Ethiopia Bound.

Leaving for Ethiopia 
in a Few Days

    The combination of inclement weather, other duties that couldn't be put off and preparations for my trip have kept me from blogging for the past week. Given the fact that I will be busy right up until Friday morning when I will leave home at 03:00h to travel to Toronto for a 06:00h flight to Washington Dulles where I will connect with a flight to Addis Ababa, I doubt that I'll be contributing much before I leave.
    So, to everyone who makes this blogging community so enjoyable, I will say farewell for now, and I'll be back with you the first week of February.
    Good birding to everyone!


  1. All the best for that connection, David, and a great stay in Ethiopia!

    Looking forward to seeing the spoils of your trip in February.

  2. Thanks so much Richard. I'll look forward to reconnecting.

  3. Have a nice trip and a safe return home :)

  4. Have a great trip. I'll look forward to reading all about it.

  5. Have a wonderful trip to Ethiopia. I do hope you will be safe & secure there. Best Wishes.

  6. See you later back David.....have a nice time there.

    Greetings, Joop

  10. Good grief David, with this horrific weather in the States I sincerely hope all will go well for your trip.
    you will have a ball in Ethiopia and will come back with astonish photos!
    Enjoy it!

    1. Merçi beaucoup Noushka. J'espère qu'il fera beau temps Vendredi!

    2. Will you be going to Lalibella?
      That is a place I would love to visit one day!
      Can't wait to see your footage when you are back!
      I sincerely hope to be back in the US one day!
      Meeting you would be a must!
      Cheers David!

  11. Hi again Noushka. No, I will not be visiting Lalibella. It is strictly a birding trip. I had an option to visit Lalibella at the end of my trip but it is a fairly costly addition and I can't really spare another four or five days. I would be happy to have you visit and I will roll out the ornithological red carpet for you...but I am in Canada, not the USA!

  12. Have a good trip David - enjoy the warmth.
