About this trip

  

Located in northern Alabama, Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge is comprised of a diverse set of habitats which collectively provide a winter home for thousands of waterfowl and cranes every year. The refuge, consisting of 37,000 acres, is a mosaic of wetlands, pine uplands, riparian woodlands, agricultural fields, and back water embayments, which supports Alabama’s largest wintering duck population. As if the hordes of geese, ducks and Sandhill Cranes were not enough of a spectacle, varying numbers of the federally-endangered Whooping Crane have been seen in the refuge every winter since 2006.

It turned out to be a beautiful day, not too hot, and it was a small group. We saw or heard some great birds like the Canada warbler.The guide was so knowledgeable, as well as pleasant. Thanks for a great day

Thanks so much to Kevin Burke, our guide for Southern Arizona in July. He did a fantastic job of curating a wonderful experience. His birding skills, infectious good humor, in-depth preparation and flawless execution made it a perfect trip. The birds are important, but the experience is much more than that. He has a real talent and mindset for understanding and delivering what the client wants. He put us on rare birds. We made the ABA Rare Bird Alert on 3 different days. He put me on 43 life birds bringing my total for 2022 to 446 and counting. I’ll see him again on a future trip.

Ventures birding is the real deal. We scheduled a half-day local trip near Asheville while friends were visiting from New York. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. His ability to identify nearly every bird by even a brief snippet of song made spotting them really quick. Besides that, he’s a nice guy, easy to talk to, and fun to spend time with. Ventures Birding has our enthusiastic recommendations, and we look forward to more time with them!
