Happy Notes and Field Pics

The early morning outing was fabulous!  One highlight was your saying, “If I were a juvenile heron I would be in this tree” and you were absolutely correct.  Thank you for showing me part of Tucson that I didn’t know existed.

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with my grandson yesterday. I also learned a thing or two too.  I have never been birding with an experienced birder.  And just being outside exploring makes me happy.

Our bucket is brimming with a lot of lifer birds during this trip.  So, so happy.  So glad we came.  And can’t thank you enough.  Learned so much from you.  We had a great time with you.

Rudra and Anay (8 yrs. old) S., Connecticut, Spring 2021 (Both photographers and 3 days of bird photography with me!)

I had such a wonderful time – you were patient and explained so much in helping distinguish different species (darn flycatchers), identifying calls and were just as excited as I was to find everything we found.  I had such a wonderful day…

Kelly B., Ohio, Spring 2021
