This frst issue of the ABA's Birder's Guide series strives to provide you with helpful, practical information to enhance your future birding travel experiences. Are you pondering a new location to visit? Articles on New Brunswick, Louisiana, and Colombia aim to persuade you to consider what may be some new possible destinations. If you've never been birding on a boat, or even if you have, pelagic birding guru Debi Shearwater offers not-to-be missed advice in her "Pelagic Birding Primer". Not sure what (and what not) to pack? Alan Knue's "Birding 411" article is here to help get you through airport security as easily as possible. And Diana Doyle's "Tech Tips for Travel" offers sound advice on which apps and websites can help you make the most of your trip once you get there. Speaking of websites, be sure to drop in at every once in a while. We plan on offering expanded online content as the series progresses. Look for the symbol on the left to get all the online details. No matter what your interests, or your time and ability to travel, I hope you will fnd something useful in this issue. If you didn't, please let us know what you'd like to see in the next issue. Let us know what you liked, too, so that we can start planning next year's Birder's Guide to Travel.
