Participant Paul Thomas, whose photo touch is a fine one, sent in a selection of images from two of our Africa tours. Here, first, is a lovely Scaly (Scaly-feathered) Weaver from our Namibia & Botswana tour.
Shifting gears far westward, guide Bret Whitney sent in this photo of our Northeastern Brazil group admiring a handsome Pinto's spinetail on our recent tour, wondering how anyone could have suggested calling it "Plain Spinetail"!
Shifting yet farther westward brings us to our recent Amazonian Ecuador: Sacha Lodge tour, where one of the great features is the three-towered canopy walkway, offering terrific opportunities to see birds close up (and from above!).
Paddling across the blackwater lagoon (Pilchechocha) on which Sacha Lodge is located. It's great birding right around the lodge and lagoon, of course, and the water is enticingly warm and clean for a post-lunch dip!
Heading southward, we find ourselves in the Yeso Valley far above the city of Santiago in this image by participant Joy Wallis from our of our recent Chile tours. Hoped for birds? The fabulous Diademed Sandpiper-Plover, among others. And the scenery ain't bad, either!
Let's keep heading 'round the world: In this photo from participant Jack Brown, participant Carol Parker goes stride for stride with 'Missy' -- a huge (and wild) Southern Cassowary who is a regular visitor to the gardens at Cassowary House north of Cairns, Australia.
