Bird Life List

You don't need to be a birdwatcher to keep a bird life list. Birds are a facet of travel, like regional food and history.

A copic marker sketch of Cuban Parrots in Flight

You cannot avoid birds as a traveler; they are the nearest thing to the most constant symbol of place wherever you go. They are in the city and in the country; they are in every habitat, including above the oceans far from land. You also cannot avoid birdwatchers wherever you go - they too are in the city and country, out there in the desert and above the ocean; a constant in travel. As a traveler, I have learned to appreciate both birds and the people who pursue them.

In the form of a bird life list, I've adopted the same passion and addiction as any birdwatcher out there, and I am not bothered by the strange way non-birdwatchers act around discussion of tallying a list of birds. However, I have always perceived birding differently than most birdwatchers. The way I approach it is not as a hobby, per se, but as an inseparable aspect of travel, as vital to the traveler's palette as tasting local food or talking to the locals.

Birding is a life-long lesson in biology, distribution and geography, and keeping a list of all the birds I have seen in my life pushes me to find new places and habitats on the road. A birdwatcher learns to see in a very different way than non-birders; making anybody who pursues birds on the road much more likely to observe things about a place than those who don't. I talk about this in my notes from the Bahia Palace in Marrakech, Morocco.

As of the Sage Thrasher, my bird life list includes 1,082 species, or about ten percent of the species in the world. My Bird Life List is alphabetical, and includes marker and watercolor sketches throughout.

I also keep a butterfly life list, although I continue to work on identifying these challenging identifications.
