Tijuana Estuary Field Trip Results

Hi Friends,

On Saturday December 22, fifteen birders walked around the Tijuana Estuary National Wildlife Reserve. The weather was perfect, a crisp, clear winter day. We found 57 bird species. Probably, the best birds of the day were the Merlin, Yellow-crowned Night Herons, and the Ridgeway’s Rails. It was fun watching several Northern Harriers hunt for food.
