Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

This safari is a first for me.  After spending decades hearing about the amazing warbler photography that is possible, and knowing that I can never shoot more warblers than about 15 in the west, and that there are 35 types of warblers I've never shot at this location - I'm excited to make a run at these amazing birds.  We fly into Toledo, Ohio, and I plan on renting a vehicle once there.  Magee Marsh is known far and wide, so hand-holding might be a tremendous advantage while shooting, plus I think a tripod amidst the other photographers might just be too unwieldy.

This first safari is something I'm looking forward to, as a bird photographer it would be difficult not to go to Magee Marsh when it is such an iconic location, much like Bosque del Apache.

Plan on flying into Toledo on Sunday, April 30.  I have not selected the hotel location yet, but that is coming.  We will shoot through Wednesday at lunch, then head out - so the return flight can be the evening of May 3.  As with all the safaris, we will split the cost of local travel.  I expect moderate weather.  We will do some walking on trails and boardwalks, but nothing lengthy.

The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, 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 information.  Spouses can ride/walk along at no charge, but you must have your own vehicle to travel in.  Link 
I've spent my 38-year wildlife photography career shooting in the American West.  The first 23 years shooting out of Utah, the past 15 years out of California.  With 1500 published photo credits, dozens of magazine covers and article, and a lifetime wandering the roads of the west, the photo safaris that I lead are all to the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife activity periods. 
Difficulty Level Dates

Moderate  -  lots of walking Monday, May 1-3    $1400
All the warbler photos on this page are from the west, but I will replace these with the warblers I get at Magee Marsh next year.  From the top, a Black-throated Gray Warbler, and then left - Wilson's  Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, MacGillivray's Warbler, Townsend's Warbler.  On the bottom is a Hermit Warbler. Here are just a few warblers I want to shoot at Magee Marsh: Prothonotary warbler, Magnolia warbler, Kirtland's warbler, Blackburnian warbler, Bay-breasted warbler, Scarlet tanager, Baltimore oriole, Mourning warbler, Cape May warbler, Black-throated Green warbler, Chestnut-sided warbler, Black-throated Blue warbler - and so many more.  I would be happy to photograph a dozen new species in 2023, and a different dozen in 2024.
