Additional green space near stakeouts

As Doyle Park and now Robb Field suggest, there’s certainly something to be said of extra eyes and repeated visits to known rarities, but I also wonder how many neglected parks near these also contain one or more rarities. For those going to Coronado today for the Ruddy Ground Dove, consider stopping by the trees near the Coronado Library and the lawn at Spreckels Park or the ballfields and shoreline and trees of Tidelands Park (there are often pipits here and a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in past winters). Or the pines along Margarita Ave, or any of the other lushly vegetated streets in Coronado. If you go to Robb Field and the San Diego River, consider checking the ball fields and the weedy ditch at the north end of Bill Cleator Park or the trees and native plant garden at Collier Park in OB or the large field at Dusty Rhodes park directly south of Robb Field.

The eBird app now contains an explore tab and you can see what hotspots near you have and haven’t been visited in the last week. Consider checking one or more near your home, office, or stakeout.

There’s more to find!
