While I love this blog, I now pretty much only write on my other two blogs: BirdingBlogs.com and 10,000 Birds - I would love to see you there!

Digiscoping, roadrunners and great big Kazakhstani canyons

I passed by Sharon the BirdChick's blog yesterday to find a video she made about digiscoping.

Check out the roadrunner in action!

So American. So Sharon. I love it.

here is another video with Sharon in - we were at the Charyn Canyon in southern Kazakhstan - it is one of the most spectacular natural things I have ever seen. Well up there with the Victoria Falls, Guatemalan volcanoes, alpine peaks, and columns of rock rising out of the ocean's depths.

the wind in Charyn Canyon was howling - at least 5 billion miles per hour.
But it was fine, because we knew that it was "dangerous for life"

happy birding,
Dale Forbes
