Photo Of The Day – Select Birds; Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve

Title: Select Birds; Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve

Location: Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, Los Angeles, California, USA, North America

Description: It’s remarkable to me that there is an area within LA city limits that has such a variety of birds. I love the big birds, or the kind with sharp talons, so this sampling leans that way.

But there are far more non-cool birds around the reserve, with a lifetime count at the basin numbering over 270. You can find out more about it here on eBird. You can also find me on eBird if you are a bird nerd.

I’m excited to be heading to Central America to teach photography in November and December of 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse.

I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries. Click here or email me for more details.
