Gearing Up for a Neotropical Adventure


Having the right gear with you can be the different between thoroughly enjoying yourself and…not. Things like wet feet, fogged binoculars, and swarms of blackflies can have you running back to the car and wishing you were home, instead.

In “Gearing Up for a Neotropical Adventure“, Kathi Borgmann shares her thoughts on the gear you need to have with you to make a birding trip to the Neotropics enjoyable. And if you’re aware of what Kathi’s been up two the last two years, you know her opinions on the subject are well informed.

Just click here to access Kathi’s article. Free access to online issues of Birder’s Guide is one of the many services the ABA provides to the birding public.

If you have questions for Kathi, or you wish to share your own advice, please leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
