Field Trip - Southwick Zoo


The event was held on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM.

We will Visit Southwick's Zoo Saturday May 4, 2019. Southwick’s Zoo has a vast collection of animals and birds in 200 acres of wooded habitat, with a park like feel. My personal favorites are the tigers, lions and Cheetahs. The zoo is in a rural convenient area and parking is easy, close and free. There is a fee to enter the zoo.  Tripods are allowed if they don’t interfere with other zoo visitors. 

    We’ll spend the morning and early afternoon photographing big cats, birds, monkeys, giraffes, zebras, deer, etc.  We can also check the schedule for presentations, feedings, keeper talks, and animal interaction opportunities.  (You won’t be able to touch the animals, except in the petting zoo). There is also a great wooded section where you can feed and photograph roaming  deer (another one of my favorites)! You can get great images with a reachable regular telephoto lens in most cases.  Even more assuredly, we’ll have a fun time in the fresh air and learning something about nature and wildlife.  


In the afternoon, we’ll regroup at Sharon Colacino’s home nearby for lunch, birding and socializing. We will order pizzas and / or pot luck. We can photograph a variety of local birds and hopefully Hummingbirds.
