Explore the beautiful, wild prairies in North Dakota to witness the abundance of songbirds and waterfowl that live in this very special area of the country. The Prairie Pothole region is a vast beautiful area with a high number of birds. While diversity isn’t huge, the sheer numbers of species is overwhelming. We will be focusing on the many breeding sparrows of the region, including several elusive species such as Baird’s Sparrow, LeConte’s Sparrow, and Nelson’s Sparrow. Other songbirds such as Chestnut-collared Longspur, Western Meadowlark, and Western Kingbird are plentiful and good photo ops are sure to follow. Shorebirds such as Marbled Godwit, Upland Sandpiper and Wilson’s Phalarope will give us good opportunities at close-up shots. Most of North American’s waterfowl nest in the region along with Western, Red-necked, Horned, Pied-billed and Eared Grebes will get us out into the marshes for intimate photo ops. Black Terns, American Bittern, Yellow-headed Blackbirds and a variety of other marsh specialties will be a focus as well. We will also venture to the west to pick up birds like Lazuli Bunting and Black-billed Magpie. It is sure to be a week of amazing shooting with so many excellent photo opportunities!
