Field Trip Results: Bolsa Chica & Huntington Central Park

Dear Friends,

On Saturday October 19, twenty birders met up at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and we then traveled 5 miles to Huntington Central Park for a picnic lunch and some more birding.  Both of these locations are in Huntington Beach, Orange County. The weather was perfect — best ever for this field trip! We found 59 bird species total for both spots.  The Ruddy Turnstones and the Reddish Egret at Bolsa Chica were nice sightings, along with the unusual pair of Egyptian Geese at Huntington Central Park.
