January 2020 Activity: Birds of La Jolla

Join us for our January 2019 activity with board member and outgoing president Steve Cirone, photographing the birds of La Jolla – primarily the cormorants and pelicans.

Since these are fairly big birds and we will be able to be fairly close to them too, you do not need a very long “birder” lens to make good photos of them. A 100-400mm type lens is probably ideal, but a 70-300mm or even 70-200mm will work great too (with a little cropping perhaps). Steve can give you more tips on how to make compelling images of the birds, on location.

Since there are wooden and metal railings to rest your arms with the camera on, a tripod isn’t absolutely necessary either (especially if you have a stabilized lens) so you can keep your rig light and still get great photos.


  • Date & Time: Saturday, January 18th, 2019, 7-10 AM
  • Meeting Point: Cave Store,
  • Parking: free along the street (be early, area gets busy)

See you there!
