The Birds of Bonnie Scotland

Jackdaw

I’m writing this from the Glasgow Airport in Scotland, as Ingrid and prepare for our flight back to the USA after a weeklong motor coach tour of Scotland.

Unlike most of our vacations as of late . . . this was not a birding trip but a good old fashion leisure trip where we toured ancient castles, drank local whiskey, sang Loch Lomond (over and over and over), and had a wonderful time.

But being birders . . . we could not resist occasionally scanning the bushes, meadows and trees . . . we looked through field guides and recorded our sightings.  Our birding generally consisted of five minutes here and five minutes there, usually while waiting for other travelers to return from the “loo” or gift shops.

I can only conclude . . . the birds across the Pond are very different than in the states . . . and we have a lot of learning to do should we want to seriously bird the British Isles.
