SNEAK PEEK! Birder’s Guide to Travel, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-03-04 at 6.36.21 PMThe 2016 issue of Birder’s Guide to Travel has just hit the printers. American Birding Association members should find it in their mailboxes in the next couple weeks. But you don’t have to wait until then to see what’s inside. You can see the entirety of this issue of Birder’s Guide right now. Simply click here. (Birder’s Guide is just one of the free resources that the ABA provides to the birding public.)

Looking for a new vacation destination? Articles on Newfoundland and western Texas are sure to whet your appetite. Or maybe you’re in Seattle for a wedding or a long layover and have only a few hours to steal away for some birding? We’ve got you covered there, too. Our popular “20 Best Birds” series is back, this time highlighting birds such as the exquisite Splendid Fairywren–almost sure to entice you to travel down under. Advice on how to prepare for a trip to the Neotropics will help you make the most of the experience. And as always, our Pelagic Directory brings up the rear.
