands CBC at Widsom’s Café in Tumacacori , I set out
for another night of roadside camping, finding a spot barely 9 ½ miles west of
where I had camped last night. This would be my 10 th and final

Four California Christmas Bird Counts
It was an
odd-numbered year, so I was not offering my wonderful Oaxaca at Christmastime
tour in 2015 (and incidentally there is only one space left on the 2016 tour
already). That means going all out to do many Christmas Bird Counts and that I
can spend Chr...

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.
