On Saturday, April 15, eighteen birders gathered at the Wilderness
Gardens Preserve, near Pala, and took part in a wonderful field trip.
The County Preserve was celebrating their 50th anniversary with
speakers, booths, and programs. After our walk, several of our birders
attended some of their festivities.
As usual at this location, our walk started out on the cool side, but
warmed-up as the morning progressed.
We found 59 different bird species. Lots of White-throated Swifts and
Acorn Woodpeckers. The best bird of the day has to be the Great Horned Owl.
