Yesterday, Saturday April 2, forty birders walked the San Pasqual Valley Agricultural Trail. It was a warm morning, but a cool breeze helped to make the hike very enjoyable.
We found 55 bird species. By far the most prevalent bird species were the Cedar Waxwings. Several large flocks were seen perched in the trees and flying about. A Gray Flycatcher was seen by several birders, and the very vocal Cactus Wren was calling loudly and was easily seen by all of us. The Black-chinned Hummingbird and the Barn Owl were observed at the San Diego Archeological Center where we had gathered for our picnic lunch.
Here’s our list:
