It’s the dream of many birders, to travel the US and Canada by car for one entire year taking in as much of the continent’s birds as you can along the way. It is the reality of Marc Kramer and Eliana Ardila Ardila, the Birding by Bus duo. They’ve spend the whole of 2018 crossing the country in their Volkswagen Westfalia and documenting the whole thing on social media to the delight of those of us who get to follow along. They join me from a stop at ABA headquarters in Delaware City to talk about their amazing year and where they’ll go from here.

Also, Major League Soccer is pretty great for birds in a couple different ways.

Join the ABA in Thailand early next year for Birding and Photography. Get more information at the ABA Travel!
