    California info

    Yellow-billed Magpie to the south of Morro Bay, though I didn't note the exact location, on our way south towards LA. This was in May. Might be Los Alamos Country Park, where they hop around your feet

    Norfolk birding

    As at 15:20 today: Council now agreed to remove some of it at the upper sections. Still some issues re length and materials used, apparently

    New Zealand endemics & birding trip

    PS Blue Duck and Kea at Monkey Creek; Fiordland Crested in Milford Sound (sorry niko - although I did miss a few....not a dedicated birding trip).

    New Zealand endemics & birding trip

    ‘East Homer Tunnel will give you Kea and South Island Wren.’ Just a note of caution: the road to Milford Sound has been subject to ‘clearway’ restrictions for fear of avalanches (was there last week) so one couldn’t stop and park up at Homer Tunnel. Of course, the situation may have changed in...

    Estonia Advice

    There are those more experienced than me above, but would support Laheemaa for white-backed woody and hazel hen. Also, if you’re into ssp’s those of willow tit, jackdaw, nuthatch, herring gull etc are common. Easily reachable from Tallin.

    Sinharaja day trip

    Just to say: did a day trip with Amila last week. Took 2.5 hours to Sinharaja which was pretty good going. Gave us 8 hours classic birding and a great day out

    Sinharaja day trip

    http://www.birdwingnature.com/welcome.html You could try Amila via above. Whether he gets that far south as Hikkaduwa as a start point I am unsure but I have booked him for a day to Sinharaja in Feb starting from Ambalangoda, a little further north up the coast.

    Khao lak in January

    https://www.khaolaktourplan.com/bird-watching You could also try these guys. I had a booking with them last month; unfortunately their birdguide had an accident the night before we were due to go (he was ok, fortunately, and I'm guessing back in action now). However, I did use their driver who...

    Day Trip-Khao Lak area

    Bit of a long shot....but wondered if anyone in the Khao Lak area 29th, 30th, or 31st Oct this year? Looking for a day's birding in the area but having tried some of the guides, logistics and timings are not working out, so having to go solo (my wife is not a birder). Have also tried Thailand...

    Birding in Brazil

    The links below (if they work) may help for Iguazu: can only endorse comments above. We stayed the Argentinian side and the hotel grounds and the town of Puerto Iguazu were themselves pretty good for birding as well as the Falls https://www.toursbylocals.com/birdwatching-nature-wild-forest...

    Birding tours

    Try Birding Ecotours.....they are SA based and, although they do specific tours, will do day tours if you contact them. I used them during my SA holiday last year (at Cape Town) for a day's birding and presume they will have contacts in the Kruger area. Alternatively (guessing you're going in...

    Rio de janeiro- Centro Area

    [http://www.taxeus.com.br/lista.jsf?c=167[/url] You could try the link above: it's for the Jardim Botanico, but is a good proxy for the city. I have a list of birds seen around the city that I can PM, if at all helpful, although I wasn't on a 'birding holiday'. Went to Tijuca and Cristo...

    Do people eat Mute Swans?

    'Swan lovers could get over themselves and worry about more threatened species' One really doesn't preclude the other.

    The perfect trip report

    Wow! That's some report! Excellent. It's a part of the world we're interested in visiting and this is going to come in handy. Not read all 405 pages yet, but will keep this close to hand. Thanks

    Iguacu - Brazil side

    Agree with Nohatch....don't let the border crossing impinge your opportunity to view from the Argentinian side (if you have a day spare in your itinerary). It's a relatively speedy process as these things go...we did it four times. Apart from the birding, you get the chance to go on the...
