Hooded Merganser Los Penasquitos Lagoon

11:04 am

Kathy Estey and I while doing the monthly Torrey Pines Reserve bird survey had a male and female Hooded Merganser and a vocalizing Ridgeway’s Rail in the pond just north of the Sorrento Valley Rd. Pump Station #65 in the Los Penasquitos Lagoon.  There are lots of reeds where the mergansers can hide, so they might be difficult to re-find.  We also had three Red-breasted Mergansers in the Lagoon that were seen from Carmel Valley Road.
