A note to express my sincere thanks to you and Tenzin for a most fabulous birding tour through the Unique Kingdom of Bhutan. Your knowledge of the birds and mammals of your nation is indeed impressive and extensive. Your hearing and sight are what we all wish we had…and could maintain…well into our senior years. All eight of us gained a vast insight into the natural history and cultural specialties of Bhutan. Your guidance, knowledge and sincere but light-hearted approach to education were truly appreciated. I do plan to return, hopefully with a group from Canada, who will, I am certain, enjoy your mountainous, forested and pristine country as much as we did. With your guidance, we saw and heard 300 bird species, plus a dozen mammals or so. There are more to see, so a return trip is on my list.
