Surfbird Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: A species I've only seen when taking work trips to the San Francisco area, but they definitely aren't shy, and I've gotten quite a few photos of Surfbirds. I like this photo because it depicts their habitat...a well-named species, hanging out near the surf line. This is from December 2011 just north of San Francisco.
