Video: Around the World in 6852 Birds

I have to admit, I'm not much of a birder. I do enjoy spotting unique, colorful, and unusual species of birds in the wild, particularly when I'm visiting another country. But, Arjan Dwarshuis – the subject of the video below – took birdwatching to an entirely new level back in 2016 when he set a new record for spotting the most species – 6852 in fact – in a single year. To do that, he had to visit 40 different countries, traveled on 140 flights, and was on the go for 366 days. It is quite a story of dedication and commitment. Check it out below.
