Where America dreams of/goes birding?

10,000 Birds

But first, not thinking of proper research, I made no difference between questions, nor were the mentioned destinations really visited or only dreamed about. Before I present the statistics, I should repeat that I had no intention of doing research, that 71 birders is a rather small number, but I still found some answers statistically important and worth sharing. I had no intention of making a questionnaire or analysing the results.

10,000 Birds

Or, Pygmy leaf-folding frogs, Afrixalus brachycnemis, from Tanzania, tiny climbing frogs who lay their eggs in leaves and then fold the leaves over them for protection, sealing the nest with secretions. There are over 5,000 species of frogs in existence (5,858 at the time the book was written, the exact number changes as research dictates re-arrangements of taxonomy and new species are discovered). “Peek!” Plunk.
