On Saturday morning January 6, twenty-seven birders walked around Dixon Lake in Escondido. The weather was perfect for birding and we found 61 different bird species. Lots of American Coots, California Quail, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and Scaly-breasted Munia. At the start of our walk, we were all excited to see a couple of flocks and really close California Quail. The best bird of the day was the Red-naped Sapsucker that was found at the end of the field trip.
Many thanks to Steve Ellis for keeping track of the birds, and also our wonderful photographers. See the link to Steve’s eBird checklist below.
Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
