White Storks in Bulgaria
Just back from 10 days of traveling in Europe, and seriously sleep-deprived, I'm beginning to review the many encounters with fascinating birds in Bulgaria, Turkey, Switzerland and France. On one early morning walk on my friends' farm in France, I unknowingly crossed the border into a patch of forest in Switzerland. The border guards that came driving through seemed quite surprised to find me there with binoculars, but my bird book served as a convincing passport, and they drove away smiling. I saw White Storks in Basel, Switzerland, but wasn't able to get decent photos until a few days later in Bulgaria.
