The highlights from various locations in the TRV and the San Diego River today, 17 August included:
REDDISH EGRET continuing at J St.
A male NORTHERN RED BISHOP (ooh ahh) was at the mostly overgrown “stick pond” at Dairy Mart, where perhaps more notable was an adult LEAST TERN circling.
The sod farm actually had green irrigated sod but it was totally devoid of any birds.
An adult COMMON TERN was at the Robb Field stretch of the San Diego River, and up stream just east of the 2nd bridge (Old Sea World Drive), were three LESSER YELLOWLEGS.
