Anyone up for a Big Bend trip?

DUNCANVILLE, TEXAS — People continue reporting wonderful things from Big Bend. To wit:

  • Fan-tailed Warbler (first documented Texas record and one of only very few for the USA)
  • Red-faced Warbler
  • a pygmy owl
  • Lucifer Hummingbirds
  • etc.

I’m practically drooling on my keyboard, and I’ve started contemplating a crazy-insane Labor Day trip to the park. But I’d need a companion (or two), and preferably a high-clearance (maybe 4WD?) vehicle. It will probably be hot, and there will be a LOT of hiking. Do any of my readers care to join me in the expedition? If so, I need to know fast. Like by Friday.

Let’s go!

    Oh man, if I didn’t already have a trip to Maine planned, I might have taken you up on this. Maybe we can arrange a Colima Warbler hunt there sometime next year or the year after (aka post-wedding).

    Good luck, David. I am rooting for you.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if you up and did this alone. Don’t leave without pre-arranged prayers being said for you the whole time.

    Where’s Shroud when you need him?

    I’ll be in SW Kansas birding the Cimarron Nat’l Grasslands. Big Bend is high on my list of places right now. Some day, some day.

    Wow, I haven’t been to Big Ben since I was 16, but I want to go back something awful! I hope you were able to take the trip!
