I shoot the birds here often with my Nikon D300 equipped with a 70-300 MM VR Nikkor Lens. Today I spotted and shot a Kingfisher, several Snowy Egrets, Bofflehead ducks, Pintail Ducks, Long Billed Curlews and WEstern Greebs to name a few.There are at least 6 miles of trails here. Today I just went out and back for 2 1/2 miles. The photos here was just taken with my iPhone 3GS.EnjoyKen
