Pico Bonito Lodge is one of the best places in
the world to find the Lovely Cotinga!
Rob writes: It's hard to believe that Eric and I have been writing and sharing our stories on this blog for over 4.5 years! A lot has changed since we started. We didn't have up and running when we first started blogging. The website was something that we had tossed around for a long time, but it wasn't until we started telling our birding stories on the blog that we believed we could make a larger birding website work.  The blog allowed us to see that people were actually interested in our birding adventures and photos, so we decided to take a shot at expanding to the full website.

Through our website and associated work, I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing groups and meet many spectacular people! I have spoken to many groups around Indiana sharing my passion for birds and have led field trips even farther afield.

The Honduran Emerald is the only
species that is endemic to Honduras.
I'm excited to share that I now have the opportunity to show people even more of the birding world! This July, I will be leading my first international birding tour for Sabrewing Nature Tours. Our destination will be Honduras, with one of the main stops being the famed Pico Bonito Lodge.

The full itinerary can be found on the Sabrewing website by following this link!bird-honduras/c1zxq. We will be looking for some really amazing species such as Honduran Emerald (the only bird endemic to Honduras), Resplendent Quetzal, Lovely Cotinga, and Keel-billed Toucan, among so many others! I hope that you will have the chance to join me in Honduras.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or if you're interested in signing up for the tour.
