I have a fuel-efficient Pontiac Vibe that can be used for the day. Standard mileage rates apply. Let me know if you're in need of lodging and dining recommendations during your visit here. I want
to make your visit as pleasant, exciting and memorable as possible!
All of my birding tours so far (photos below) have been upon-request of the visitor. A birding tour might be just the thing for your personal time in the northwoods, or maybe as a fun & unique gift for a family or group of friends during the holidays. Any customized birding tour requested locally can take you through black spruce & tamarack bogs, to expansive cliffs & smooth shorelines of Lake Superior; and from wetlands and mixed grasslands just a short drive away, to a blend of thick woodlands throughout the nearby Superior & Chippewa National Forests.
Upcoming Birding Tours:
Currently I am creating a prairie potholes birding for Summer 2014, where we'll cover the heart of the praires in the birding hotspots and some of the most scenic and unique areas within the core of the prairies. Having spent two and a half years of my life conducting avian field work in the prarie potholes of North Dakota, I have been treated to the full spectrum of prairie-nesting birds (endemics and generalist species alike). Some of the target birds for next year's trip includes Western Grebes, Greater Prairie Chickens, krider's Red-tailed Hawks, Ferrugenous Hawks, Swainson's Hawks, prairie Merlin, Sprague's Pipits, Bobolinks, meadowlarks, Grasshopper Sparrows, Nelson's Sparrow, Le Conte's Sparrow, Baird's Sparrows, Vesper Sparrow, American White Pelican and so much more!! Let me know if you're interested. Rates, duration of the trip, timing and other details will be available in the near future.
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 33 states and 4 European countries.
