Focus On Feathers

Focus on Feathers

Anchorage has a wonderful mix of migratory and resident birds, providing year-round opportunities for the bird photography enthusiast. That is why we created Focus on Feathers – Anchorage’s only tour dedicated to birding. For this year-round bird photo tour, we are selecting the best locations where you can find birds in any season where you visit. You will be transported to various locations in Anchorage, where your guide will provide naturalist information, guide you to prime locations, and provide photographic tips on how to photograph birds if needed. Focus on Feathers is photographic fun for the dedicated bird photographer who wants to capture songbirds, corvids, raptors, shorebirds, and more in the diverse habitat present in the Anchorage area. Departure times are based on the time of year when the birds are most active. Throughout this bird photo tour, your Alaska Photo Treks guide will offer you creative and technical support. If you are traveling to Alaska to photograph birds, this is a great tour to start your Alaska birding trip! The price is $275 for a solo tour or $175 per person in a group size of 2-5. Group size is limited out of a desire to not disturb birds in some sensitive habitat areas.

This is a moderate activity that involves varying levels of walking on mostly even terrain, sometimes in wet or boggy areas. Carrying your camera gear over this distance adds to the physical activity. Weather conditions may range from rain, snow, wind, and sun, and temperatures from 0°F [-18 °C] to 70°F [21°C]. This Anchorage photo tour departs in all weather (barring a weather advisory). Some of the best photo ops happen during rain, snow or fog, and birds can be active in all sorts of weather (except typically very windy conditions).
