Hello Everyone, I will be visiting family in San Diego (from St. Louis) for the next two weeks and would love to hear from anyone with advice on the best places to see and photograph shorebirds and waders. I would also love to see skimmers, any of the tern species, western grebes, osprey and reddish egrets and more. I will staying in Point Lomo but don’t mind driving an hour or more around the area. I am also planning on taking a whale watching tour and hope to see some pelagic birds. These are the spots that were of interest to me that I found from past eBird lists for the month of July (and a few other sources) : Chula Vista marina, Cabrillo National Monument, San Elija, Santee Lakes, South San Diego Bay Salt works, several areas around La Jolla, Bolsa Chica lagoon (diving pelicans?). There were several beaches that seemed promising but I read that raw sewage was a problem such as Tijuana Slough but I don’t know if that would be an issue. I know July isn’t the best month for a lot of birds but any suggestions or information would be much appreciated so I can concentrate my attention on the best places. I subscribed to this list last month and have really enjoyed reading all of your reports. Thanks again, Stephanie
