GREAT GREY OWLS PHOTO WORKSHOP
Cost and Logistics
June 21st – Arrival to Vancouver airport, transfer to a nice hotel. Evening presentation on bird and wildlife photography by Ken Archer.
June 22nd – This morning we will visit Reifel Refuge to photograph Wood Ducks and other waterbirds and songbirds such as Spotted Towhee. Then we will check out and drive 3-4 hours to the interior of British Columbia. We will check into our hotel and then have our first Great Grey Owl photography session in the afternoon. A nice hotel in the area.
June 23rd to 25th – We will have three full days of owl and bird photography. We hope to get flight shots, hunting shots with prey, portraits and feeding shots of the Great Grey Owls. Getting feeding shots will require some patience and we will sometimes stay with owls for fairly long periods of time. Great Greys are normally quite tolerant of people so long as we don’t get really close. We will also be on the lookout for nesting woodpeckers, Mountain Bluebirds, Western Tanagers and other bird species. The interior of British Columbia is lovely countryside and we will be staying in a nice hotel where we will review the day’s photography and activity at dinner each night. We will generally have mid-day breaks for lunch and to rest a bit as the days will be long in late June.
June 26th – We will have one more morning with the Great Grey Owls, then we will check out, have lunch and return to the Vancouver, BC area where we will have an afternoon shoot at Reifel Refuge again. We will stay in a nice hotel near the Vancouver, BC airport.
June 27th – Transfer to the airport for your return flight home.
