OC Coastal CBC, Sunday Dec 28...Got Owls?
- Hi Birders!
This is just a reminder that the Orange County Coastal CBC is coming
up next Sunday, Dec. 28. Just in time to use those shiny new
binoculars that Santa left under your tree!
In recent years we have had a hard time finding owls for the Coastal
count. So if you know of a reliable owl in your neighborhood or local
park (within the count circle)...please let me know and we can send
someone after it. Or, you can find it yourself on Sunday the 28th and
The count circle is roughly from Huntington Harbor, south to Corona
del Mar, and east to the former Tustin Marine Air Station and UC
Irvine. The circle includes Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa
Mesa, Fountain Valley and Santa Ana. If you need more detailed
information, write to me offline.
- I've seen a Great-horned Owl foraging in the annual grass at Bolsa Chica on the mesa path a few times in the early evening this season.
