I arrived at noon just as the mist rolled in from the ocean
Soon the sun broke through again lighting up the Dodder plants growing over vegetation.
I moved on around the Lagoon
As I started walking through the willows a Scrub-Jay called despite having a bill full of berries!
A familiar sound in the trees – the Yellow-rumped Warblers were back!
As I neared the nature center I saw a beautiful Mockingbird
The sun was really bright by now and the fall colors all around me were beautiful
A Snowy Egret looked up and a Cormorant flew over.
As I started to walk towards my car a bird flying over the lagoon caught my eye. it was a Curlew. Four cyclists went by just as I took a photograph. For me this really illustrates what a wonderful oasis San Diego Lagoon is – in the heart of a busy coastal area.
