Dairy Mart Pond/Tijuana River Valley Field Trip
August 17 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
(Thomas Guide: 1350-D5 / GPS: 32.554229,-117.062579)
Rating: Easy to Moderate (Mostly flat dirt trails and some paved walkways)
Please Note: Summer birding can be very warm. So be sure to bring sunscreen and sufficient water on walks.
From North County, take the I-15 south and merge with the I-5 south to the Dairy Mart Road Exit. Turn right on Dairy Mart Rd. (south). Continue a very short distance and meet at the dirt parking lot on your right just before the concrete bridge and next to the large “TJRV County Park” sign with the pond on the west side of Dairy Mart Road. We will also drive a short distance to the TJRV Park Headquarters (public restroom and bird feeders) and then visit the nearby Bird & Butterfly Garden where there is a chance of seeing the elusive Black-throated Magpie Jay.
No restrooms at Dairy Mart Pond and ones at Bird & Butterfly are usually closed.
