San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary Field Trip Results

Hi Friends,

On Saturday January 16, sixteen birders enjoyed a beautiful fun day at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine.

We found 61 bird species. Lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers, ducks, and both Gnatcatchers. Good looks at the Ospreys and Hooded Mergansers. The recent arrival rare Palm Warbler got a lot of attention from our group as well as many other local birders.

Many thanks to local Orange County birder Jennifer Falconer, who was our trip leader. Gerry Baade and Linda stayed on after our walk and added White-faced Ibis, Ring-billed Gull, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and Hermit Thrush to our list.
