Europe 1000!

Honestly, I'm traveling alot lately. No sooner did we return from Singapore and Malaysia and I shipped out to Europe for work. I had 2 weeks at home with a few of our migrating warblers and then boom - off to cold, dreary northern Europe. My itinerary for this trip is overwhelming. I flew to Brussels Belgium on Sunday, spent the day seeing the sights, worked Monday, flew to Stockholm Sweden on Tuesday, spent the afternoon seeing the sights, worked all day Wednesday and then flew to Warsaw Poland Wednesday night, worked Thursday morning and did some sight-seeing Thursday afternoon. Friday is a full day of work again.

I'm pooped but need to report that in the midst of all of that I managed to see my 1,000th bird in Stockholm which is a pretty cool milestone. The bird was Hooded Crow. 

Hooded Crow - number 1000

The funniest thing about the sighting is that I was with my work group and not intending to look for birds at all. We were on our way to the ABBA Museum which we eventually found.

Yup, that's Sam, Cameron, me and Pat posing behind the big poster with cut out faces. We HAD to do it.

More about the rest of the trip later. I just returned to the hotel after a night of funk music in Warsaw and need to get some sleep.

"My, my. At Waterloo, Napolean did surrender.

Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way."

(That's from one of my favorite songs from Abba, called Waterloo".

Congrats on the 1000th bird! Woohoo! Can't wait to hear more about your trip.
