I did a one night tour for Flammulated Owl with Tim of Pitta tours and it was Amazing! I have looked for this Owl over the course of several years on my own and with other guides to no avail. Tim was extremely professional, personable, kind, and funny. His Owling experience is extraordinary. I had a wonderful night hearing eleven Flammulated’s calling and we got to see two separate individuals in different locations with jaw dropping views! It was an Amazing experience. If Flammulated Owl is on your most wanted list I would book a tour with Tim immediately.

My husband and I recently had a wonderful day birding with Tim Avery around Salt Lake City. He took care of absolutely everything (meals, transportation, bird finding) so that all we had to do was enjoy the experience. We are not super knowledgeable, just enthusiastic, and Tim easily adapted to our level of expertise without making us feel stupid. He's extremely nice and easy to be with. We hope to enjoy more birding in the future with Pitta Nature Tours.

Spent a day doing Marathon birding with Pitta Nature Tours in the Salt Lake area with Mike Hearell as guide. Tour was partially connected to SLC Bird Festival as the traditional marathon day during the festival booked up in minutes..maybe seconds. Owner Tim Avery went out of his way to arrange an additional event to accomodate those of us who missed out on the original tour. Mike was a great guide taking us all over the northern SLC region seeing large numbers of birds and some pretty incredible vistas. Ended with awesome looks at the Flammulated Owl as it flew around us on a moon lit night. Absolutely worth your time and money.

Tim took my friends and me on a private warbler quest in Utah. We topped out at 130 bird species all together plus a ton of warblers, while he did all the driving, provided meals, and generally was a master of logistics.
