Peregrine Falcon Safari             Sunday, June 21 and Sunday, July 12    $300  ($240)

 


I've enjoyed photographing these Peregrine Falcons that nest along the cliffs in southern California at a number of locations. These cliff nests allow us to photograph the parents and fledglings as they fly, hunt, and feed.  They are fascinating birds as they perform aerobatics and high G turns with ease.

We spend the morning shooting the falcons at a number of locations, the we head over to Huntington Beach after lunch to shoot songbirds there.  Beyond the normal songbirds and raptors, Huntington Beach also has a large population of African and Asian exotics that live and nest here in the summer: Orange Bishop, Nutmeg Manniken, Pin-tailed Whydah, Orange-cheeked Waxbills, and Red-whiskered Bulbul ... and probably others I haven't photographed yet.

Reservations

We meet at either my home in Tulare for those riding south to Los Angeles with me, or in Los Angeles itself if you live closer.  The weather on the coast can change so dress in layers, though we should have cool mornings and pleasant afternoons, possibly the marine layer or fog.  Light shooting gloves can make the photography much easier and more comfortable if its cool.  We have lunch in Huntington Beach after shooting the falcons.
