Private Tours

Private tours will be provided on a first come-first served basis. In order to conduct these tours during the COVID-19 pandemic, we keep our physical distance while in the field, drive to and from birding sites in separate vehicles, and we use our own optical equipment. Masks at this point are optional, but please pack them with you in case we find ourselves in tighter field environments. At present, tours have a minimum of 2, and maximum of 4, participants. These smaller group sizes help us maintain physical distance while observing birds together. For each outing, please pack sanitizer, and your own lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, insect repellant, field guides, coffee/tea, etc. See below for sample tour ideas and concepts.
