Tasmania or bust!


Birds have always fascinated us. We mere mortals are enamored by their colors, behavior, song, and diversity. Most of all, perhaps, we envy birds' ability to fly. Two-hundred-mile migrations of mule deer in Wyoming or the epic journeys of wildebeest and zebras in the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem are captivating but can't compare to what migratory birds pull off twice each year.


I was stunned to read about this five-month-old godwit's journey from Alaska to Tasmania documented by GPS. And the bird apparently did it NON-STOP!


The more we learn about animals, the more wonderous they get.
