Wile hiking out to Tomales Point in Point Reyes last week, there were a few birds that would sit for a portrait...this was one of my favorite, I had never seen a California Quail, this is a male. He was talking back and forth with his lady friend, but she was hiding more in the bushes...so no pics of her. 2x on the 70-200 GM and the a9.

This past Saturday was the annual "Photography Day" at a local raptor recovery center (Blackland Prairie Raptor Center). They hold it to raise money and it a neat opportunity to get up close to some beautiful raptors. I'm just getting started looking at our pics from the morning.

Wonderful eagle shots. How did you get above the nest to get a shot like that?

Spend today in Walyunga NP. Lucky there have been some ducks in the river as it was otherwise very quiet.
