Welcome to Wild Places, Wild Birds
Follow WPWB as we wander into wild places in search of wild experiences, especially the beauty of wild birds. Over the past 10 years, we have traveled overseas to Japan, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria. In North America, we have visited Canada, Ohio, Colorado, Montana, South Carolina, Vermont, and have lived in North Carolina and Michigan. From our new home in Michigan, we look forward to more travels in Canada and the western United States.
Enjoy reading about our travels, outdoor adventures, and birding. We have traveled to Japan, Europe, and from North Carolina up to Michigan, Vermont, Canada, Montana, and Wyoming. We now sometimes travel using a T@B RV trailer.
Recording bird sounds just might be more enjoyable than looking at birds. I have made a decent collection of North Carolina bird sounds and hope to add many Michigan birds soon.
A little collection of this and that about birding. What is "birding"? Why people bird, how to bird, what you need, what you don't need.
Collections of the best bird images and other nature photography I have had the privilege to experience.
Some of our most enjoyable moments outdoors, including videos from Japan and Europe, skiiing in Michigan, birding in, well, lots of places, and dogs.
