Reddish Egret: Bolsa Chica Wetlands

Mike took a business trip to Southern California and got to stop at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach. The highlight was a reddish egret fishing.

Hi Mike
I love your pictures from CA, you are so fortunate to be able to go there on business and yet have time for the photos. I was on your link to Flickr and was wondering what type of bird cam you have and where did you purchase it. I would love to have one. Thanks for the info.

Nina,
We got the Wingscapes WSCA02 BirdCam 2.0 with Flash at Amazon.

We don't really use the flash, so I might suggest the earlier model Wingscapes WSCA03 Audubon BirdCam. However, the 2.0 version also has greater resolution.

There should be a birdcam slideshow on the right side of the blog. It looks better in full screen mode.
