I finally have a chance to add new images from 2015 to these workshop galleries. It's been a fun year, and with the fall weather, I have a little more time indoors to get caught up on a few things like this. I saw and was able to photograph some incredible birds this year, the ones that stand out the most was the Long-eared Owl that spent a fair amount of time in Stanwood the Black Skimmers from San Diego last winter.
Here's the link to the Gallery for the Winter Birds of the Skagit & Samish Flats, a great place for raptor photography in the winter months. Bald Eagles, Red-tailed and Rough-legged Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Short-eared and sometimes Long-eared Owls, thousands of Snow Geese and a lot of other possbilities.
San Diego County has one of the highest possbile species list for birders and bird photographers. In the winter months, breeding plumage Brown Pelicans, Double Crested and Brandt's Cormorants are spectacular. But, there are a lot of ohter birds we photograph there, like Little Blue Herons.
SE Arizona in the spring has fantastic birds and in early May, the Sonoran Desert birds are unique and fun to photograph.
Enjoy the images! Thanks as Always Tim
