This month at the Buena Vista Lagoon Monthly Bird Count there was an obvious uptick in the amount of birds that we saw compared with August. Unfortunately, I was sick for the September count so I don’t know how it compared to the month before… but the increased bird action was exciting.
There seemed to be less waterfowl and predatory birds but lots more songbirds and hummers flying around. I’m not sure what the final tally was, but I bet even though we saw more overall birds, that we saw fewer species than the previous month. I’m sure that the count will change in general now that one of the vacant lots that we used to use for viewing is now a construction zone.
The above photos are some highlights of the trip. Hope you enjoy.
