Birds of Northern California

Google
 

This gallery contains photographs of many species of birds commonly found in or around San Francisco Bay Area and parts of Northern California. Most of these photographs were taken at various state and county parks and bird preserves including the Rancho San Antonio County Park and Open Space Preserve, Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve, Shoreline Lake and Park, Ed Levin County Park, Arastradero Open Space Preserve, Half Moon Bay, Moss Landing and Point Lobos State Natural Reserve.

I hope that these pictures may help amateur birders with identification of sightings as well as non-birders who want to learn about these beautiful birds. If you see a bird that you cannot recognize and cannot find a match in your bird guide or in these pages, you may post a note here and I will try to help with identification based on your description. Note that pages for different species are currently not listed in taxonomic order - perhaps a future project for me to organize this site better.
