West Coast Florida Birding
Arrival Point: Fort Myers (RSW) airport.
This tour will start with your arrival in Ft. Myers on April 11th any time around noon. Our first shoot will be later that afternoon. I visited a new rookery this year where everyone was able to use his or her shorter glass and we didn’t have to get wet! We will revisit that rookery as well as a few others. I have removed the Venice rookery off this tour, as the action and setting have gotten progressively worse. This is a shorter 6 & 1/2 day tour and will conclude with your flight out in the afternoon (after 5pm) on the 18th. This tour is limited to 4 and the cost will be $3,395. This years group shot approximately 600 gigs worth of images and my record group was over a TB! This is definitely the fastest way to build up your bird photography portfolio. The price includes lodging (based on double occupancy) and transportation after your arrival in Ft. Myers. Check out my gallery to see what you can expect to photograph on this trip.
I recommend a lens that can cover the 200mm-400mm range to participate on the instructional tour and you also need to wear shoes and clothes that can get wet during certain portions of this tour. Some possible hotel chains we use are a LaQuinta, Country Inn and Suites, Hampton Inn, or a Best Western.
