Sept 29, 2018 Hodges

Field Trip Report 9/29/18:

It started out as a cool, foggy, comfortable morning at beautiful Lake Hodges, with sun breaking through around 10:30. It was a rewarding day of birding, with 30 enthusiastic birders who identified 53 species of birds! A very nice morning, indeed! It’s always interesting to compare our results with previous field trips, so as a side note, I will mention that on the Lake Hodges field trip last year, 31 birders found 52 species of birds.
