Legally Blind Birding

Testing the Patience of Birding Guides Around the World

Starting on Dec 26, 2017, I will attempt to identify at least 2,500 species over the course of a year, while working normal full-time hours. I’m calling this a “Global Big Working Year” or GBWY. I will donate $5 for every species I find, with the results being split between ecological and blindness-related charities. The first half of the year will be in support of the Friends of Sax-Zim Bog. The second half will be in support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness. More details here and here.

Since I started this on a Tuesday, my weekly results will use this as the starting day.

Week 4: January 17 – January 23, Thailand

Working Days: 5

New species identified: 53

Total to date: 258

10.3% of goal, 7.7% of year used

Sites visited: Khao Yai National Park, Thailand

When I was setting up our trip to Khao Yai several months ago, the hotel manager asked me “You don’t want to come here on a weekend, do you?” Meaning that during the winter here in Thailand, this most famous of their National Parks is very, very busy. And they were right. Unfortunately, during a Big Working Year, weekends are the only time to bird outside of vacation days, so we had to brave the crowds; every trail we went on had (noisy) people on them, and Silver Pheasants and Siamese Firebacks were nowhere around, not surprisingly.

Only 53 species; considerably less than what I was hoping for. Three of the four hornbills were seen and heard; the wings of the Great Hornbill make a very loud, somewhat spooky sound when the bird flies over. We saw a pair near a potential nesting cavity – soon the female will be walled up inside the tree for the extended brooding period. Other highlights were Common Green Magpie, Banded Kingfisher, White-Rumped Shama, and some nice looks at Hill Blue Flycatchers, which have the same pleasing color scheme as our Eastern Bluebirds back home.

Our friend and birding apprentice Mai, pointing out the dangers of Sambar Deer. They are not as big as elk, as the sign would indicate.

Always nice to see Red Junglefowl – the forbearer of the common chicken.

We did (finally) see an Asian Elephant, a pack of wild dogs, and our guide was very good at finding Pit Vipers with his scope. Not sure I would want to find them any other way. Often they were found draped on low-hanging branches; no reason why they couldn’t be at head height right over the trail…

Week 3: January 9 – January 16, Minnesota to Bangkok

Working Days: 6

New species identified: 19

Total to date: 205

8.2% of goal, 5.8% of year used

Sites visited: Sea-Tac airport, Washington, Lumphini Park, Bangkok

This week had very little birding as we had to burn effectively two days fro travel from Minnesota to Seattle to Seoul to Bangkok. Lots of delays and quite grueling. From the airport in Seattle we saw a Glacous-winged Gull; otherwise the only birding was at Lumphini Park in central Bangkok for a couple hours Sunday morning. Just the typical Bangkok regulars such as Asian Koels, Coppersmith Barbets, Magpie-Robins, Spotted Doves, etc.

Far and away the most common bird in the park is the Large-billed Crow. They look like a cross between and American Crow and Raven and sound a bit like our Fish Crows in the eastern US.

The next update will be much more interesting; will have a full report from Khao Yai National Park.

Week 2: January 2 – January 8, Minnesota

Working days: 4

New species identified: 24

Total to date: 186

7.44% of goal, 3.8% of year used

Sites visited: Bloomington and Sax-Zim Bog, Minnesota

1. The only notable outing this week was a quick trip up to Sax-Zim Bog on Sunday, January 7. That is about a 3 to 3.5 hour drive each way from our house. It was a fairly slow day and we missed a number of expected birds; but we did get a long-time Nemesis removed from our life lists, namely, the Black-backed Woodpecker. Must have been about our tenth try for this striking carpintero. Other notables included a Hoary Redpoll mixed in with abundant Common Redpolls, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Grey Jay, Snow Buntings, and several Great Grey Owls, including this one:

With eyes closed, could be something of a big, cold Potoo

2. Since we will be using the first half of this Global Big Working Year to support The Bog, it seemed necessary to visit during our last weekend in Minnesota for the year. We had a chance to meet up with Sparky Stensaas, one of the founders of Friends of Sax-Zim Bog and the instigator of their Big Half Year fundraiser.

