Snow Goose Festival in Chico, California January 25-29, 2017

Field Trips

 

I (Eugene Duley) plan on spending a week at this festival and will be glad to talk with anyone that thinks they want to go. Email me at e1duley@yahoo.com or call at (661) 816-4955.

Attending one of these festivals is a great way to find out about Birding. One can get a lot of coaching on birding knowledge and learning the photographic technics necessary to capture great photos.

The Pacific Flyway ranks as one of the greatest migratory pathways in the entire world, stretching from the Bering Strait off the coast of Alaska to the steeps of Patagonia in South America. Millions of birds representing hundreds of species use this great avian highway.

The area attracts a huge wintering population of waterfowl and raptors. A local favorite among these is the majestic Snow Goose, with the estimated overall population exceeding 5 million.

In Chico and the surrounding communities, they celebrate this magnificent spectacle of nature with the Snow Goose Festival on the Pacific Flyway.

The field trips start on Wednesday, January 25th and goes through Sunday the 29th. Event contact is Kathy Trevino. Registration (530) 520-2872 or (530) 345-1865 (office)

Where can you go within a day’s drive and find a good place? The next question is how do you capture a shot that has impact?

Field Trip - Havasupai, Grand Canyon, April, 2017

Field Trips

I (Eugene) am planning on a field trip to Havasupai, Grand Canyon. It’s still in the early planning stages. (Email me at e1duley@yahoo.com or call at (661) 816-4955.) At this time the target date is the 2nd week of April. This is a real “rough it” adventure. Hike in, camp and play in the pools and waterfalls for a couple of days and hike back out. We have to buy our pass from the Indians and all proceeds go to the Indian Reservation Council. The reservations have to be made in Mid-February for the number of people attending. And campsites have to be reserved also. The Indians provide a mule team to carry all the gear in if one doesn’t want to carry it in the 10 miles to the campground.
