Trip Report: La Jolla Cove

Below is our eBird tally of the birds seen by 20 stalwart souls on the Palomar Audubon walk last Saturday. Perhaps the most exciting bird seen was a Black Oystercatcher, cracking open a mussel for breakfast. (Some might vote for the Peregrine Falcon flying in from the ocean with a Red-necked Phalarope in his talons.)

Special thanks to our special guide and mentor, Stan Walens, for sharing his extraordinary knowledge of the birds of the Cove.
