Lake Hodges This Evening (1st post here!)


I tramped the trails around Lake Hodges at sunset. At the 'high' side of the shoreline (now beyond the view from the I-15) were 35 American White Pelicans, lot's of dabblers (Mallards, Cinnamon & GW Teal, Northern Pintails), Mud Hens, Stilts, Snowy & Great Egrets. I think I picked out a scaup (lesser?). A couple of groups of about 50 White-Faced Ibis, settled in while I was there and as I was beginning my march out, a dense flock of about 100 Cattle Egret flew down from the direction of San Pasqual and settled on the sticks about 500-600 yards from the upper reaches of the lake shore and near center of the channel.

Just in case anyone is interested in these things ;-)
