Some San Diego birds

(Sorry. I will repair this soon.)

I recently spent a few days in San Diego, California, and had a chance to do a little birding. In marshes and on beaches just a few hundred yards from the U.S./Mexico border I found some birds only occasionally seen in Oregon, such as the Marbled Godwits above. Others, such as the Terns and the Towhee, would occur in Oregon only as vagrants. The Great Blue Heron, of course, can be found almost anywhere there is open water.
