Another trip with Tim, another success! These were the "big two" for this trip and Tim delivered in spades. We had a fairly long walk to the Snowcock location and Tim kept us amused with some banter as we climbed in the dark. And it...More

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.

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
