La Jolla: A dearth of derelict avian detritus

La Jolla: A dearth of derelict avian detritus
By – 11:39 am
First of all: Thanks to the many people who pointed out my solecism yesterday.I typed “dearth,” but I didn’t notice that my grade-school-level spellchecker changed it to “death.”But speaking of death, I got a note from Nancy Richardson today that yesterday she had seen quite a number of wrecked seabirds deceased on the beach at La Jolla Shores. So I headed over there this morning, and walked from the Marine Room to SIO pier: the beach was swept clean, I assume by the maintenance crew, and there was not a single moribund or deceased bird of any kind, and indeed, no piles of seaweed either. I should have checked this beach yesterday afternoon.Other less-well maintained beaches might still have some wrecked birds on them: the Silver Strand; Camp Pendleton, Del Mar, Torrey Pines, TJRV, etc.Who knows what one could find….Stan Walens, San DiegoFeb 24, 2022; 11:35 am
