Thomas Guide: 1268: A5
The San Diego River Estuary is one of the most productive and rewarding birding sites in our region. The salt marsh mudflats, sand islands, and wetlands, always changing with the fluctuating tides, provide rest spots and foraging areas for a wealth of bird species. Some summer birds may yet remain (e.g. Elegant Terns), and the winter visitors will be arriving. We will look for Osprey, herons, gulls, ducks, shorebirds, possibly even Clapper Rails. Restrooms are available at the trailhead at Robb Field.
