Tour Itinerary- subject to change
We meet in the motel lobby in Haines, Alaska, for an orientation session followed by dinner at a local restaurant.
Days 2 to 6:
For these six days our energies are focused on photographing bald eagles in every phase of their winter behavior. Our cameras will be trained on them as they feed, roost on dramatic weathered snags, and patrol up and down the Chilkat River searching for expired salmon. With a big lens (500mm or bigger), it is possible to approach some of the birds for tight portrait photographs and also document some "fish disputes" as we walk amidst the river’s highest eagle concentration locations. Traveling from one area to another provides different eagle encounters and photogenic backgrounds each day.
Participants make arrangements with their commuter airline for pick-up and delivery to the airport today.
