eBird Report – Dixon Lake Field Trip


Here is the list. A quiet day bird-wise, no wind, no rain, a few new participants, as usual a chatty group.
Highlights for most of us: the very cooperative Red-breasted sapsucker and the American white pelicans.
As usual, email me with any additions, corrections, or other.

Here is to a happy new year of birding!!!

Dixon Lake, San Diego, California, US

Protocol: Traveling
2.0 mile(s)
Comments: This was a Palomar Audubon sponsored walk. The object was not a bird count. The air was still, many fishermen on and around the lake. The coastal sage scrub/chaparral habitats were quiet. The picnic areas and riparian areas were the birdiest locations.
