Ultra Rare Grenada Dove – In the forests of Grenada, one of the rarest birds in the world struggles to survive.

Searching for Solitaires – We brave the snow and ice to traverse the beautiful trails at Devil’s Lake State Park to look for a rare winter visitor: The Townsend’s Solitaire. These birds come through the state each winter, but due to the fact that they prefer nearly inaccessible terrain, they are always an adventure to try and locate.
