Birds at LA Arboretum, 20 pictures of birds

Arcadia, California, USA

Home to several varieties of birds the Los Angeles Arboretum is a wonderful place in Arcadia. The arboretum is easy to reach and makes a perfect candidate for a half-day to a day trip while visiting the area. It also provides wonderful opportunities for taking pictures of birds or simply relaxing and taking a break from busy LA. The images of different mallards, peacocks, and other exotic birds are quite enchanting.

Seeing wood duck in its own natural environment is a pleasant experience. The white lines, the red eyes, and the reddish bill give the wood duck a distinctive look. They are found in wooded areas, which is their natural habitat. Of course, there are lots of  Mallard Ducks – water birds swimming casually in the lake. One can greatly increase the collection of bird pictures here.

The most exotic birds in the area are the majestic and elegant peacocks and peahens. The peacocks with the bright green and peacock blue plumage are a visual treat and they strut around proudly in this park. The peacocks are the stars of many impressive bird photographs and happily pose as visitors capture the beauty of these exotic birds with their camera. The peacock during courtship dance completely opens up its feathers to show a dazzling view of peacock blue and iridescent green. If you are lucky to be there at the time you can take a great bird image that can make a great desktop background or wallpaper.

There are other flying beauties that are more difficult to photograph –  the charming hummingbirds at LA arboretum come down and buzz among the flower branches. One has to be patient and quick to capture a picture of the delightful hummingbird.

The area is also home to a large flock of guinea hens, flightless birds which can be seen scuttling carelessly. The sights of the guinea hens add to the experience and make one feel closer to nature. The birds add to the wonderful natural setting and encourage many to visit the arboretum again. Canada geese sitting casually on the branches and tree trunks near the lake are not as glorious as peacocks, but are quite elegant and have a very special curve of the neck. These birds are popular among all visitors to the park – children and adults. For photographers taking pictures of birds is an excellent chance to practice skills in shooting fast-moving and often unpredictable subjects.
