San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary — Field Trip Results

Hi Everyone,

On Saturday February 20, twelve birders walked around the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine. The weather was perfect and we found 52 bird species.
We had great looks at a Rufous Hummingbird, and this is always a good location for Tree Swallows. The swallows were numerous in flight as well as giving us a chance to see up-close, several birds perched in a tree.

Here’s our list:

Green-winged Teal
