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. It is just a great day of bird photography. This
safari is limited to 6 photographers.
This safari is a bird extravaganza! We meet at 7:30am at
the Pt. Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro for the adult peregrine falcons (the 405, to
west on the 110, the 110 turns into Gaffey, Gaffey dead-ends at the Lighthouse).
I will e-mail you a map so you know exactly where to go. We also shoot
Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and the Huntington City Library-Park Complex, and possibly the Newport Beach
Backbay, and the San Joaquin Wildlife Center in Irvine. We usually finish around
2-2:30pm so we can
beat at least some of the traffic home.
