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
ago I came home from my fifth trip to the Galápagos Islands. And already I’m
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
lots of pho...

Two Weeks in Tucson: Baking, Knitting, Singing, and Gardening
My two weeks
at home between Nepal and my next tour, the Galapagos, are up. In fact, when my
flight takes off tomorrow morning, I will have been in Tucson two hours short
of exactly 14 days. I’ve gotten a lot done. I got back
into baking right away, first m...

Doha to Houston Flight
It was daylight the entire 16-hour+ flight from Doha, Qatar to Houston, Texas, USA this past Wednesday, June 1. I took a few photos when the sky was clear below, and I managed to find the exact locations on Google Earth. Some sights were beautiful. Some wer...

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...

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...

In Search of Nepal's Red Panda
This is yet another very photo-heavy blog from my next-to-last weekend in Nepal, which I spent successfully searching for Red Panda and birding on the eastern border of Nepal with India. My friend Mich, with whom I’m staying in Kathmandu, had been wanting t...

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...

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.
