David is very knowledgeable about birds and other aspects of nature. He was an informative and entertaining guide. We were able to see a variety of birds as well as butterflies and frogs. He had clearly planned the trip in advance and was well prepared.

There are always birds to see! In winter I'd recommend an eagle tour of Lake Monroe or a trip to Goose Pond to see the snow geese and raptors. (Sorry this is so late... I didn't receive a notification!)
