NATURALLY AVIAN
Birding Tours and Nature Photography

GUIDING RATES

  • My rate is $175 per day for a single person, and $100 per additional person.

I have a Pontiac Vibe that can be used for the day. Standard mileage rates apply. No additional fee is applied if we use your vehicle. 

All of my birding tours are upon request. When the tours date(s) are established, I will gladly recommend lodging and dining options to fit your needs. What kind of birds are you looking to see? Are there select lifers that you have in mind? Were you hoping to have more of a photography-based tour?  Would you like to know more about the nature and unique wildlife of the area? My goal is to make each and every Naturally Avian birding tour a special and memorable experience for all participants!

In 2014 I began leading birding tours for Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT). This link below contains the VENT tours I will be leading in the future.

In 2014 I also began leading pelagic birding trips for Texas Pelagics. These exciting pelagic birding trips depart from South Padre Island, TX. Check out the link to learn more!

If you're interested in a winter birding tour in northern Minnesota, be sure to check out the article I wrote for the American Birding Association. Starting on page 36, you'll find an array of tips and advice on how to stay warm while birding, even during the coldest of days!

I offer birding tours throughout Texas and Minnesota.

Some bird species in this gallery are very rare, where others may seem quite common. I really enjoy making each and every birding trip that I lead, a customized adventure that hits the spot for the participants. Naturally Avian has led birding ventures for peple coming from 40 states and 4 European countries.
