Maybe the ultimate tick would be to re-discover a bird thought to be extinct. Like the people that saw the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. What a buzz that would have been.

I just saw an episode of Attenborough's "Life of Birds" featuring the Arctic
Owl, and I was thinking I wouldn't mind going to see one. Quite a long
distance twitch, but definitely worth it. Second place would have to be a
massive flock (carnival?) of flamingoes somewhere exotic, Namibia or Zambia
or the like. Any other fantasy twitches out there?
