The Birding Voyage

This week I went birding at the Ramona Grasslands in Ramona, CA. I spent about 3 hours walking the trails and driving looking for as many bird species as possible. I saw a rare bird (for the area), which I was really excited about. There were a lot of Red-tailed Hawks and Kestrels. It was a beautiful day and place to go bird-watching!

This week I went birding at the San Elijo Lagoon in Encinitas, California. I saw 31 bird species and walked 2.5 miles in about 2 hours. I really enjoyed my time there even though it was a little chilly. I loved the two hummingbird shots I got. I was surprised how close they let me get! Thanks for watching.
