Photos from outside of the neotropics

While the vast majority of my photos are from the Neotropics, I also enjoy traveling in other parts of the word, and I am including links to those trips here.. As with the rest of the website, all photos are of wild, unrestrained birds (and other animals).

It is currently organized in chronological order by trip, though all photos will also appear in the main species index.

These galleries are all now on Flickr.
