Wings Over the Platte River... Birding Report on the Sandhill Cranes near Grand Island, Nebraska (click Crane Photo left, to view story) Nearly Every year Sandhill Cranes return to the Upper Mississippi River in Mid-March. But one of the great birding spectacles of all time is in Nebraska!

The Rhone River Delta and the French Camargue
France is a country full of distinctive "regions" and one of the least visited is the Camargue Region of Southern France. This is a major winter destination for the PINK FLAMINGO.
Also tour the Petit Rhone in an authentic steamboat, stay at a "dude ranch" and work the bulls with the Gardians!
Birding and Beaching in Panama. Sunrise over the Pacific, wildlife and birds such as we only dreamed of in Costa Rica and the Amazon... We've just returned from an excursion to Panama combined one week at the Playa Blanca all inclusive resort with a week in Panama's rainforest with a group of Midwestern birders. We posted our pictures online, go ahead a take a look! We enjoyed the beach as well as we did the birding... plus $500 each member of the birding group went to support a bird banding station we visited in a national preserve.
Birding in the Riparian Habitats of SE Arizona.
We recently visited the San Pedro River Basin in Southeast Arizona. Like the Bosque del Apache and the Platte River in Nebraska, wetlands in Arizona are home to thousands of wintering Sandhill Cranes and other birds.
Riparian = water-dependant environments
