“Zabriskie” is a great little bookstore in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district. Their focus is on books at the intersection of nature and culture. A great place to start a birding trip. Interest was great – 80 people registered, I could only do the birding walk with two groups of ten each. We’ve heard only a few species, like swifts and robins, but it was a wonderful experience nevertheless to direct our attention away from human to bird sounds.
