There’s more to a successful bird tour than just pointing out the birds. From logistics to managing personalities, a bird tour guide has to be part ornithologist and part psychologist. Rockjumper Birding‘s George Armistead has led bird tours on all seven continents and has a lot to say on the subject, and he joins me to talk tour tips, places he loves to take birders, and much more.
Also, the new Duck Stamp art for 2018 is out, but I argue that the subject leaves a little to be desired. Plus a whole host of rare birds on opposite ends of the continent.
Resources referenced in this episode include The ABA Blog Hurricane Irma round-up.
