  1. Hi Bob, I just want to say that your photography and your prose are a joy to admire and to read. That is quite the list you have here. I was just snooping around your Galley. Amazing photos!! I just love the yacht club photo. I will tell my friend Kevin who owns and runs Wildeside Nature Tours about your work. Here is a link to his website. http://www.wildsidetoursinc.com/

    • Thanks, David. I am glad you are enjoying my photos and my narratives. I am having a blast doing them. I will check out Kevin’s website. I will continue to try to keep you entertained. 🙂

  2. Looks like an impressive list along with the always impressive photography in your previous post. I’m putting together next year’s shooting schedule and I’m going to have to add Eldorado to my list.

  3. Way to go…We don’t see that many in one sitting…Great Bird Watching…Would love to come down there and see all your wildlife…I still am marveling at the beauty of the water lilies. Have a great day..

  4. Bob,
    I’m feeling kind of envious that you could spot so many species in the short time of three hours.
    I’m not that lucky in this area. Great birding partner!
