Tim took us looking for flammulated owls on solstice eve. We saw owls really close up, and many other birds as well. We were well prepared for the hikes with water bottles, bug spray, and jackets at his suggestion. Tim is friendly and very knowledgeable.

This was my first experience with a guided bird trip and it could not have been better. Actually, it could have been better....if I had scheduled a full day with Tim and not just half a day!! Thank you, Tim, for an excellent birthday!

Not only did Tim deliver the birds, but he kept us in good spirits, even when hiking up a mountain at 3am. His birding expertise is profound, and he has extensive knowledge on a number of other topics, including insects, geology, local culture, and more....More

A 2:00 a.m. wake-up and a 3:00 a.m. start on a 10 switchback rocky trail in the dark with headlamps was the beginning of a great day of birding with Tim. We saw the birds as we hit 9700 ft and they were about 10,000...More
