Dear Bird Talk,

I spend five months in Florida each year – mid-November to mid-April. When in Canada, I go to Lewiston, NY for a few hours about once every three weeks. Are those trips added to my out-of-country days? Could I be exceeding the six-month total by making these daily trips? They are never more than a couple of hours each time.

Response :
Ed.: Any trip of a few hours is considered as a day in the U.S., so I would be very careful about adding up all of the time spent to make sure that it remains at less than the six months allowed.
