About Me

Sandia Park, New Mexico, United States
I have been birding for 41 years. My favorite clients are those who are interested in birds, watching them and even learning about their behavior, not just checking birds off a life list. I enjoy people and want to have fun while birding. As a bird watcher since 1972, I have acquired a broad knowledge of birds, birdsong, habitat and behavior. One of the things I enjoy most about taking people out birding is teaching my clients how to identify birds and how to recall their song. We were in Asheville, NC for 5 years, and Bisbee, AZ 10 years before that. Currently we are house hunting in New Mexico.

Upcoming: Post Thanksgiving Bird Tour November 29, 2013

$75 per person-5 hour trip-Easy

Join professional bird guide Wezil Walraven on Friday Nov. 29, 2013 for a casual half day of birding for birders and non birders alike. There will be easy walking, and birding from the tour van, and great opportunities for photographers. Our region is wintering grounds to thousands of Sandhill Cranes from as far away as Russia, along with several races of Red tailed Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, Owls in addition to many overwintering sparrows and grassland birds. 

We will depart shortly after a delicious gourmet breakfast provided by the innkeepers of Casa de San Pedro. We will head to El Frida, AZ to the White Water Draw Wildlife Area only one hour’s drive from the inn. Along the way we will stop to view soaring hawks, and songbirds that we encounter. At White Water Draw we will encounter up to 10000+ Sandhill Cranes returning to their daytime grounds from feeding in the nearby cornfields.In addition to the cranes we will experience a dozen species of Sparrows, with instructions how to identify them. We will watch for Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, which are frequently seen there and Great horned Owls are a common resident there as well. Expect surprises as no two days at WWD are alike! Lunch will be included, and served picnic style at the picnic tables. After lunch we will bird along the way returning to the inn completing our 5 hour tour.
