We are meeting in the South Parking Lot off Highway 1, south of Rabbit Island on the map (bottom,

center). We will meet there at 6:30 am. Dress warmly… it will be a bit on the cold side.


6:30 am (Sunrise is at 6:56 am)

We will meet at the South Parking Lot off PCH (just south of Rabbit Island). We will set up our gear,

have a short class on bird photography and continue to the Footbridge.

8:30 am
Once we are finished at the Footbridge, we will head towards Rabbit Island and the Nesting Area

10:00 am
We return to the Footbridge by the parking lot. This will conclude our photoshoot.

You are more than welcome to “hang out” and continue photographing the birds on your own.

Presented by Robert R. Fletcher

I started photographing professionally in January 1970. I learned photography the old-fashioned way… through mentoring with established photographers. Bill Stockwell, Rocky Gunn, Monte Zucker, David Peters, and many others.

In the late 1990’s I started using the early Kodak/Canon digital hybrid cameras and was immediately hooked on digital photography. Around that time I also started working for Canon USA as a Freelancer. That relationship continues to this day I have always mentored beginning photographers and taught them the art and business of photography so they could also make a living from something that they loved to do. My heart is in the future but my desire to train others is in the present. It is a joy to share with others the love that I have for the art of photography.
