Details 100% success rate in locating singing Flammy’s

The mountains just outside Salt Lake City provide some of the closest and easiest to access nesting sites for Flammulated Owl in the western United States. This common breeder is a mountain west specialty and highly desirable species for many birders from around the world.

Aside from these birds we may also encounter Common Poorwills, other owls, Ruffed Grouse, and a variety of songbirds.

What an amazing experience! We brought two of our kids out on a Flammulated Owl tour with Tim and it was amazing.
Niki J. “Flammulated Owling”, 2017
Himalayan Snowcock and Cassia Crossbill! Another trip with Tim, another success! These were the "big two" for this trip and Tim delivered in spades.
Paul K. “Most Wanted”, 2018
It is great to see a guide who gets excited about seeing the birds and at the same time cares about their welfare!

Tim is a fantastic guide so friendly and kind. He's funny too. I felt very comfortable on his tour which was sold out.
