Lake Hodges Bernardo Bay Trip Report

32 birders enjoyed a bright sunny day. The first third of the walk was very quiet and I was afraid we would not see many birds, but once we got close to the lake things picked up and ended up seeing 55 species. There were many Cassin’s Kingbirds and Yellow-rumped Warblers. Best bird of the day was a California Gnatcatcher, which I had not seen at this location previously.
