Ballona Wetlands

Spent more time this morning photographing plants and such at Ballona Wetlands this morning. Was able to get permission through Dan Cooper to photograph in some of the restricted areas for the book that we’re working on. Encountered most of the usual suspects including a rather photogenic adult male Allen’s Hummingbird along with a Jerusalem Cricket posing on the dunes.

Keeping it local…

Kept it local this week by checking out Piute Ponds (on Edwards AFB) and Lancaster Sewage Ponds in the Antelope Valley on Saturday. Sunday I birded Talbert Marsh and Bolsa Chica in Orange County. Main target birds were: Semipalmated Sandpiper, Baird’s Sandpiper, Common Tern, Gull-billed Tern and any other early fall migrant surprises. I didn’t find any of them…. Here are some highlight photos I took though:
