Your turn: World Birding Strategies

facebooktwitter

The September/October 2008 issue of Birding contained an article by Keith Barnes, in which he suggested a strategy for building a large lifelist while visiting as few locations as possible. In the March 2014 issue of Birder’s Guide to Travel, Jason Leifester tells us of his experience putting Keith’s suggestions to the test. With just five major international trips away from home (Austin, Texas),  Jason has amassed a life list close to 3,000 species.

You can read about Jason’s experiences (and see some spectacular photos that he’s taken along the way) by clicking here. The entire March 2014 issue of Birder’s Guide is available online for free–just one of the services the ABA offers to the birding public.

Do you have advice of your own to offer when it comes to world birding? A specific comment about Jason’s article? An experience you want to tell us about? Please offer them in the comment section, below!
