“Beck showed us around Miami, looking for the parakeets, bulbuls, munias and other exotic species that the ABA has added to the North American checklist. A former resident, she knew all the far-flung neighborhoods and parks that these birds frequent. Unfortunately, we picked a day when a cold front had moved in and depressed the birds’ activity. Beck worked her tail off for us, checking and double checking the most promising sites. I ended up with three “countable” life birds, as well three parakeet species that haven’t made the checklist but were just as beautiful and fun to watch (and photograph) as the others!” -Michael Sheldon, Seattle, WA 2/7/22

Thank you for a wonderful and safe time!  I love how you took the time to make sure I actually saw/identified the birds. It is a bonus when we are allowed to discover as we go, rather than being rushed!  Discovery inspires awe and a sense of accomplishment, no matter how old you are! I hope to join you again soon
