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, which leaves 35
types of warblers I've never shot at - I'm excited for my
second trip. Magee Marsh can be crowded, so
hand-holding might be an advantage with other
photographers and birders around.
Difficulty Level : Moderate
Some the warbler photos on this page
are from the west, some from my first trip to Magee Marsh.
There are more birds than just warblers at Magee Marsh - there are
blue-gray gnatcatchers, golden-crowned kinglets, eastern screech
owls, bald eagles, screech owls,
herons, Carolina chickadees, thrushes, woodpeckers, cardinals,
flickers, swans, etc.
Plan on flying into Toledo on Sunday, May 12.
I have not selected the hotel location yet, but will.
We will shoot through Wednesday at lunch or later, then head out if
you have a
return flight the evening of May 15. As with all the
safaris, we will split the cost of local travel.
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
Spouses can ride/walk along at no charge, but you must have your own

Safari Checklist -
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.
