eBird Report – Lindo Lake , Nov 16, 2019

Good morning, all. Below is the eBird report of our trek through Lindo Lake last Saturday.

Note that I’ve described the Yellow-crowned night heron that I saw shortly after we began our walk. To my knowledge, this is the first Yellow-crown reported from Lindo Lake. It proves, however, that this originally eastern bird is expanding its San Diego territory.

Have an excellent week.

Black-crowned Night-Heron
Yellow-crowned Night-Heron 1 Distinctly different from the very plentiful adult and immature Black-crowned night herons in the area. More erect posture than the Black-crowns, and seemed more elongated than the squatty Black-crowns. Neck, chest. and belly were gray, much unlike the bright white front of the adult Black-crowneds and the streaky fronts of the juvenile Night-crowns. The face and crown pattern was not as distinct as some Yellow-crowns, but was evident. Very evident, however, was the bright plume feather extending back from the crown. (No photos available.)
