Birding

As you may have guessed by now, we are avid bird watchers. Well, o.k., maybe Karen just likes birds, while Rob is a fanatical twitcher who travels the world in search of his next "lifer."  We first started watching birds while living in Namibia, where Rob's boss happened to be one of the most accomplished birders in the world (he's even got one named after him in Colombia!).

Below you will find the current totals of Rob's various life lists, as well as trip reports and links to birding websites that we think are worth a visit.
