White-tailed Ptarmigan
Photo By Dan Walters

  • Title: White-tailed Ptarmigan
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Guanella Pass
  • Nearest Town: Georgetown
  • Brief Directions: I-70 to Georgetown, then follow Guanella Pass road to the top. In winter, they usually close the road a couple of miles from the top. Extra snowshoeing/hiking required.
  • Notes: I usually snowshoe until I find their tracks, then follow the tracks until I find the birds. I find it best to lie in the snow until the birds get used to you. Plus you get more intimate portraits.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Winter is a great time to photograph these birds. Their winter plumage, combined with some fresh snow, makes for some clean images.
  • Gear: Canon 1D Mark2 300mm f/4L

    Beautiful rock seascape Duane! Oregon has some remarkable areas along the coast. Have you ever visited/photographed the Bandon Beach Rocks? A favorite place there, when I get the chance!
