    I was the only participant. That wasn't a problem, but perhaps there should be a way to have a minimum number so there is some group dynamics. Thea was awesome. She listened and was able to craft the session to compliment my strengths while suggesting different things to challenge me.

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast.
