Trip Report – Tijuana Slough NWR, Jul 7, 2018

Hello, all.  Below is yesterday’s bird tally from Tijuana Slough, the ocean side of Seacoast Drive, and the end of 13th Street looking north into the bay.  Despite the dire weather predictions, the ocean breeze kept the heat very tolerable for the 14 attendees.

 And it was certainly a tern-filled day.
