Great and Snowy Egrets galore, Malibu (Grace Murayama 7-14-17)
The migrating shorebirds are starting to return in their bright colors. Some of our Snowy Plover flock, beach residents for the 10 non-breeding months of the year, are back. Arrive early and get a free gift (as opposed to gifts that you have to pay for.)
Some of the great birds we’ve had in July are: Gadwall, Pied-billed and Eared Grebe, Brown Pelican, Great Blue Heron, Red-shouldered Hawk, Snowy Plover, Spotted Sandpiper, Willet, Whimbrel, Ruddy Turnstone, Western Sandpiper, Heermann’s & Western Gulls, Least, Caspian, Royal & Elegant Terns, Black Skimmer, Anna’s & Allen’s Hummingbirds, Belted Kingfisher, Rough-winged, Barn and Cliff Swallows, Oak Titmouse, American Robin, Northern Mockingbird, Common Yellowthroat, California Towhee, Savannah & Song Sparrow, Red-winged Blackbird, Hooded Oriole, House Finch, American Goldfinch.
Western Sandpipers in breeding plumage will probably be there (Grace Murayama 7-7-17)
