An Anna's Hummingbird in Cherry Blossoms | Southern California Bird Safari

Bird Photography is about Action and Interaction: So Cal Has It All

Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

I've never had a bad day of photography shooting these great locations in southern California.  We will have opportunities to photograph shore and wading birds - like dowitchers, sandpipers, terns, rails, egrets, and willets; and many duck species - like wigeons, teal, scooters, mergansers, ruddy ducks; and raptors - like osprey, falcons, and Cooper's hawks; and songbirds - like pin-tailed wayduhs, orange bishops, and many others.  Traveling from one spot to another, we will be able to concentrate on the areas with the most active birds. 

We meet at 7:30am at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve on Highway 1.  I will e-mail you a map so you know exactly where to go.  We stop for lunch and usually finish around 2-2:30pm so we can beat at least some of the traffic home. 

The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, Venmo, or credit card, and the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full payment is due.  Check the main safari page for other info.  Link 
I've spent my 40-year wildlife photography career shooting in the American West.  The first 24 years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of California.  I lead safaris  to the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife activity periods.

Difficulty Level : Easy

This safari is a bird extravaganza!  We start with the songbirds and hummers in Huntington Beach, and finish with the terns, rails, and wading birds at Bolsa Chica.
