Highlights of Sept. 13 Bolsa Chica Monthly Survey

Terry Hill

Highlights of the Sept. 13, 2019, monthly survey at Bolsa Chica this morning included SIX Yellow-crowned Night-Herons, 346 Red-necked Phalaropes, 4 Reddish Egrets, and 4 Ospreys.  There were 2 YCNH in the Pocket Pond, 3 by the bridge across the channel, and 1 the bush along PCH where herons and egrets are sometimes found.  The RNPH were continuing to be seen in the Bolsa Chica cell on the right past the channel bridge as you head away from the Pocket Pond.  Otherwise, it was pretty quiet today.
