National Audubon nature guides

These come in various regional guides.
http://www.amazon.com/National-Audub...0508439&sr=8-1

I do have several of them. For birds, they are not really enough, but I like them for plants, trees, and the tips on wildlife areas. With a bird guide, I only need this for other info, to travel light. It has gotten to the point where I need a Focus guide for birding areas, tree guide, Peterson forest guide, etc. So this is quite portable.

In areas where they have national parks, you get a bird check list at the desk for 50c or a dollar.

The Florida book is waiting for a trip. Never been to Florida to bird. I even lived there, unofficially, 6 months. Some of it travel.

What are you waiting for? Southern Florida in winter is really nice.

Last year my wife spent two weeks of my vacation on something. Oh, it was Canada. Then I went to FInland with my son. This summer I do not know what I am doing. I might have a week left in fall. But then my daughter is in Finland, and there is talk of saving 2 weeks for a December visit. No birds there, other than bird feeders.

I am the only nature person in the family currently. Others are into tourism, so I can squeeze in a day or two of birding usually.

Hopefully something will get sorted out. My s.o. likes visiting cities and also likes birding, so we do birding trips and I sometimes go to cities with her. Our workflows are different; it's much easier for her to take 2-3 weeks off at once than it is for me, so I/we go on week-long birding trips.

Yes, I hope to go somewhere, anywhere, in summer. Most likely just a few days of Minnesota, though.
