I am fortunate enough to live within a two hour drive of Bodega Bay, California. The area is famous for birds because of Hitchcock’s masterpiece, The Birds. In real life Bodega Bay explodes with avian activity throughout the year and offers unparalleled opportunities to observe, and to photograph, birds. Over the last several years, I have made countless trips and taken tens of thousands of photographs of birds at Bodega Bay. I don't pretend to be an expert, but I do have fun with it. Over the next few months, I will be culling these photographs and adding them to this site. Visitors to Bodega Bay may be interested in the information on the time and date of pictures so over time I hope to be adding this data to the galleries. I'll also be including some technical and equipment information to guide beginners who are interested in bird photography but not sure how to get started. For now, some camera and photo information is available via the information button on the detailed view of an image. I'm more comfortable with photography than with websites so please be patient as I slowly build content. This website will focus exclusively on Bodega Bay. For a broader collection of bird photographs from Northern California, Oregon and Arizona, please take a look at my other site -- Feel free to contact me at
