San Joaquin Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary Field Trip Report

Hi Friends,

On Saturday February 24, fifteen birders walked around the San Joaquin Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine CA. The weather was perfect, and we found 76 different bird species. We birded almost 4 hours.

There were lots of Northern Shovelers, American Coots, Ruddy Ducks, Black-necked Stilts, and Western Grebes. The best birds we found were the Yellow-crowned Night Heron and the Green Heron.

Take a look at Steve Ellis’s eBird checklist:

Many thanks go out to field trip leader, Jennifer Falconer, our eBird compiler, Steve Ellis, and to our wonderful photographer, Isabelle Davignon.
