White-throated Dipper in Switzerland

10,000 Birds

Though originally from Switzerland he now makes New York City his home where I (Corey) have had the great fortune of meeting him, birding with him, and photographing wildlife with him.

10,000 Birds

I slept in hotel in Zurich but didn’t leave the airport or even clear immigration, so I can’t really say I’ve been to Switzerland either. Perched high above the river were a number of birds of prey, including the one with the most evocative call of the African bush, the African Fish-eagle.
