We will first drive to Deming, WA to look for bald eagles and spend a couple of hours taking photos of them. 

Next, we'll go on to the Skagit Flats to look for short eared owls.

It will most likely be quite chilly outside.

Please take a look at the following equipment list:

  • Camera
  • Longest lens they own (or can rent one from Glazers or online at BorrowLenses.com)
