Birds in Yosemite Village - Yosemite National Park (Part 8)

Yosemite National Park is a national park located in California that stretches eastern portions of Tuolumne, Mariposa and Madera counties in the central eastern portion of California and covers around 761,268 acres or 3,080.74 km² of land. Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, deep valleys, grand meadows, giant sequoias, giant wilderness area, and much more. I, personally, love Yosemite National Park. I think it is very beautiful and is a great place for photographs. I also happen to live in the SF Bay Area which isn't very far from it! I try to make at least 1 trip almost every year to the park. I visited the park several month ago and I am here to show you some of the photos I took in the park as well as some photos I took on the way into the park from the SF Bay Area. These photos will be divided over several blog posts. I hope you enjoy the photos! Also, I have route information recorded using a Canon GP-E2 GPS Receiver. If you are planning a similar trip to Yosemite National Park and would like to see the route I took, feel free to email me at the email address I provided on my "About the Photographer" page for a copy. I can provide you the route information in Google Earth KMZ, Canon NMEA, and GPX formats.

Now let's introduce you to the photos for today. The photos for today was from the 2nd day of my trip. The photos are of birds in Yosemite Village. I shot these photos after having a burger lunch at the burger restaurant in the village. The burgers were delicious! It was just a bit expensive, but considering how it is a tourist destination in the middle of a forest, it is expected. Anyways, after I ate, I thought, why not get some bird photos! There were many birds flying around the burger restaurant. There are signs saying not to feed wildlife, but I am sure people still do it. The birds were very tamed so it was a perfect opportunity for some close up photos. All these photos were shot with my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III.
