Song Bird Blinds
Our professional photo blinds have been designed with photographers and their needs in mind. Each is equipped with various tools and accessories to help our visiting photographers obtain the best possible images.
The interior of each permanent, below-ground blind has solid floors with rubber cushioned floor covering to deaden sound and prevent mishaps when things get dropped. Along the back wall you will find additional tools, some hooks for hanging camera bags, binoculars, other gear, etc., and a tub filled with extra camouflage curtain material, clothes pins, and other accessories.
Near each of the blinds with water holes, we have constructed a tools & accessories wall as well as a wooden box that holds seat cushions and seed trays. The water level is maintained by an automatic float valve system, but you can raise the level slightly by using the nearby water hose. Large tripod feeders attract birds and other wildlife year-round by spreading bird food daily on the tray below them.
"With the best raptor blinds in the Valley, I plan on being at Laguna Seca Ranch for many years to come."
