I will be offering a two part bird photography workshop in conjunction with the North River Sanctuary of the Massachusetts Audubon Society. Part one will be on Thursday, April 28 from 7-8:30PM at the North River Sanctuary in Marshfield. During part one, we will discuss the basics of bird photography including ethics, equipment, photography techniques, bird behavior and how to locate our feathered friends.
Part two will be on Saturday April 30, from 7-9AM at the Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary in Marshfield. During part two, we will practice the techniques we learned in part one. Daniel Webster features a variety of birds and habitats and it is truly a beautiful landscape. With a little patience and a lot of practice, we will be able to make some beautiful avian images.
The two part workshop is geared towards beginner and intermediate bird photographers, but all are welcome! The fee for the workshop will be $15 for Audubon members and $20 for non members.

This snowy owl glided across a dune to escape a more dominant snowy coming to claim its territory. The two owls had been fighting over a narrow strip of land for most of the winter. The owl in this image had been keeping an eye to the north where its adversary sat on a high perch. After a half hour, I was quite surprised when the owl flew in my general direction. As soon as the owl passed me, it was followed by the dominant owl. The two chased each other over the ocean and out of sight. Seeing this owl so close was an amazing way to start my day! As always, I urge you to be respectful of snowy owls when photographing them.
