California Birding in March 2008

412 March 2008

I participated in the Iowa Ornithologists' Union birding trip to San Diego, CA in March 2008.  Led by Jim Fuller, Iowa City, IA, and Bill Scheible, Cedar Rapids, IA, we birded the San Diego, Anza-Borrego, Salton Sea, and Idyllwild mountain areas. The group saw 176 bird species during the week. The following photos are generally in chronological order.
