Over the years I've done this wildlife
safari we have had some amazing encounters. One
year it was river otters and mink, another year it was bald eagles
and pheasants, at other times ducks, tundra swans, and raptors.
Probably my favorite trip was a couple of years ago when we had
dozens of encounters with the male northern harrier - the gray ghost.
refuges we go to have good access, and good places to stay nearby.
The shooting can be very steady, and at times very fast - and this
safari is an opportunity to really capture images of species that
are difficult to photograph.
We drive up the day before, February 26, and
stop at Sacramento NWR for a couple of laps around the refuge, then
head up to Klamath if we are going there. You can meet at my
house, or meet me at Sacramento NWR on the 26th. The hotels and food are
all reasonably priced. This is a cold weather safari so come
prepared with warm boots, gloves, overcoat, etc.
The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, Venmo, or credit card, and
the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the
safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then
full payment is due. Check the main safari page for other

in the American West. The first 24
years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. The photo safaris that I lead are all to
the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife
activity periods. What a rush it has been.
