Highlights of January 10 Bolsa Chica Monthly Count

Terry Hill

Our January 10 Bolsa Chica monthly count coincided with an extreme high tide this morning, resulting in not many shorebirds, but still a lot of ducks.  Highlights included 383 Brant geese, 3 Common Loons, 1 Red-throated Loon, 2 Reddish Egrets, the continuing MOUNTAIN PLOVER (on the Least Tern nesting site, but over on the left side this morning), 5 Large-billed Savannah Sparrows, and one Loggerhead Shrike.
