Birdwalking At Lake Murray

Went on a guided birdwalk this morning at Lake Murray in San Diego. Sorry, no pictures but here's the list of birds seen today.

Lots of hummingbirds, 3 varieties:

Black Chin
Annas
Costa's

Red-tail hawk --- sitting on a telephone wire with half a dozen small birds on the wire above.
Turkey Vulture --- circling on a thermal.

Mourning Doves
House Finch
Lesser Goldfinches
Black Phoebe
Song Sparrows
Red-Winged Blackbirds --- family groups with the colorful males, the drab females, and several juveniles.
Cassin's Kingbirds ---- another family group perched at the very top of a tree. Raucus, kind of plain but with a yellow belly

Forester Terns

Mallards
American Coot --- black w/ white stripe down forehead, and the strangest looking, green, leaflike feet. I'm thinking, a genetic experiment gone wrong.
Domestic Geese
