Incoming Storm... Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
First, the bad news!
Unfortunately, I will not be attending the ABA Convention in Corpus Christi, TX as I had originally planned at the end of April. Another opportunity reared its ugly head and now I have to do something else.... I don't like it, but I am going to have to do it! Instead of Corpus Christi I will be heading to....
Now the good news!
Ecuador!!!! Wow! I am an excited man. Last year we went to Costa Rica and had a great time. This year, my good friend John and I were talking about doing a birding trip so to do a trip together I had to decide between a trip to Corpus (alone, he wasn't interested at this time) or spend about the same money and go to Ecuador together! Well... I decided for Ecuador. Our area of birding will be NW of Quito. The particular are that we are staying has recorded approx. 1,000 bird species! I repeat - 1,000! You can imagine my excitement!
However, first things first, next week I am off to a meeting in Orlando, FL. After our meeting ends on Thursday, I will be out Friday and Saturday birding Merritt Island NWR. My target is the Florida Scrub Jay among others.
