    Winter time in South Florida and the Everglades is one of the best birding locations in the world. We will photograph birds all over South Florida. From wading birds to raptors and upland birds, if you enjoy bird photography this workshop has the best South Florida has to offer. From bird portraits, to birds in flight,  birds in the landscape, and sunset birds, this workshop will cover  all of the best places. For many years, we have had a bird workshop operating out of Naples and concentrated on the west coast of south Florida. Robert is a Miami native and will explore both coasts seeking out the best  bird locations based on the year’s availability. It’s a great chance to escape to Florida for a portion of the winter season.
