The SJWA (San Jacinto Wildlife area) has some great opportunities for Birders. I took these on a casual walk/drive through the area. Nice place.

Thanks!

The Sig 150-500 is a bit soft at 500mm, these were from 300-400 or so...

Pretty shots in nice settings. Looks like a fruitful day. I love the simplicity of the small bird shot and it posed for the available light just perfectly for you.

Last year we were camping in Menifee and went out Hwy 79 and there wasn't a lot of water in that area, looks pretty green now, that rain must of helped, or the creek is running now. Great shots, I will have to stop back in there next year and take a look. thanks for sharing. Bob

Thanks!

Every fall they fill all the ponds for the migratory waterfowl and open it up for hunting on Sundays(?). As spring progresses toward summer the water evaporates off until it is filled up again. I live about 15 minutes from there and try to get there as much as possible. I have taken some great (lucky) shots of all types of birds from Golden Eagles and Osprey to blackbirds and waterfowl. I even saw a mountain lion there once. It is quite a nice place.
