Marbled Godwit - San Diego, California

February 28, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The hardest part in bird photography is to convince your subject that you are not a threat. While on the beach, it is quite easy to achieve. Stay low, do not make sudden movements and patiently wait for birds come to you. Using this simple technique, I was able to get this photograph of a Marbled Godwit, in winter plumage, walking straight towards my camera:

I had a great time photographing godwits, and other shorebirds, on the beaches of San Diego, California last year. Fun memories and lots more photographs to share :)
