San Diego Bird Festival--North County trip


My second trip of the San Diego Bird Festival was the North County tour with my sister-in-law Peg. This was the highlight of the trip for me--an Allen's Hummingbird (lifer!). Terrible picture, but the best I could do at the time. The orangy color was quite striking. This was at Todd Buddy Park in north San Diego County. We also saw red crossbills there, another life bird.

From Todd Buddy, we went to Guajome Park. A nice park with a big lake. I think they told us this was the only natural lake in San Diego County. We saw a lot of birds there, but I just have decent pictures of a few:

Ross's Goose and Snow Goose-I haven't seen either one.-I guess I should chase down a sighting one of these days.

Hi, I've been directed to you through Pa-Birder. Such lovely shots and a great variety. Always nice to see what's living in other areas. Love the Sap-Sucker! Great work! I am adding you as a link to my blog, hope you don't mind.
