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 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, and possibly the Newport Beach
Backbay, and the San Joaquin Wildlife Center in Irvine. We usually finish around 3:00pm so we can
beat at least some of the traffic home.
