Spotted Sandpiper and White-tailed Kite at Mission Viejo Lake (photos)
- At the base of Vista Del Lago and Marguerite Parkway is partial access to Mission Viejo Lake. Though some areas are gated or require membership it offers good birding on private and publicly accessible areas.
Today's unusual inclusions were the Spotted Sandpiper (1 lonesome amongst numerous American Coots - about 50 and the first I've ever seen in 2 years).
