We’ve made it as far as Hounslow at the beginning of our Great American Birding RoAd Trip ll – GABRaT ll. Tomorrow morning we fly to Orlando, Florida via Dublin for the start of our epic journey, following Spring bird migration from the south to the north of America – along the Eastern seaboard. After birding the Keys and a trip to the Dry Tortugas we head north via the Everglades to Sanibel Island, then it’s into Georgia, South & North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio (for the Biggest Week in American Birding Festival), then it’s into Canada & the migration hot-spot of Point Pelee, Niagara Falls, then through New England to the north-east tip of Maine. We’ll be meeting up with friends on the way, absorbing the culture and taking in the magnificent scenery but mostly it will be six relentless weeks of birding! Subject to WiFi I’ll be blogging most days. Feel free to follow our adventures as they happen. Next post will be from the east coast of Florida – somewhere near Fort Pierce.
