DeKorte Bird Report


As a little scouting trip for tomorrow's (Friday's) guided walk at DeKorte, I walked along the  Transco Trail and Marsh Discovery at lunch yesterday. Highlights were a Black-crowned Night Heron in the back of the Shorebird Pool and 11 species of duck.

Birders I talked with reported seeing Ruby-crowned Kinglets and the fairly reliable Great Blue Heron.  Did not see the Orange-crowned Warbler or American Bittern — please let us know if you do.

Full list follows.
