Birds of Bolsa Chica 2009 / 2010 Vol. #1

Newest entries at the bottom of this gallery. Scroll down.

This is a new gallery. I will be randomizing the photos from time to time to add interest.

This gallery is reserved for some of my best bird photos. A few will not be up to my high standards. Those photos will have "Place holder" after the birds name. Once I take a better photo the place holder shot will be taken down.

All photos drastically downsized and optimized for online viewing ONLY. Printing of these photos strictly prohibited. Feel free to share these photos with friends and family but PLEASE include the following line and a link back to the photo.
