How many bird species can we photograph in one dayif we all work together? More than 150? That’s the goal!
Join San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory volunteers Kitty O’Neil and Bill Pelletier for the Bird Photo Big Day on Saturday, September 18th. Let’s photograph as many bird species as possible in a single day. All levels of birders and photographers are welcome. The goal is to capture photos of over 150 Bay Area bird species in one day, all as one distributed team. We can do it!
This fall’s theme is A Day In The Life. Let’s paint a great picture of a Day In The Life of a bird! On September 18th, start snapping pictures of birds: birds having family time, playtime, and siesta time. Preening to get ready for work. On the commute. Getting children fed. Even a date night!
We’ll also have a photo contest in addition to the Bird Photo Big Day count.
