The credit cannot be applied to accommodation, transportation, meals or any other costs associated with the tours.

“I drove to Saskatoon and met Stan Shadick who arranged for me to observe lekking Sharp-tailed Grouse. Stan set up a blind for me, enabling me to take photos in the early morning hours (04:10 to 08:00, Wednesday, May 5). It was a birding thrill for the year. ” (L. C.)

That was such a great trip!  Thanks so much for the use of the blind and sharing your general knowledge and expertise. (J. L.)

“We really appreciated your tour last Wednesday; [Our young grandson] loved it!! He also told us he learned a lot.  I believe you have inspired him to continue his passion of birding.  Thanks again for the wonderful guiding!” (D.D. )
