Part of the photography workshop in the San Diego area took us to Santee Lakes on two different occasions. Santee Lakes in California have a tremendous variety of waterfowl that stick around throughout the winter so it’s a great place to take a camera and concentrate on the various kinds of birds you find there.
Birds we saw include Wood Ducks, Northern Pintail, American Coot, American Wigeon, Mallards, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, and a variety of small song birds.
Here is a sampling of what I shot that day. For the complete gallery, click here.
