Black-throated Gray Warbler pops into the open | Magee Marsh Warbler Bird Safari

Bird Photography is about Action and Interaction: Warbler Heaven

Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

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

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 info. Link Spouses can ride/walk along at no charge, but you must have your own vehicle.

Dates : Monday, May 13-15    $1500

Participants : max of 3 clients.

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.
