On Monday Molly and I travel to Norway. For the next ten days we will cruise up the coast of Norway from Bergen to Tromso (north of the Arctic Circle) on Hurtigruten, the ferry system which services all the Norwegian coastal towns. Upon reaching Tromso will will Nordic Ski (no races!) by day, and search for the Northern Lights by night! Given early March is not yet migration time, birding opportunities will likely be limited, but I will still keep an eye out for our feathered friends!
Stay tuned to this blog for updates as we ski and search for the Aurora! Yesterday was my last birding day in the USA. I volunteered all day at the Sax-Zim Bog Welcome Center. The number of winter birds is really starting to drop.
