A large group of over 50 birders enjoyed perfect weather and a good variety of
species. The water level was the lowest we have seen in years. The group was
divided into 3 groups with Jim Beckman and Doug Nail assisting me. Jim’s group
found a rare Zone-tailed Hawk. It was first seen overhead and then pounced on a
lizard which it ate on a not-to-far away dead tree. It was a great day for Road
Runners and dancing Grebes. This was Doug & Mickey’s last bird walk with
Palomar Audubon before their move to Arizona. We wish them all the best on
their new adventure.
Between the 3 groups we had 70 species.
