Birding Innsbruck, Austria in Winter

10,000 Birds

Before my trip to Austria that bridged January and February, I had never really had that country high on my list of places I wanted to go. What I knew of Austria was very little: The Sound of Music, mountains and skiing, Vienna, Hitler’s birthplace, Krampus, good beer, and often confused with Australia. But when Swarovski Optik reaches out and offers a trip to Austria you take it even if it is in the depths of winter. Trips Austria Europe Innsbruck

I then lived in Central America where there were more bird species than my bird books (and my competence) could hope to identify. The Tirolean Alps are – well – rather barren by comparison. But then again, those are some pretty hard acts to follow.
