The Bird Nerd Adventure

Road trip number…

8

That’s quite a few times to travel across the country within a few years.  This misadventure started in San Diego with Cholla, a fellow naturalist and bird nerd.  Armed with binoculars, bird books, a dirty Honda Civic, and a love of Priceline.com, we set forth on a three week journey across the country.

Highlights:

Dancing Clark’s Grebes. Date shakes. Death Valley, stark landscapes of uninhabitable rocks. City of Sin, oh Las Vegas. The cutest Oak Titmouse in the world. A high speed off-roading expedition to see a juvenile Ferruginous Hawk.  A lack of Lewis’s Woodpeckers.
