Similar experience with Canopy Family's Darien Camp in Panama not long ago.
We got settled in with a large (8 people total, 9 with the local guide) group of BIRDERS.
One day we see a Kingfisher 50 yards away, horrible light, suck perch...the guide sets up
the spotting scope, they all see it, they all check their boxes.
Next day another Kingfisher 10 yards away, beautiful morning light, amazing perch...the guide
and the BIRDERS have NO interest-they already had their little box checked.
Thank God, 4 days into the trip we are joined by two more PHOTOGRAPHERS from Hungay,
at that point the photogs were put into our own van and into our own dugout canoe.
My suggestion is to research hard the type of trip, the goals of the provider and if 'birding'
is the emphasis or photography.
If you want lots of little boxes ticked Canopy at Darien is great, if you are a photographer I suggest
this tour be avoided.
In Costa Rica Poof and I drove around the country on our own like we did in s.Africa, Chile, etc. and
enjoyed the freedom to work a shot as long as we wanted. This Panama experience was our first
official tour and we got two trips out of one=first and last.

p.s. in the Timbavati you must go with an expert or you'll be eaten but that's a totally different beast
than tooling around CR.

p.s.s. I know some of us photographers are also birders! Don't flame me! Just know I'll avoid a birding group
in the future like a plague ;)


This is one of the most annoying features of birders, they walk right past something a few feet away (often noisily and flushing it) but peer furious at something 1/2mile off via spotting scope.

lol I know Dave... I shoot with a body these days, and it does make it more fun but its not as easy to get all those feet under control. Of which I think is the hardest thing for people to do. Stand where you are I mean. I call it fancy feet. My wife does carry a camera but she has started to wish to stay in the heat. Need to change that. But then I don't ever really get to far from home.

IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/RQ9C​yR  (external link) red breasted yard (external link) by Geoff Anderson (external link), on Flickr

red breasted are not common in my area, but there have been a few sighting this year. I saw my first ones ever last october but failed to get good photos.

I was putting away laundry this morning, looking at my window and i saw a nuthatch on the suet, normal. Then i saw it was striped head, and tiny, then the flash of orange..OMG!!!! Ran and grabbed the camera, turned it on and it was gone......i scanned the tree and then i saw it. Fired away, completely unaware of my cameras settings through my bedroom window. Its not the best but im super happy with it, this will be so far this years best yard bird.
