International birding tourism after the Covid-19 – what will change?

10,000 Birds

We are stuck. In a world we made. I remember a cartoon showing the prehistoric Earth as a vast forest with tiny villages fenced-off due to dangerous animals, and the today’s Earth as a wasteland, with a few tiny forests remaining, fenced-off due to abominable humans.

A Slacker’s Guide to Bird Photography (Part Two)

10,000 Birds

Last week I humbly offered up a totally unprofessional, possibly misinformed guide to taking bird photos that aren’t completely embarrassing, and that might even make you proud on occasion. Those suggestions were for birders like me, who are not all about taking that one perfect photo.

Cold, Wind, and Quetzals

10,000 Birds

Cold is subjective. At least how a person feels about temperature. It’s true! I have heard many people in Costa Rica mention the freezing cold weather, or how cold it is… when it’s 65 degrees. If I had grown up only knowing warm, humid weather, I would feel the same.

Very Special Birds

10,000 Birds

When I got back into birding about six years ago, I would not have predicted the personal bonds a birder can form with certain species. While all birds bring us joy, and we certainly want to see as many as we can, some species just seem more… special.

Accept this

Businesses are laying off workers, shutting their doors (some permanently), and struggling to react to the radical destruction that coronavirus (COVID-19) is doing to our society and communities.
