Client comment

"We chose this tour on the recommendation of friends and previous experience with Field Guides. The in-depth look at a premier birding area appealed greatly. Excellent trip. Rose Ann Rowlett was outstanding, both for her birding expertise and her naturally warm and gracious interactions with staff and participants. Office service was good. Prompt response to inquiries, and special arrangements made without fuss. Best tour experience so far -- the professionalism of the guides is much appreciated."

ROSE ANN ROWLETT: Field Guides Leader

Rose Ann Rowlett (Grebe) and her brother grew up birding in Austin, Texas, where she got started during a second-grade unit on nature. Her enduring love for Neotropical birds began in 1960 when she went on her first of many birding trips to Mexico.

After graduate school in botany and ornithology, Rose Ann began guiding tours to the Neotropics in 1974, was a principal of VENT for eight years, and co-founded Field Guides in 1985. Having had a wonderful time guiding more than 300 tours worldwide, she's retiring in 2016, save for perhaps an occasional tour here or there. She's looking forward to having more time for reading, processing, and traveling with her sweetie, Richard Webster; oh, and working on her "water-feature list" at their home in Portal, Arizona.
