Barnegat Light & Chesapeake Bay Waterfowl with David Stimac

February 25 - March 2


The mid-Atlantic coast hosts millions of waterfowl every winter in several key regions. Sea ducks, Atlantic Brant and Snow Geese escape the arctic’s harsh weather on the open ocean and seek refuge on the tidal flats and salt marshes of New Jersey. Canvasbacks, Scaup and Wigeon flee the frozen prairie marshes and invade the open waters and marshes of Chesapeake Bay. During this tour we will visit these two areas that provide great access to a high diversity of waterfowl and other waterbirds.

he tour includes in-the-field tips and guidance, as well as my instruction on post processing images during bad weather or evenings. Participants should have a good working knowledge of their cameras and have a basic understanding of exposure. This trip is about spending as much time in the field as possible during the best times for photography. 400mm & longer lenses are recommended. Five days at these locations will help ensure that we have optimum conditions for photography. If time allows, we may also visit Island Beach State Park, Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. However, the priority will be on the Barnegat Light and Cambridge areas. We will meet on Day 1 of the the tour (Sunday) at 6:30 p.m. for orientation and a discussion on the daily schedule and carpooling options. The tour concludes on Friday evening.
