Lake Hodges – Bernardo Bay Trip Report

Twenty-five birders joined the walk. The day was a lull in Santa Ann conditions, so the weather was warm, with clear sky and occasional light wind. The low vegetation was brown and very dry. Hopefully this area won’t catch fire when the wind picks up Monday. The number of birds was down from previous years. We ended the day with 44 species seen, which better than our low of 39 seen in 2016.
