Cruising the rich coastal waters of beautiful Alaska, Maine, Maritime Canada and wild Labrador, we spot many pelagic seabirds, migratory birds and we have phenoninal opportunities for wildlife photography. Besides the specialized cruises listed in our schedule, all our excursions offer opportunities for bird watching, and we are always on the lookout for raptors, coastal seabirds, whales, bears and other wildlife. Karen invites you to come aboard and join in along side her in photographing birds and other wildlife!

Here are just a few of the birding photographs taken by Karen while cruising aboard Wanderbird. Enjoy...

They are much bigger 'in person': a smaller female loon.

<-- (Storm petrels are attracted to the running lights of ships & cannot take off from land - so they must be gently placed back in the sea or tossed back into the air. We helped by proposing protocol for operating with only the necessary navigation lights while in sensitive seabird nesting areas at a shipping forum.)
