Birding and Digiscope Photography
In mid-May, thousands of migratory birds return to the Northwoods. There are many wonderful places to view and photograph birds, and Powell Marsh near Manitowish Waters is one of the best locations in the area. What is Digiscoping? Digiscoping is a relatively new wildlife photography technique that utilizes the power of a spotting scope combined with a digital camera to take beautiful close up images of wildlife. Join a local expert bird biologist and digiscope photographer who will demonstrate the technique, provide a variety of optics for participants to use during class. Capture stunning images of our returning birds. With this technique you can observe and photography wildlife from a distance without disturbing them. Bring binoculars, camera, a notebook, protective gear for rain or sun, and bug repellent of your choice. Check with the instructor prior about the camera you plan to bring to the class and also to discuss weather conditions and a possible alternate location if necessary.
