  • Alabama

    I spent a couple of night in Alabama in June 2018. The swampy hardwood forest around Demopolis is some of the last of Alabama's "Black Belt" forest, a particularly rich ecosystem that has been hit hard. In two hours I saw two or three Eastern Woodrats.

  • Alaska

    In May 2006 I spent just 24 hours in Alaska and travelled on the ferry from Haines to Skagway during a trip around the Canadian Yukon. I saw a few Harbour Seals, but not the suposedly common Dall’s Porpoise nor the Mountain Goats that are often seen as the ship comes in to Skagway. I returned read more

  • Arizona

    I first visited Arizona for a few days in 1989, the highlight of which was a trek to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for an overnight stay and a battle with a Ringtail that was determined to separate me from my breakfast. I returned for a few days in September 1998, twice in 2010 , and again in 2012 and 2013 .

  • California

    California has very varied habitat (from desert to tundra) with a corresponding diversity of species, coupled with incredible scenery and some of the most productive cetacean viewing in the world, which make it a top mammal watching destination. I first visited in 1998 for ten days and barely scratched the surface. I have returned many times since then.

  • Colorado

    I love Colorado. I spent a week or so there in 1993 and it is one of my favourite states. Boulder is a great town, and the Rocky Mountain National Park has some of the most spectacular scenery I’ve seen, along with a range of quite visible mammals. Be sure to eat biscuits and gravy for breakfast at every opportunity.

  • Florida

    I have been to Florida many times, beginning in 1998 with a few days on my way back from Jamaica to the UK. My main aim then was to see a Manatee, which I did. That said, I was pretty disappointed not to find any Armadillos (a recurring theme of several trips to the USA). In May 2012 I returned to take part in the annual Southeastern Bat Diversity Network's annual Bat Blitz. In May 2012 I returned to take part in the annual Southeastern Bat Diversity Network's annual Bat Blitz. Each year scientists, bat workers and others from across the south eastern USA congregate for a 3 night intensive survey of a poorly surveyed area. Its a part social, part scientific event and in 2012 it was being run in the Apalachical State Forest and its vicinity, not far from Tallahassee. I have returned several times since.

  • Georgia (US State)

    In May 2012 I stopped in southern Georgia for a night on my way to a bat catching blitz in Florida. Round-tailed Muskrats are a species which has generated a fair bit of correspondence on the mammalwatching blog over the past couple of years and I know of no one who has seen one other than Vladimir Dinets, who reported seeing a couple at Grand Bay near Moody Air Force Bay in south-east Georgia.

  • Idaho

    Although I knew Idaho was famous for its potatoes, trout fishing and scenery, I didn’t know much about its mammals until 2008 when I started corresponding with Matt Miller. It quickly turned out that not only was Matt a nice guy and knew his mammals, but Idaho was also a good place to visit.
