RARE Bird Alert Tape, sponsored by Piney Woods Wildlife Society: 821-2846. A BRIEF PROFILE OF WINGS, INC. by Bob Behrstock WINGS, Inc. Is one of the major tour companies specializing in trips for bird watchers. The new catalog lists slightly more than 80 events, including 27 weekends in popular birding spots throughout the U.S. and Canada. Currently we are offering trips to 30 of approximately 40 countries we visit on six continents. White most of our itineraries emphasize birding, a number of trips combine archeology, cultural exploration, a little shopping and more general travel pursuits. Such tours include Great Britain, Greece, Charleston, South Carolina, Taos, New Me"xico and an extensive train trip across South America. While a handful of trips involve sleeping in tents, Mongolian yurts or other shelters, most utilize as good an accomodation as the area offers, including some which are truly deluxe. WINGS' predecessor was born in 1974 when Will Russell, currently Managing Director, and Davis Finch formed Northeast Birding, which stressed the Northeastern U.S. and' Canada. In 1977 Rich Stall- cup joined, enriching the company with his specialized knowledge of western birds. In July, 1980 WINGS was formed and in August, 1982 WINGS purchased SUNBIRD, a tour company in England, greatly enhancing our Old World coverage and theirs in the New World. Among the roughly thirty leaders guiding WINGS tours are a number of well-known writers and artists, including Jon Dunn, principal consultant for the popular National Geographic Society field guide, Peter Grant, author of Gulls: A Guide to Identification, and Killian Mullarney, who, along with Peter Grant, is preparing a new field guide to the birds of Europe and the Middle East. Most of WINGS' leaders reside in the U.S., but some live in Canada, Britain, Australia, Africa and the Far East. All are chosen for their knowledge, humor, leadership and patience; this last trait being perhaps most important to new or less skilled birders. All of the leaders are itinerant naturalists, versed in other aspects of natural history, and enjoy mammals, fish, plants, insects, stars and other bonuses typically encountered during a birding excursion. Information about WINGS' itineraries, leaders, and tour mechanics is available from WINGS, Inc., P.O. Box 31930, Tuscon AZ 85751, or call 602-749- 1967 to inquire.
