New England's Breeding Birds
Friday, June 1, 2018 to Sunday June 9, 2018
If you are interested in this trip please let us know as soon as possible as we must make reservations well in advance. It is very difficult for us to add participants at the last minute. Even if you aren't 100% sure that you want to go please let us know that you might be interested right away so we can prepare accordingly.
Every year hoards of birds make their way from their diverse wintering grounds to the beautiful and verdant habitats of New England to breed. On this trip we will visit a variety of habitats with the intention of photographing many of these amazing and often colorful birds as well as any other wildlife and interesting scenery we may encounter along the way.
This trip will take us from the Atlantic shoreline where we can find birds like eiders and Saltmarsh Sparrows to the mountains of the Presidential Range where we will search out species like Bicknell’s Thrush and Blackpoll Warbler. We will also spend time along the US/Canada border in the boreal forest seeking our species like Rusty Blackbird, Black-backed Woodpecker, Common Loons in their dapper breeding plumage and loads of colorful warblers. The highlight of the trip will be go on two boat rides (weather permitting) to visit a breeding colony of Atlantic Puffins and chances to photograph them at close range from a blind.
We have run this trip for several years and continually try to tune it for the best experience possible. Our goal is to offer participants many opportunities to capture images of these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat and achieve the best results possible. We expect that you will go home with plenty of photos that you will be proud to show to others. To help us to meet this expectation we limit the group size to six participants.
