Zone-tail, others, at Cuyamaca Lake
Yesterday afternoon (10/23) was a good time to be at Cuyamaca Lake. Our group (Barbara Kus, Robyn and Gary Waayers, Janet and Steve Shields, and myself) found about a dozen Canvasbacks on the Lake, a W-T Kite in the field east of the Lake, and a Bald Eagle circling overhead, but the star of the show was a Zone-tailed Hawk on a low fly-by and then circling back to make sure we got a good pic of the underside of its tail. I think Robyn is going to post the photo on eBird.
Earlier in the day we had a Cackling Goose in the picnic area at the J St. marsh.
