Reading about your adventures on Corvo has been a pleasure. It seems a little strange to work so hard to see North American birds in Europe. That reminds me of the years I lived in Arizona where birders came from far and wide to see Mexican strays north of the border. I always just went south of the border to see a plethora of Mexican species. Why not just go to North America, and get many more species for the money?
Hi John,I have been to America five times and planning on going back again next spring. I love your birds.Vagrant hunting and rarity is about context and in my opinion there is no better way to see American birds than discovering them as a result of endless time of searching, in a setting where they are unsual or out of context- it is the most intimate and exhilirating connection. It is nice to work so hard for something which is so beautiful. Nothing beats that.
