-Peregrine falcons are powerful, fast flying birds of prey that hunt on the wing for small to medium sized birds. We will be photographing these birds from a unique vantage point that will allow for several different types of images including free-flying, landing, take off, and perched. We will have a high probability of seeing these birds with prey and performing many different behaviors.
-Wood ducks sport some of the most exquisite plumage of any bird in North America. We will have the opportunity to photograph these birds up close and personal and in a setting that brings out all of their splendid colors.
So please consider joining me on this wonderful tour as we spend quality time with these magnificent birds.
Workshop fee does not include: Cost of getting to Hotel in Teaneck/Glenpointe, New Jersey; meals; alcoholic beverages; gratuities, and anything else not explicitly stated in the "Included" list.
