Take pictures of Golden eagle

*About photo hides:
The Golden eagle season lasts from October to late March.
The photography take place close to the White Mountains nature reserve with mire, old forest and mountains in the background.
The main photo hide, with heater and toilet, is for max 4 photographers. It has 8 photo holes in two directions for eagles in the landscape and close-ups; in this area it is also possible to see for example White tailed sea eagle, Ravens, sometimes Goshawk, Woodpeckers, Eurasian jay, smaller birds like Bullfinch and tits, Red fox etc.
We also have a new photo hide in the same area for 4 photographers with 8 photo holes for eagles in one direction, 4 in normal hight and 4 low for lying on the floor (useful with an anglefinder) and 4 for smaller birds in an other direction, also heater and toilet. This hide is also for eagles in the landscape, smaller birds and foxes etc against a background of mountains and forest. Our photo hides are not equipped with mirror glass, the eagles tolerate the lenses sticking out and cautious movements by the principle "move slowly as the minute-hand at your watch".
As we photograph wild birds and animals the chances are good, but there are no guarantees. This is a sparsely populated part of Sweden and the wild animals are not very used to people, so caution is needed to see them.  According to statistics you have good chances to have pictures of Golden eagle after three days in the hide.

To be sure of snow: middle of December – end of March.
*About lenses and other equipment:
For the eagle hides: as we shoot in two different directions, one close-up for smaller birds and also chance for Golden eagle close-ups I recommend lens 200 mm – 400 mm. For flight shots etc, eagle in landscape: 300 mm – 600 mm.
