Photo Of The Day – Birds Of Pepperdine University

Title: Birds Of Pepperdine University

Location: Pepperdine University Ponds, Malibu, California, USA, North America

Description: Near the middle of the day, when they say the birding and photography sucks, I decided to see what could be seen at the Pepperdine Ponds. Probably boring for someone more experienced than I in the birding world, I found it an enjoyable walk to spot 13 species, some brand new to me. And some turtles.

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.
