Whether you are an avid birdwatcher working on a life list, a photographer looking for that single portfolio image, or anyone looking for a breath of fresh air, we invite you to visit Santa Margarita. For the birdwatchers and photographers we offer several comfortable blinds that are maintained at feeding sites. Tours are led by nature photographer Chris Collis who photographs from the ranch year-round. Blind locations and feed sights are maintained to maximize the opportunities of each season based on migrations and nesting periods. Photo tours can also include mid-day discussion/seminars covering technique, equipment, post-processing, and other topics that may be of interest.
For those who prefer a more touring approach, the ranch’s outfitted Swiss Army vehicles offer good opportunities for birds as well as other wildlife and mammals. These blinds and vehicles also allow for large groups if necessary. Packages can be arranged for either overnight or day trips. Visit our website.
