Famosa Slough and Killdeer Land
Famosa Slough is a great place to see a variety of birds and even a few uncommon or rare birds. It's right there in the middle of Point Loma, so you don't have to drive far to see them. First, a bunch of dowitchers flying away. There's always dowitchers fly...

Ducky, Ducki and a Little Bird
First, a rainbow from Lake Murray this morning: This first picture is of a duck named after a friend's duck as well as a TV character. His name is Ming Ming (It means "little bright one") and he has been going missing quite often. However, he was seen today...

Rainbows at Lake Murray
We've been getting a lot of welcome, but unexpected rain here in San Diego. It's been pretty nice. Today, while I was walking at Lake Murray, there were some thunderstorms. Right before the first thunderstorm hit, I took photos of this rainbow. This picture...

I was counting birds at Lake Murray when I spotted these two great egrets fighting. I think one was a juvenile and the other had a mate setting up a nest in a tree about a 1/4 mile away. They had been fighting for a couple of minutes before I started taking...

Sissy Returns and Other Birdy Happenings
Sissy, the buff duck, seems to have returned from her three-month absence in the reeds at Lake Murray. She had no ducklings this year. Her sister, Pumpkin, has not been seen or heard, yet, but she may still be in there as she often comes out after Sissy lea...

Zippy?
I don't know if anyone remembers Zippy and Skippy and their mom "Yellowcheeks" from 2012? Here's a photo of them at about 2-3 weeks old: I lost track of them when Zippy found a mate and I thought she left the lake for good. However, I recently came across a...

Spotted Sandpiper and Avocets
I haven't been taking a lot of pictures at Lake Murray, lately, but I did see this very friendly spotted sandpiper about two weeks ago. I think it's a male because he's small and slim. He was eating up flies like crazy. I also saw some visiting American avo...
