Our Baja Birds Ebook for Kindle is taking off!

Oly and Lotta Tidbits have been working long hours on publishing “Birds We See” for Kindle so I’m taking the day off.  I think I’ll just kick back for a bit and cruise our photos and look for some favorites to share with you.

Xantus's Hummingbird

Xantus’s Hummingbird

This Xantus’s Hummingbird was shot using one of our Cannon T2i cameras with a 100X400 ISO lens.  This was taken at 1/4000 s.s.  “They” say you can’t stop a hummer’s wings without flash and strobe but this is pretty close.  I still think flash photography may harm birds and until I’m convinced otherwise, I’m not using added light.

White-faced Ibis

White-faced Ibis

I’ve always enjoyed this pic of 2 White-faced Ibises.  They were flying over the Lagoon in La Ribera.  We have some of our photographs mounted on canvas to look like paintings.  Maybe this one?

White Winged Dove

White Winged Dove

White-winged Doves are fantastic subjects to photograph.  They seem to know how beautiful they are.  I’m not so sure about striking a pose on top of a cactus.

Snowy Egret

Snowy Egret

This Snowy Egret might be another candidate for the wall.  I just don’t know.

San Lucan Robin

San Lucan Robin

Maybe not the prettiest bird around, this San Lucan Robin is 1 of only 2 I’ve ever seen.  Also shot near the La Ribera lagoon.  Reported to be a subspecies of the American Robin and a Baja Endemic.

Red Tailed Hawk

Red Tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawks are common in Baja.  They love to feed on those Spiny-tailed Iguanas you see sunning on top of a cardon cactus.  They come in different “morphs” but almost always show a dark belly-band.

Great Egret

Great Egret

And the last shot of the day.  A Great Egret.  Larger than a Snowy Egret, no yellow “slippers” and this bird has yellow bill.  Happy Birding!

    Can you guys recommend a bird guide? I would like to have a guide take me around for a day and see the endemics. I will have no transportation so I will be stuck in my resort for 3 days unless I can get a guide.
