Three Bald Eagles relax after a morning of hunting fish | Utah Raptor Safari

Winter brings together a myriad of Predators and Prey: It's About Raptors and Owls

Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull
Winter brings a large population of bald eagles and raptors to Farmington Bay WMA along the Great Salt Lake in northern Utah.  On one of my first safaris there in 2008 I counted 172 bald  Utah's winters are cold, forcing many raptors and owls to hunt in the daytime.  This gives us a chance to photograph birds like bald eagles, short-eared owls, barn owls, northern harriers, American kestrels, rough-legged hawks, and many others that hunt the refuges.  We travel to Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake where species such as Chukars, pronghorn, bison, mule deer, great horned owls, bighorn sheep, and coyotes roam the island. We meet in Woods Cross, Utah, just five miles north of Salt Lake City on I-15 on Sunday night, January 28.  Local hotel accommodations and restaurants are relatively inexpensive and I generally stay at the Comfort Inn in Woods Cross.  Up to three other photographers can ride with me from California if you are doing the Yellowstone Winter Safari, or ride with me each day from Woods Cross.

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.  The main safari page has other info.  Link 
I've spent my 40-year wildlife photography career shooting 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.

We also go to the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Brigham City to photograph migrating birds: tundra swans, ducks and geese, striped skunks, raccoons, and raptors.  FYI - the only safari where I can guarantee porcupines.
