  1. (Day 6) We walked around the city of Maastricht and around the un1vers1ty campus. There were some green areas there that yielded several more lifers. Had some nice views from the top of the church tower.P1010170.thumb.JPG.ca79c35801a74589cfeb8dbe0fc19803.JPGP1010171.thumb.JPG.609d44b277927e6bb8bd3c8822526f4b.JPG

  2. (Day 5) It was raining pretty much all day. We left Germany and drove into the Netherlands with a rental car. In Zutfen we stopped to visit relatives, and I saw my lifer Gray Heron. While driving, I also saw quite a few gulls, likely Black-headed. We continued to Maastricht to visit family.

    (Day 2) A Carrion Crow hopped on the runway as we taxied after a smooth landing at Frankfurt Airport. Shortly after driving out with the rental car, I witnessed a Common Wood-Pigeon land on a wire. I saw many many more of these on the long trip to the farm in the countryside where my grandfather, aunt, and cousins live. I noticed White Storks in several fields, as well as Common Swifts and a Eurasian Kestrel flying overhead. 

    Once we arrived, I was able to do some birding.
