Oaxaca January 2022 Bird Photography (one space remaining)
Thursday January 20, 2022 – Friday January 28, 2022
On this trip we will spend time in two general areas of the Mexican state of Oaxaca. We will begin our travels near the Pacific coast in search of photos of birds like Blue Bunting, Orange-breasted Bunting, Red-breasted Chat, Garnet-throated Hummingbird, Slaty Vireo, Cinnamon-bellied Flowerpiercer and more. From there we will spend time photographing birds in the vicinity of Oaxaca City. With hopes of catching up with species like Red Warbler, Golden-browed Warbler, Slate-throated Redstart, Gray Silky Flycatcher, Boucard’s Wren, Bridled Sparrow, Dwarf Jay and many more.
The main objective of this trip is to make beautiful photos of a variety of colorful birds that are unique to this area though if good photographic opportunities for more wide-spread species present themselves we will not hesitate to pursue them. Given that this is a photography trip, it is best suited for those with a basic understanding of photography and appropriate photographic equipment. This doesn’t mean that participants will need to be experts or have top-shelf gear. A secondary goal of the trip is for all participants to advance their photography and birding skills and everyone is encouraged to share their knowledge and experience with the group.
