Travel to Turkey!

semi-overcast 66 °F

Hello all,

This post is brief because I am VERY tired because of jet-lag.

My mom, Pearl, and I flew a Turkish Airlines A330 to Istanbul, Turkey today. My dad will join us when we travel to Italy on Thursday.

Also, here are some photos from a neighborhood bird walk I led yesterday:

It was a productive walk with about thirty species in total and four participants.

Today in Turkey I saw common urban birds including HOUSE CROWS and two life birds: EUROPEAN TURTLE DOVE and ALEXANDRINE PARAKEET.

I promise a longer, more detailed post tomorrow!

Stay tuned and good birding,

Henry
