F06 Dancing with Grebes

 TAMRON new logo blue  With over 150 different bird species that either live at Lake Hodges permanently, or just pass through, the lake is a nature photographers and bird watcher's dream. Especially lovely are the Western and Clark’s Grebes, and Eared Grebes. The Grebes breed on the lake in the winter months and courting (rushing) happens between November and early March. We hope to see a few “shows” or two.An easy walk (up to 3 miles) to the rushing area will also give us the opportunity to spot a few dozen other bird species. The day will concentrate on photography but is open to birders also.
Krisztina Scheeff is a wildlife and nature photographer who has spent months studying the Grebes on Lake Hodges. Her interest in photographing wildlife is to be able to share with others who may not otherwise get the opportunity. Ryan Rubino began an ongoing interest in birds and other wildlife at the age of 10 which led to the rearing of birds in aviculture for many years and the study of local birds. Since 2012 he has been developing his skills in wildlife photography as a way to stay connected to the natural world and further his knowledge and passion for wildlife.  Julie Zickefoose is a writer and artist, author of the heavily illustrated books Letters from Eden, The Bluebird Effect and Baby Birds: An Artist Looks Into the Nest.  GrebeRush 2 KSNPBirdFestivalProgram
