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.
