One of the biggest and best bird photography hots spots is in the deep south of Texas. During the northerly migration, hundreds of thousands of birds make their way back from the south to their breeding grounds in the north. South Texas is where they first make landfall after crossing the Gulf of Mexico. The birds come in waves to find freshwater, food, and photographers! My Texas Bird Photography Workshop is timed to coincide with the migration, and you’ll be amazed at the number and variety of birds.

We start the trip on famed South Padre Island. It’s so birdy here, it is the home of the World Birding Center, and they have constructed unique locations to welcome the birds back to the US. They also provide much-needed food and water for the birds, and that helps us get gorgeous images. We will photograph from boardwalks that meander through an estuary. You never know what will appear on the walk, but you’ll be happy with the experience.

We leave the beautiful blue water and Padre Island behind and head to the desert outside of Edinburg. Our location is the famed Laguna Seca Ranch and its fantastic bird photography blinds. We will photograph local specialties like Green Jay, Caracara, Olive Sparrow, and any migrants that are remaining in the area. The blinds are comfortable and offer us eye-level photography of our fine feathered friends.

I have photographed many places around the world, and the experience in South Texas is quite unique. I have never photographed birds anyplace that offers the variety and easy access to so many birds as South Texas.

This was my third workshop with Jeff and I’m going to Africa with him in January. His workshops are very well organized as he pays attention to small details like the setup in my photo. I’m an experienced photographer and I learn something new and valuable at every workshop in addition to getting great photos.

Learned a lot!

Had a great experience and learned a lot over four days with Jeff in South Texas. Jeff could not have been more helpful or accommodating while in the field as well as the photo review sessions. He has taken my photography to a new level. I am now looking forward to my next workshop with him.
