Lindo Lake Field Trip Report

Under gray clouds and occasional light sprinkles, 15 birders were treated to a San Diego rarity.  We were able to find two Swamp Sparrows in the same location (NW corner of dry lake) that was reported Friday.  The bird was in a flock of Lincoln Sparrows, so everyone was able to see the differences between these similar birds.  We also saw a “rare” Greater White-fronted Goose, which has become a regular at Lindo Lake.  Also saw the Cinnamon Teal again that has been adopted into a flock of Mallards.
