Immerse yourself in a great gathering of waterfowl in their premiere wintering grounds of the west. Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge offers dawn-to-dusk opportunities among thousands of Snow geese, Sandhill cranes and other migratory birds.
Consider this a prime location for long-lens wildlife photography. Even though many birds are tolerant of nearby viewers, some of the situations are best captured with 400mm to 600mm telephoto lenses. If you don’t own a long lens, we recommend renting one. We also recommend bringing two camera bodies – one attached to a long lens on your tripod and the other on a strap with something like 24-120mm for wider shots like groups of birds or the sky filled with flying Snow geese.
Our days include daily sunrise/morning and afternoon/sunset field trips that may be extended when conditions are good. Expect a few midday classroom sessions and image reviews, as well as field lessons on location.
This trip is limited to twelve participants and includes two instructors. That means you will get all the help you can possibly stand.
