Nature lovers who love to travel know that few experiences are more enjoyable than preparation for a big trip. The mundane details that actually allow a trip to happen are tedious, but researching all those potential birds… huge fun! Your theoretical trip list will always be so much more extensive and exotic than your actual list. Who doesn’t love that feeling of endless possibility?
Why is travel on my mind? Because I’ll be birding Japan this weekend en route to Singapore! I’ve never birded Asia, so you can probably imagine how delirious I am in contemplating the daunting diversity ahead of me. As far as Corey is concerned, nothing he can be doing this weekend could compare to my plans, so let’s not even pretend we care 😉 How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday. Also be sure to come back Monday to share your best bird of the weekend!
Sunrise at Kaikoura in New Zealand
(If you visit at the right time, you might see what Duncan saw here: albatrosses!)
A great SkyWatch Post.
I’m on a crazy two day trip to taken in Arthur’s Pass and Kaikoura! I already have seen a bunch if NZ’s famous Kea!
I’ll be doing a seawatch in southern Delaware at the Indian River Inlet and then working my way north stopping at Dogfish Head Brewery, Bombay Hook NWR, and then Port Mahon for Short-eared Owls!
