The other day, 3 friends and I set off early in the morning to photograph birds at the Salton Sea. We arrived at the State Park just before sunrise so as to take advantage of golden hour.
While it was a beautiful morning I was a little disappointed in the number of birds we found. Last year I went down about the same time (maybe a week or two earlier) and my recollection was that there were more birds last year. This year there was a fair number of pelicans but I didn’t see any cormorants nor egrets. Last year they were both plentiful. It may just be timing and in a week or two the situation might be entirely different.
Anyway we had a fun morning capturing the birds and even a butterfly.
