  1. Hello Roger, in addition to Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve what national park do you recommend for bird watching in California?
    Thanks for share all your knowledge in this site 🙂

  2. Sir,
    I am 89 and enjoy photographing birds. I report to eBird at least one time each day. My usual birding gear is a Nikon D500 with a Nikkor 200-500 lens. You may want to see my work at eBird for Indian River County, FL and my Facebook page. I hope that you will use “birding” as the subject and send me an email.
