Tijuana River Valley Field Trip Results

On Saturday morning August 17, twenty-nine birders checked out the Tijuana River Valley including the areas around Dairy Mart Pond, the TJRV Park Ranger’s Headquarters, and the Bird & Butterfly Garden. The weather started out overcast but warmed up later in the morning. It was a fun walk and everybody had a good time. We found 58 bird species. Lots of Song Sparrows, Swallows, Mourning Doves, and Cassin’s Kingbirds. Probably the best bird of the day was a nice Ash-throated Flycatcher.
