Trip Report: Tijuana Slough and Tijuana River Mouth

Below is our report for the Palomar Audubon Tijuana Slough Walk on July 8. Despite this being the slowest time of year in our parts for birding, there were a surprising number of shorebirds seen. Highlights of our walk were the adult and juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Herons and the Reddish Egret.

Thanks to all for attending.
