Guatemala 2019

El Pilar

One of my favorite lines in the entire North American ornithological literature:

[Jonathan] Dwight never abandoned his hope of acquiring an adequate collection of Guatemalan birds, fully aware that this country was a far richer field than Costa Rica.

At the moment, looking at snow through the windows at Newark airport, I’m at least as eager for some clement weather as I am for the birds.

Our VENT Birds and Art tour starts tomorrow, and I can’t wait to meet up with old friends and new in the group.
