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
