After enduring the coldest February on record I think everybody is ready extra early for spring and summer this year. Now that our days are starting to get longer and we have some warm sunny days it won’t be long for all the new growth to start popping through the ground. As we approach this time of year we always get into the habit of spring cleaning. We do this as if it’s a new start to the year or season. Putting away all the winter stuff and getting all our lawn and garden equipment ready is only part of it. For people like us it’s more about getting our cameras outside and taking some pictures again. I have noticed this winter in particular, people have been staying inside due to the very cold temperatures. That’s quite alright as some people are just not built for the winter season and others like myself tend to melt in the summer so it’s a trade off. So let’s meet somewhere in the center like May 16th?
On May 16th I will be holding a raptor in flight workshop at the Canadian Raptor conservancy. In hopes for warmer days we will be outside standing in a natural environment with a lush green backdrop. During this day we will be photographing raptors in flight such as the Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Harris Hawk, Swainson’s Hawk, Aplomado Falcon, Broad-winged Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl. Some static birds may include the Great Grey Owl, Snowy Owl, Peregrine Falcon and the Eurasion Eagle Owl.
Our sessions for the AM class will start at 8:30 with a brief instruction for our morning shoot. During the time we are in the field I will be walking around making sure you are all getting the photographs desired. After wearing out a battery and filling up a memory card or two our am session will end at 12 noon. The PM class will begin at 12:30 and as well will have a brief instruction on the afternoon shoot. Help will be provided for afternoon attendees as well to get the desired shots. Our Pm session will end at 4pm before the light falls behind the trees.
During the day we will be offering a mix of raptors throughout the AM and PM. Some birds will be repeated like the Golden and Bald Eagles and a few others but the order of birds will not be determined until the AM of the 16th. The cost for the raptors in flight is 149 plus HST for a half day, people will have the choice to pick a AM class or a PM class. Or the option is there to do both as a full day for 249 plus HST
So don’t miss out as this workshop is going to fill up fast!
