An Eco-Tour for the Bird: Hiking in Guatemala

ROBERT SIEGEL, Host:

For commentator Julie Zickefoose, a recent trip was all about one thing: a glimpse of an extremely rare bird.

JULIE ZICKEFOOSE: Only100 feet to go.

SIEGEL: Back at the foot of the mountain we all pool our money to tip the guides, hoping to buy a little more time for the guan.

SIEGEL: Julie Zickefoose lives in Whipple, Ohio. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
