Klamath Falls Wildlife Safari             Tuesday, February 4-6, 2020    $900  ($720)

The Lower Klamath NWR safaris in 2017 and 2018 were amazing.  While many people travel to this refuge for the wintering bald eagles, we not only encountered them, but also river otters, mink, northern harriers, rough-legged hawks, pheasants, tundra swans, thousands of geese and ducks, coyotes, and great horned owls. We found and photographed the family of river otters (5) every safari day in 2017 doing the usual river otter stuff (like eating fish, playing, etc) as well as two encounters with rare mink - an animal I'm not sure I've ever seen before in the west.  A blast of cold arctic air and a snowstorm days before gave us the perfect habitat to encounter these critters throughout the refuge. Snow or not, this is a great wildlife safari.


We meet in Klamath Falls the night before the safari begins, Monday, February 3. I have three spaces in my truck for those wanting to car pool, and we usually leave early enough to spend a few hours in the Sacramento NWR on the way north.  Other possible shooting locations besides Sacramento NWR on the way there and back - is Merced NWR.
