Off to the Galapagos

Tomorrow morning my group of 13 and I fly from Quito to the Galapagos for a week-long birding and natural history cruise through the islands on the Integrity. This is my third trip to the Galapagos, but my first time in November. We'll be stopping at a couple spots new for me too, so maybe I'll see something new. A migrant from the north, or perhaps Galapagos Martin.

I'll be coming home with a lot of photos, believe me. Here's a very brief sampler from my first trip there in late June, 2007. Enjoy.

  1. Have fun! I can't wait to see all the photos!

  2. Looking forward to hearing more--I'm told it's already been adventuresome.

  3. Oh, hush up, Rick. It's going to go swimmingly!

  4. Good luck with the Galapagos Martin

    I was there in June and missed it.
