Male Vermilion Flycatcher drops by to feed a fledgling | Morongo Valley Bird Safari

Bird Photography is about Action and Interaction: Greatest California Songbird Safari

Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

There is no better songbird safari in California than this Morongo Valley Bird Safari.  My record here is 48 species in one day - everything from tanagers, bluebirds, flycatchers, grosbeaks, kingbirds, hawks, falcons, owls, thrashers, goldfinches, hummingbirds, wrens - and so many more. 

The areas that we shoot have an amazing variety of songbirds - all nesting, and active.  The mornings and days are comfortable, but can warm up in the afternoon - so a hat, sunscreen, lipbalm, etc are needed. 

For those who don't ride with me, we meet in Yucca Valley, CA - just a few miles east of Morongo Valley on the morning of April 24.  I drive in that morning and then stay that night at a local hotel.   There are hotels and cafes in Yucca Valley, while Morongo Valley has a gas station and cafe only. 

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 
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.

Difficulty Level : Moderate

In past years we have shot long-eared owl chicks at a nest, great horned owls at a nest, red-tailed hawks at a nest, and numerous other birds.

Dates :  Wednesday, April 24-25   $600
