This winter (2003) I had the pleasure of working with Joyce Duvall and Sarah Reiter of Ambassadair Travel Club of Indianapolis, helping them organize a Sunday-to-Sunday birding trip to the Southern Caribbean island of Tobago. Our group of 12, including me, was a subset of a full complement of 150 participants aboard an Ambassadair excursion to Tobago.

This trip to Tobago was unquestionably the best I've ever had there. That's saying a lot when you consider it was my 46th visit!
