Posts Tagged ‘Snowy plover’

After a hearty breakfast at The Station House in Pt. Reyes Station, we headed to Abbott’s Lagoon for a hike. By the end of the day John had counted more than 40 species of birds – mostly unphotographable –  but here are a few images from the day.  My lens of the day — the Nikkor 70-300mm zoom — lightweight for hiking, but fast and sharp for birds.  Although it wasn’t the most productive of photographic days, I was rewarded with a few good opportunities.
