Welcome to birdWalker, a website of birding photos and trip reports by Bill Walker and Mary Wisnewski, California birders based in Santa Clara County. We've been collecting our trip reports since 1996, we have now recorded 852 trips and 783 species.
My book of photos from Costa Rica is available now at my Blurb bookstore. This book presents an overview of an intensive birding trip to Costa Rica. The 100+ photos are a great introduction to Costa Rica's birds and ecological zones, showcasing shorebirds on the western coast, the quetzals of the Talamanca Higlands, tropical diversity at La Selva, and a sampler of hummingbirds in the Central Volcanic mountain range.
So far in day 265 of 2014 we have seen 178 species. Last year at this time we had seen 304.
