A project I did that I didn't expect to like at all was the bird survey. Bird spotting always seemed stupid and boring to me, who would watch birds for three hours long? Well, apparently I would.
Here in the park they want to have an index of the birds that visit the park, where and how often. There are two methods in use to index the birds. With one you walk to the top of the mountain, to a viewpoint, and sit there for three hours to count the birds ...

... direction I might have thought there was not an ice cube’s chance in hell I was not completely lost. The road becomes ...well not even a road to speak of. It is more like driving a dried up riverbed. It is smaller than one lane at places and the most rocky bumpy road I have ever been on.
