About Us


We are Bob and Arlyne Draper.  We have traveled a lot in our married life and continue to do so.    We have two grown children and six grandchildren.  We’ve been around the block a few times, to our enormous benefit.  We have been pretty serious birders (and serious amateur photographers) for over 10 years.  We started late with this passion but in all our travels we check out the bird landscape.  We have been fortunate to do birding in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Peru, Canada and over part of the United States.  Arlyne is from Costa Rica and I’m from Arizona.  We like to pass along experiences we’ve had on the road (or not) and perhaps hear from like-minded people.  We don’t expect to have thousands of followers but that’s OK.  We hope we can entertain and inform and share our favorite stories and adventures with other people.  We are currently in our motor-home, having left our house in the hands of friendly renters while we’re on the road.  Check for the occasional personal stories, bird pictures, and other notes as we go along.  Thanks for your interest and we hope you’re having as much fun as we are.

Regards, Bob and Arlyne

    It’s very fortunate you are able to travel wherever you wish in your motorhome and take such beautiful pictures along the way. It’s great for those who cannot travel, to be able to enjoy the talents of people like you two, who are able to pass along your works. I thank you for sharing all these beautiful pictures. I enjoy so very much. We also are motorhome people having traveled over 30 years in motorhomes, fifth wheels and even a 31 foot trailer pulled by our 76 Cadillac years ago, so we relate to what you’re doing. We’ve met so many people along the way and love sharing with them also.

    Hello Bob and Arlyne, came across your site by chance, So good to hear that all is well with you. Things are a little slow around here at this time, I am recovering from back surgery. We think of you and remember old times. We sold our motorhome a few years ago and took up cruising. Hard to believe we have been retired over twenty years. Hawaii was great,but Teas is the only place for us. 🙂 Love your bird photos, ya’ll do a great job. Take care and if you are ever in our neck of the woods, come by for a visit. We would love to see you.

    Pat and Army Curtis