If you are unfamiliar with Sax-Zim, you should know that it is truly deserves status as a Holy Site of birding. It has been called the “Arctic Riviera” as it attracts specialties such as Northern Hawk Owls and Boreal Chickadees in the winter. And it is less than an hour drive from Duluth, another Mecca of Minnesota birding where oddball gulls, jaegers, owls (including Snowy and Boreal), and sundry waterfowl find themselves at the end of the natural funnel created by Lake Superior during fall and winter; while spring has tremendous songbird fallout potential at Park Point. Meanwhile there is nearby Hawk Ridge, where autumn sees astounding numbers of raptors channeled into the region in their attempts to navigate the boundary of the world’s largest lake.

3. For the sake of completeness, I’m putting the running species list at the bottom of this page.

Week 1: Dec 26 2017 – Jan 1 2018, Ecuador

Working days: 0 (December Holiday period)

Species identified: 162

Total to date: 162

6.48% of goal, 1.9% of year used

Sites visited: Galapagos Islands (San Cristobal, Española, Santa Cruz, Isabela), Puembo, Antisana, Papallacta, Guango Lodge, San Isidrio

Comments:

  1. Birding in the Galapagos is challenging, despite the low number of species and the relatively easy habitat (no dark rainforests or neck-breaking canopy to squint at). There are no outfits that I could find that specialize in providing birding guides or birding-specific tours. There are occasional fixed-date tours with limited numbers of spots, which cater to birders, but these types of tours never work for us – we need flexible dates. There are plenty of tour companies, but the guides tend to have little knowledge of bird species which are not crowd-pleasers, and the ones that we worked with were not good at identification. For example, our guides would point out Frigatebirds but couldn’t discriminate Magnificent from Great. Another ‘naturalist’ that we worked with could not ID a pair of American Oystercatchers. Day trips to interesting islands would be with a group of other people, none of whom would have much patience if you held up the group in order to pursue a Warbler Finch, for example. On the other hand, one cannot simply bird most of the island on their own, as a guide is required by law.
  2. Birding the Galapagos is, despite this, a worthwhile trip. It is a quality, not quantity, sort of experience. The birds (and other wildlife) are generally fearless and approachable and can be enjoyed in a most novel way.
  3. The ‘Darwin finches’ are a challenging lot. Our strategy was to photograph the most interesting ones and study the pictures after the fact. The Medium Ground Finches were ubiquitous and showed quite a range of bill sizes and shapes.
  4. A number of sources had said that December was a terrible month for having a chance to see Waved Albatross, but this was not our experience. We saw several while on the ferry from Santa Cruz to San Cristobal, and then saw at least a dozen on Isla Española.
  5. Speaking of ferries, they typically provide a poor birding platform in Galapagos, as they move very fast, don’t stop for birds or cetaceans, and usually have very limited seating with any kind of view. On several ferries, all I could do is take photos of rapidly receding seabirds and study them later.
  6. For our three days on mainland Ecuador, we worked with a pair of guides, Byron and Manuel, that are based out of Wildsumaco Lodge. I cannot recommend them highly enough. We had birded with them previously several years ago and on that first trip, had really ‘cleaned up’ on the easier birds. On this trip I gave them a list of target lifers, many of which were quite tough, and they delivered on the majority of them. We got Slate-Crowned Antpitta (seen), Red-Rumped Bush-Tyrant, Andean Condor, Purple-Backed Thornbill, Golden-Crowned Tanager, and the best look at any tapaculo (in this case a Long-Tailed Tapaculo) that we have ever had, to name a few. Look them up if you are in Ecuador.
  7. December 31 in Ecuador is quite an experience. One of the local customs is for small groups of people to use a rope or chain pulled taut across the road in order to stop traffic, while several others parade about in garish costumes and ask motorists for change, which they will ostensibly use to purchase alcohol for the night’s debaucheries. This generally involved men dressed in drag, gyrating and prancing about in the road. It was often LOL-funny.

Pass near Papallacta, Ecuador, Jan 1 2018. The recent snowfall brought a crowd up from Quito. Locals thought it was cold. For Minnesotans (our sons), it was more like a March day when shorts are appropriate attire.
