Default South Texas Birds & Wildlife @ Santa Clara Ranch

South Texas Birds & Wildlife Photo Adventure
3 Day All Inclusive Photo Shoot at the Santa Clara Ranch - May 31st thru June 3rd, 2012

The Rio Grande Valley is becoming one of the premier hotspots for nature photographers in the country. It has been a world class destination for birds (with over 500 species in the area) for many years. The "Valley", as we locals call it, is also known for its variety in reptiles (over 150 species documented) and mammals (150+ species live here).

Santa Clara Ranch is a 300 acre wildlife sanctuary that is comprised entirely of virgin brush land. The ranch is a real gem in its diversity of wildlife because of the nature of the property, brush land that has never seen a plow blade and wildlife that will never be hunted. 5 blinds that hold up to 4-6 photographers each are strategically placed throughout the property. 2 morning sunken blinds, 2 afternoon sunken blinds and 1 afternoon elevated blind for raptors make up the permanent blinds here at the ranch. All blinds have birds feeders and all blinds have waterholes to attract birds, mammals and reptiles.

Cost of Photo Tour - $770.00 per photographer (double occupancy)

- Lodging at the new Santa Clara Ranch Guesthouse for 3 days and 3 nights.
- All meals (catered) and non-alcoholic beverages during your stay.
- Professional Photographer Guides / Instructors to help you maximize your stay.
- All applicable taxes.

We are limiting the number of participants to 6 so you can get our full attention and have unlimited exclusive access to the blinds during your stay.
