Shadow Cliffs Regional Park

I have 12 photos from Shadow Cliffs Regional Park today. Shadow Cliffs is located in Pleasanton, CA and is one of the parks in the East Bay Park region. These photos were taken last year during December (sorry for the delay). I hope you enjoy viewing them!

Close up photo of yellow flower. I'm not sure what type of flower this is. 

 Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea)
For some reason, the color did not turn out well on this photo. I took 2 photos, not that good.

That is either a seagull or a goose. Not too sure.

There are lots of seagulls flying.

Turkey Vulture (Cathartes aura)
These birds sure are big!

Photography Tip: As I mentioned in some of my previous posts, the best way to take a photo of a bird in flight is to set your camera on Shutter Priority (Tv) and use a fast shutter speed. If you have a Canon EOS camera, also set the focus mode to AL SERVO (may be under different names on other brands of cameras). This will insure your camera will constantly focus on the moving subject.

Help me with the name. Thank you. :)

Ducky butt. XD

Mallard Duck (Anas platyrhynchos)

My guess this is a Long-billed Dowitcher (Limnodromus scolopaceus)
