San José del Cabo and at Sea

Mar 22, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird

The dawn light spilled across the towering rocks at Land’s End as the captain carefully maneuvered the ship to provide close-up views of the iconic arch. After tying up at the marina in San José del Cabo, we traveled a short distance by bus for an opportunity to shop and explore the town center and/or visit a wetland habitat to watch birds.

Gretchen Pederson


Gretchen became intrigued by plants, animals, and the out-of-doors at an early age while growing up in the San Francisco Bay area. Tolerant and encouraging parents permitted almost any pet imaginable, which provided excellent opportunities for her to observe animal behavior. Later, at the University of California, Davis, she focused her studies on zoology before completing a Master of Science degree in wildlife biology at Humboldt State University. As a graduate student, through a U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service grant, she researched the feeding ecology of mallards and northern pintails, a project that combined her interests in ornithology, botany, and invertebrate zoology - all lifelong passions that she still pursues today.
