Some Spring Birds at Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary, San Diego






Every Spring I try to visit Silverwood wildlife Sanctuary run by San Diego Audubon.  This is a very species reserve of over 750 acres near Lakeside.  There is an observation area close to the entrance where it is easy to see many coastal chaparral  and riparian woodland species. On this visit in May I caught some of the  birds on camera including Black-headed Grosbeaks, California and Spotted Towhees, Scrub Jays and Hooded-orioles.

  1. Thanks for the lovely reminders of my hometown. I moved away from Lakeside, and really appreciate your bird and flowers (Wildcat Canyon) photos. Makes me a bit homesick.

    It’s always a joy to see photos of birds that we don’t have where I live in Northern Virginia, like the beautiful Scrub Jay.
