Maine - Common Loon Workshop
July 8 - 12, 2021

Join us in Maine’s Rangeley Region to discover it’s most visible as well as  -audible avian resident – the Common Loon.

Along with wildlife and nature photographer, Nick Leadley, we’ll head into the heart of Common Loon territory. With a large number of lakes and ponds supporting a substantial loon population, the western mountains of Maine offer a great opportunity to see and photograph loons in their natural surroundings.

Early- to mid July is the best time to photography adult Common Loons with chicks.  We’ll explore the lakes and ponds early in the morning and/or late in the afternoon, to catch them when they’re most active. And then spend the remainder of our days discovering the beautiful scenery of this region, including waterfalls and covered bridges.  

Our day’s will be full, so bring a lot of energy and loads of memory cards!
