In December I’ll be heading to Peru for a birding tour with Kolibri Expeditions. Obviously, I’m very excited! But also more than a little daunted. This will be my first time in South America, and my first birding tour ever. So I’ve got a lot to prepare for. I need to figure out what to pack, what to wear, what medicines and immunizations I need, and many other things that I probably haven’t even realized I need to think about. Oh, and then there’s the 800-1000 bird species that I need to study.
I’ll post about the actual trip itself when I get back, of course, but I thought the preparations beforehand also deserved to be discussed. After all, there are plenty of trip reports on the web, but not many resources to tell you how to prepare for a trip. So over the next few months I’ll be posting about the preparations as they are made. Hopefully, it will be helpful to others, just as I hope it will keep me from forgetting something important!
