When I go out to Point Reyes to photograph wildlife I usually concentrate on the ranch lands and other open lands of the Seashore. One day last month I stopped at Drake’s Beach and watched some sandpipers and marbled godwits hunting for food as the waves retreated. Things were pretty quiet (few people) so I grabbed my gear and headed down there. Unfortunately for me, some people walking the beach came a little too close for most of the birds and they flew down the beach. However, a few remained. This guy came closest.
Limantour Beach is known for shorebirds. Pat Ulrich has had a lot of success there. It’s a long way from my usual areas, but I’ll have to check it out.
