Crested Caracara - Tijuana River Valley, 02 Sep 2012
- Some documentary quality photographs of the adult CRESTED CARACARA that I
spotted this morning at 7:50 AM as it was flying strongly towards the main
Dairy Mart Pond, Tijuana River Valley, San Diego County. I drove after it
but could not relocate it. However it was seen again later at 10:30 AM by
other observers at the Dairy Mart Pond, perched on a snag, just off Highway
Lots of White-collared Seedeater (*torqueola *'Cinnamon-rumped Seedeater')
singing everywhere around the ponds, I heard at least four males at one
time and 'scoped a nice one in song just beneath the top of a spindly
tamarisk by the hidden "middle" pond.
Pacific Beach, San Diego.
