Bolsa Chica Birds



This morning, Sunday, I made a loop around Bolsa Chica. Of interest was a lone Black Skimmer on the mud next to the water in Wintersburg Channel about 50 yds upstream from the tide gates. The Black Tern was flying around in the pocket pond looking for food. There was an inordinate number of Gnatcatchers (specie uncertain). on the mesa north of the pocket pond. Perhaps because of a concentration of grasshoppers and mantis in that area that may be a food source.
