If you have ever wondered about the Salton Sea then you might start here. Located in Southern California, just north of the Mexico border, the Salton Sea is in transition. Once, abundant birds visited its shorelines on their migratory routes via the Pacific Flyway. Birders and photographers from around the world would come to witness the spectacle and marvel at the many piscivorous birds, shore birds and waterfowl. Today, things are changing due to environmental and political issues.
Winter is the best time to plan a visit. The weather is pleasant, days are short and wildlife can be found high and low. Just don't delay! The Salton Sea still affords the savvy photographer outstanding images and conservation stories.
