Save Place
Bajo Garita, Provincia de Alajuela, La Garita, Costa Rica
No cage...just a perch under the forest canopy at the "Zoo Ave" bird sanctuary, just west of San José, Costa Rica. Several of the parrots and macaws do "speak," but most of these splendid creatures are not pets; tame enough, though, so you can...

Tikal, Guatemala
One of the many gorgeous birds we saw during our tour of the extraordinary Mayan ruins of Tikal.

1001 NM-1, San Antonio, NM 87832, USA
Snowy egrets, geese, herons, cranes, owls, pheasants and road runners abound in the Bosque del Apache. My aunt and uncle lived in their RV at the refuge for two winters, volunteering at the visitor's center and on the "farm" plowing under the...
Save Place
Loulé, Portugal
In Portugal and Spain, storks build their nest wherever they darn well please. The nests are incredible and the birds beautiful. These were seen on a drive from the Algarve in Portugal.
Save Place
Unnamed Road, Peru
Colca Canyon, a three-hour drive north of Arequipa, is one of Peru’s most popular and extraordinary tourist attractions. The chasm is over 13,600 feet deep, making it one of the deepest in the world, and more than twice as deep as the...

El Salvador
Near the border of Guatemala, the mountain hamlet of Tacuba is the essence of tranquilo, its quiet punctuated by yodeling roosters and street parties celebrating indigenous Pipil traditions. Fringed by coffee plantations, this mellow village sits...
Save Place
Morogoro, Tanzania
“Birdwatching” and “extreme” are not usually two words you’ll find together. But when you're birdwatching in the severely threatened rainforests of Tanzania's Uluguru Mountains, the pastime trades its dull reputation for something more befitting a...

88 Valley View, Maracas, St Joseph, Trinidad and, Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago
This was taken at the Yerette hummingbird sanctuary, where all variety of hummingbirds gather, attracted by the plants grown there and the bird feeders. There are no signs leading to the place, so you will need a guide who knows about the place...
Save Place
Tanzania
I expected to witness the great migration, determined by the availability of grazing, of herds of Wildebeest and Zebra while visiting Serengeti National Park in Tanzania during the migration season. As the larger animals blanketed the vast African...
Save Place
Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
There are not many places in the world where you can capture three distinct species in a single frame. In the Galapagos you can, from just a few yards away. I especially liked watching (and photographing) the way very distant relatives interacted....
Save Place
Barranco, Belize
A two-hour bus ride south of Punta Gorda takes you to Belize's best-kept secret: Barranco. Here, you'll find Egbert, who will lend you a kayak, and you can explore the coast of Belize and Guatemala. You'll see Pelicans, sea gulls, and if you're...
Save Place
McMurdo Station, Antarctica
Ah yes the Emperor penguins. They may walk funny on land but at sea they can dive up to 1,850 feet (565 meters) deeper than any other bird, and stay under for more than 20 minutes. They are the largest of their species standing about 4 feet (1.2...
Save Place
Provincia de Puntarenas, Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica
Some experiences in life immediately have that once-in-a-lifetime quality. For years, my birdwatching boyfriend spoke of the elusive Scarlet Macaws. How desperately he wanted to see them in the wild (they're quite limited in their range). Last...
Save Place
TELUK BELANGA, 32300 Pangkor Island, Perak, Malaysia
This is the time to sit back, relax and soak in the awesome view with a cold drink in hand at the Pangkor Island Beach Resort. Pangkor is a small island, a sleepy town. It's the perfect place to get away from it all, sit on the beach and just...
