Spring is on its way, and with it comes a glimmer of light and hope that we will be getting back to travel very soon! Although we must still follow many safety precautions, the vaccines should allow us to gather and enjoy in-person social opportunities.

Our Wildside Family is excited to be scheduling a number of our North American Big Year Tours as well as a few trips outside the USA, like Ecuador and the Galapagos!

Of course we will continue our Wildside Wednesday Webinars each week with many fun topics coming up.

Please join us for some fun and informational webinars and start planning your next “first” adventure!

The Great Rift Valley of Kenya is world-renowned for remarkable diversity of birds and wildlife amid beautiful landscapes. A chain of sparkling lakes nestled in an ancient valley are home to huge numbers of waders, raptors, shrikes, hornbills, and myriad other birds. Lake Bogoria and Lake Nakuru attract millions of flamingos that congregate in the unique soda waters fed by volcanic forces.

The fresh waters of Lake Baringo and Lake Naivasha sustain kingfishers, weavers and much more, in habitats that range from lush wetlands to semi-arid savannah. Kenya’s Rift Valley provides excellent opportunity to observe and enjoy an impressive array of bird species.

Join senior tour leader Adrian Binns as he shares avian highlights of this wonderful African region.

Now that winter 2020/2021 has finally come to an end and signs of spring are all around, join us for a casual recap of this past winter’s birding highlights from around the United States and beyond.

You may have heard about the finch ‘superflight’ that brought thousands of siskins, redpolls, grosbeaks, and crossbills into eastern US, but did you know there was also a major push of titmice, chickadees, nuthatches, and even Barred Owls further south this winter? Exciting rarities were found all over the country, including an unprecedented wave of vagrant Redwings into the northeast!

From backyard birding highlights to tips and tricks for attracting birds to your yard during the colder months, this will be a fun and informative webinar celebrating the end of an interesting winter and the arrival of spring!
