    Manitoba 2020

    Earlier this month I traveled to Manitoba in search of my first Canada lynx. Only three days on the ground, and only one of those (the coldest at -39C/-38F) was productive... but I found a cat! In total, we saw five lynx that day, but none of them posed for good photos. Got lucky with some nice...

    Canada Goose Courtship

    I had a day tour in BC last week, which was highlighted by some nice bird activity. Something new for me was witnessing Canada goose courtship. The geese take turns dipping their heads in the water and splashing around, to show each other they're ready to mate. There was a lot of this going...

    Grizzly Bear (Play) Fight

    On the eve on my next visit to BC's Great Bear Rainforest, I wrote a piece looking back on the highlight of last year's trip: the battle between two grizzly bears that occurred right in front of our boat. Though it wasn't a fight to the death, it was pretty physical, with a lot of grabbing...

    PNW Wildlife from January

    I led a three day private tour here in the Pacific Northwest a couple weeks ago. We had excellent weather (which, at this time of year means cold and, more importantly, clear). Activity in some of the usual hot spots was down, which gave us an opportunity spend more time photographing...

    Last month I led my final two tours of the year. These took place in British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest, a beautiful area that's home to a surprising variety of wildlife. I was up there for a couple weeks, living on a boat during our tours, and we were fortunate to have some nice...

    Canada Goose

    I was sitting in my car at Basket Slough National Wildlife Refuge near Dallas, OR when this goose came up to see what I was doing.
  9. Coastal Wolf

    Coastal Wolf

    This is the alpha female of a gray wolf pack I sought out in early October up on Vancouver Island. Though they're pretty elusive, this coastal wolf pack was seen frequently during the summer, so I went up for a few days to try my luck. I was fortunate to see them briefly our very first day...

    I watched and followed this guy for about half an hour and every once in a while he would look over his shoulder to check on me. In that time he took a poop and scratch his back on a tree.
