Join local birder and photographer Scott Carpenter as he discusses finding and enjoying the bird life at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. With the goal of empowering you with enough information to go out and observe and photograph birds on your own, Scott will share the many insights he has gathered during visits to the public lands of southeast Oregon over the past 13 years.
Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is one of the top birding destinations in the Great Basin and is considered by many to be the crown jewel of the National Wildlife Refuge system. Tucked in the remote and rugged southeast corner of Oregon, Malheur and surrounding lands provide habitat for many species of birds. As a result, it is well known to Oregon birders as a place to observe and photograph wildlife.
Scott Carpenter is a self-taught bird photographer based in Portland, Oregon. He became obsessed with birds as a kindergartner in the 1970s. After decades of fast-paced birding and listing, Scott began using photography as a way to better understand the subjects of his fascination. He now spends as much time as possible capturing images showing the behavior and beauty of birds in the wild. You can see more of Scott’s work online at scottcarpenterphotography.com.
