Los Penasquitos Lagoon

This morning (9/8/18) Kathy Estey and I did a segment of our monthly Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve bird survey.  We had four Yellow-crowned Night-Herons on the lagoon shoreline just east of the railroad bridge off of Carmel Valley Road.  There were three juveniles and one adult.  Hopefully they have nested somewhere north of Carmel Valley Road.   When last seen they flew to the north.  Also, the previously reported Surf Scoter was swimming in the lagoon just west of the railroad bridge.
