Keeping it local…

August 04

Kept it local this week by checking out Piute Ponds (on Edwards AFB) and Lancaster Sewage Ponds in the Antelope Valley on Saturday. Sunday I birded Talbert Marsh and Bolsa Chica in Orange County. Main target birds were: Semipalmated Sandpiper, Baird’s Sandpiper, Common Tern, Gull-billed Tern and any other early fall migrant surprises. I didn’t find any of them…. Here are some highlight photos I took though:

Next weekend I’ll be heading to the San Jacinto Mountains, San Jacinto Wildlife Area, Mystic Lake and Big Morongo Valley Wildlife Preserve.
