Shorebirds of Tomales Bay: Scrub Jay (video)

This is the very first video I tried making on my new SLR body. You can tell. I don’t have much of a handle on the technique, but the subject matter is fun.

I spend a lot of my time kayaking and photographing on Tomales Bay. Among the myriad waterfowl, shorebirds, pelicans, ospreys, and cormorants, we have a few birds that like to pretend that they too are shorebirds. Among them are the Song Sparrow, Hermit Thrush, Black Phoebe, and the energetic Scrub Jay (there are others, but I won’t bore you with too long of a list.) This video is of the Scrub Jay.

  2. Your welcome. I will post more as I create them. There is also one video of a Black Turnstone, and tomorrow or the next day, I will post a Surfbird video that I shot the same day.
