Today, the sun is actually shining, with a temperature of -17C (windchill -29C). I was longing to go on the annual Snowy Owl Prowl east of the city, but, after being out yesterday, I just couldn't face the long drive across the city to today's meeting pl…

Watching Scarlet Ibis at Caroni Swamp, Trinidad

Watching Scarlet Ibis at Caroni Swamp, Trinidad
This photo makes me smile. Is anyone actually looking at the breathtaking Ibis at this moment, or is everyone using Playback on their cameras?

This photo was taken on 19 March 2017, our last but one day on the island of Trinidad. On that day, we hiked…
