      Hi, all!

      No time for a detailed trip report (I can hear some of you cheering), so here
      are the highlights: the RUFF is still hanging around the sod farms, as well

      at the Tijuana Valley Regional Park, two BREWER'S SPARROWS at San Deguito
      Lagoon along the main trail, and an immature BALD EAGLE at the same place,
      soaring overhead. Famosa Slough had a LITTLE BLUE HERON and eclipse-plumaged
