Matthew Studebaker - Northern Ohio Songbirds

January 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Pretty excited since I signed up for my second Matthew Studebaker Photo Tour
called Northern Ohio Songbirds. This year its May 12 thru the 15th.
 

While hundreds upon hundreds of people will be elbow to elbow at Magee Marsh
looking for warblers, I'll be photographing quite a few more different species in
Cuyahoga Valley, surrounded only by a few photographers. The whole experience
is so much more enjoyable when you don't have an elbow in your ear :)
 

I think I wrote about this last year, but it deserves to be repeated, Matt knows
his birds and their songs. It still amazes me how he can be driving down a road
at 35 mph and pick out the sound of a Cerulean Warbler, an Indigo Bunting, etc.
All I hear is car noise :)
 

My favorite part is the last day. When I was on the tour in 2014, Matt made
arrangements with a property owner to allow us to setup blinds and feeders to
attract Orioles. And its just not Orioles. The surprise for me were the Hummingbirds
that also appeared. I think I could've spent all four days in that area without any
problem.
 

Matthew also added a new tour called Ohio Grasslands on July 6-9. I wanted to
go to that one also, but with it being so close to July 4th, I doubt I'd get that
time off.
