Mountain Plover 12/13/19

A message was sent to us that the Mountain Plover at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve is currently out in the open giving good looks behind the "Wildlife Habitat Area" sign.

For those on the fence about seeing this bird, Mountain Plover is one of the hardest species to get in Orange County because when they do occasionally show up anymore, it's typically not in public areas (generally on Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach). The fact that this bird is in a very public area and is giving such great looks to observers is NOT typical for our county.

Friday 2:00 pm the Mountain Plover was at Bolsa Chica on the tiny island (spit) straight out from where it’s been seen at boardwalk end behind fence. Scope needed.
