Below you will find the outline of my 2019 trips and tours. The outing details will be added month-by-month, beginning with January. I may fiddle around with the titles of tours themselves, but tour dates are solid unless otherwise stated. My hope is that by posting the outline early, you are able to better plan your birding year ahead! 2019 will be my fourth year as a full-time birding guide; thanks so much for your continued support. I am living the dream 🙂
