What our clients say
We’ve been on several birding trips, both local and international, with Mike and highly recommend him as a guide. Mike does a great job not only because he has a sharp eye, but also because his hearing and memory of bird songs and calls is outstanding. Mike is always prepared and knowledgeable about the location, habitat, and wildlife. His enthusiasm is great and his concern for his clients is even greater. I have never seen anyone do a better job of making sure everyone on the trip sees the birds. Most of us have experienced the frustration of just not being able to see a particular bird, usually one that everyone else sees. Mike will help you with that–he either gets it in the scope or he provides a clear description of the bird’s location, doing everything humanly possible to be sure birders at all levels get to see the bird. No matter what happens, Mike maintains unflappable good humor. We have been pleased with the extensive background material Mike provides, enhancing our enjoyment of the trip. Birding with Mike is fun AND rewarding. We very much want to go on more trips with him.
Antarctica, the vast frozen wastes of a deep ice continent with forbidding temperatures and freezing winds! It is in the surrounding ice pack waters, welling up with life from the bottom of the ocean, where the profusion of Antarctic wildlife occurs. These rich, coastal, southern waters hold penguins and quantities of seabirds like skuas, albatrosses, shearwaters, cormorants, and petrels. Huge marine mammals like whales, dolphins and seals lurk here, searching for krill and fish – and sometimes the penguins that call this place home. Both savage and majestic, the continent of Antarctica has drawn many an intrepid explorer to this amazing wildlife spectacle of huge penguin colonies, cetacean highlights and rutting sea lions, surely not a place to be missed for any serious world birder or general traveler.Click Here to Read More
