Birding/Photo Project #5 & San Diego Workshop Images

Bird PhotographyTim Boyer

These images were created on the banks of the San Diego River, and at Cabrillo National Monument as part of the San Diego Workshop.   Having never photographed Wrentits, Little Blue Herons or California Towhees, this was a fun day.  California Towhee was a new bird for my life list as well.   The tally is now 33 species photographed and  467 to go.
