San Diego River Estuary Trip Report

Day started with thick fog which quickly burned off.  After about 40 minutes of birding the fog returned.  The Burrowing Owl was not found at the west end at it usual location, but was located briefly at the east end.  It got spooked by some runners and never reappeared.  There were 24 birders on the walk and we saw 45 species.  I need a photo of the Hooded Merganser to attach to the ebird report.  Also any photos you wish to share are always appreciated.
