Seattle Bird Photography Tour

The greater Seattle area offers a number of locales for viewing and photographing beautiful birds. Washington state is home to 346 regularly occurring species of birds, an exceptionally high number, according to Seattle Audubon.

 

​In this half-day tour, we'll visit two of our favorite birding spots. We offer a money-back guarantee if we don't see numerous species on our tour.

  • We'll work on getting great shots of perched and birds in flight.
