  1. I've  been birding so many years and I always kept my lists in the back index of my field guides. So many years and so many lost field guides later, I now have lots of my sightings on ebird. But I haven't done any historical yet, and many birds I can't remember for sure if I've seen or not. Guess I just have to go see them again.

  2. Too bad you're not coming to San Diego. I avoid L.A. like the plague. I recognize all the spots JimBob mentioned, and they should be enough to keep you busy. When you're driving, check around the overpasses for White-throated Swifts.  Brush up on the differences between female Costa's,  Anna's,  Black-chinned, and Allen's Hummingbirds.  You might find a feeder with all those species. Like mine. Brush up on the Terns as well, with five species likely, six or seven possible. This time of year gulls will be limited to Ring-billed,  Western, and Heerman's, so no issues there. When is your trip? Next time come to San Diego and we'll knock off any you don't get this trip. Good luck, and let us know how you do.

    Those signs are a good idea.  They're great for the survival of the Killdeer eggs but they're vital to keep people from being harmed by the Canadas.  A defensive Canada Goose is not to be taken lightly; people have had finger, hand, and even arm bones broken when struck by wing blows.

    Lol, I've recanted my story of being attacked by a defensive goose on here before. Jodi, I would venture a guess that your Killdeer was trying to draw you away from the nest by acting like it had a broken wing, not attacking.
