You are every birding guide's dream.


Greg Roberts


"If this is turning into a "what do birding guides do wrong?" thread I will

just add that the only real problem I have had with birding guides is the

ones who get too stressed when the target species don't turn up. Perhaps

this is due to their experience of (foolish) clients who get angry when

they don't see these species, but it has ruined a couple of days guided

birding for me in the past.


Nowadays I make a point of saying to the guide (if it's a small group or

just me) "I want to see these birds, but I won't be upset if we don't, I

don't expect birds to arrange their lives for my convenience".
