Our Father-Son Birding Adventure

There was a time when I was worried my son wasn’t spending enough time outdoors. As children, we had to be dragged back inside by our parents, while the opposite is true for our children today. I mentioned this worry to a family friend, and he suggested that, like him, my son also slowly start up birdwatching. It was, he said, an easy enough activity, and one that should be interesting enough to get him outdoors. After a lengthy conversation, my friend suggested a visit to Pangot, a place that he frequently visited in his early days of birding.
