Common Loon Photography Trips

Come explore the world of the Rangeley Region’s most visible and heard avian residents.

Two hour, half day and full day trips with wildlife and nature photographer Nick Leadley, editor of the recently released publication Gavia: Tales From Loon Country will take you into the heart of Common Loon territory. With a large number of lakes and ponds supporting a substantial loon population, the western mountains of Maine offer great chances to see and photograph loons in their natural surroundings.

Common Loon photography trips are regularly offered on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday for either two hours, four hours and full day trips during the summer months. With advance notice I can schedule a workshop of any length on days other than those listed above. Group size is limited to three people. All care is taken to minimize the impact on the birds.

Ground transportation is included in all trips. Transportation on the water is by either canoe or kayak (single or tandem) depending on the wishes of the client and conditions. During two and four hour workshops we will stay closer to the Rangeley area on smaller lakes and ponds that are home to Common Loons. On full day trips we can travel to lakes and ponds further from Rangeley. All itineraries are subject to weather and wind conditions.

A percentage of the proceeds of each loon photography workshop are donated to Common Loon conservation and research efforts throughout New England.



Full day: $295.00 per person.
Half day: $125.00 per person.
Two hours: $65 per person.

Includes boats, life vests, and ground transportation. Lunch is included in full day trips. Snacks are provided on half day trips.
