Here's an interesting chance to go birding for a whole week with David Sibley. Might be fun!

Yeah it would be, but did you see the price? Probably worth it in the end.

~Price includes lodging, meals, airport shuttle, and all activities. Cost is $2500.~
It was at the bottom like the 2nd paragraph.

You think so? I don't think that's bad at ALL. I'd drop $2500 for a week long photo lesson from Arthur Morris in a heartbeat, and I definitely don't have $2500 just sitting around. Nevermind that all of the lodging, activities, etc that are included. I think that price is a steal, especially when you think about who you're birding with!

The amount you'd learn in a week's time birding with David Sibley would be astounding.

Well you do have a good point there! Didn't really think of all the thinks you would learn from him!
