    Far-East Russia is no-no for now. So I think Jos might be in China, Thailand, Botswana, Brasil, Cuba, Ohio or Canada (I use good old fashioned paper map and ruler). But I mostly think he's in Miami Beach in Florida sunbathing because all those birds in his yard have worn him out :LOL:

    Winter came back here also. Yesterday afternoon I drove home from the sunny north. There was already a few centimeters of snow on the ground here. Migratory birds seemed to wonder what was going on here. I am especially worried about the Oystercatchers' food intake. Luckily neighbors put more...
