Boudhanath Prayer Flags - On Halloween Night...

BIRD LIST for NEPAL - Recently Updated!!!

Holy Toledo have we been seeing a TON of amazing birds!!!  Karen has been a birding phenom everywhere we go.  Binoculars always at the ready, bird book in hand...  She's even started a "birding club" at the Kailash Hostel, which offers subsidized room and board for 80-90 of the students at our volunteer school.

Many of these birds were spotted out in the hills during our Annapurna Circuit trek. She hopes to add some photos too....   Here is the list.... so far!
