Whelan Lake Sanctuary

GPS: 33.2427, -117.3354  

Whelan Lake is a private bird sanctuary located in Oceanside featuring a large freshwater lake surrounded by freshwater marsh, riparian woodland, grassland, and oak woodland habitats. We expect to see resident Wood Ducks, wintering species such as Shoveler and Gadwall, along with Merlin, White-crowned Sparrows, Loggerhead Shrikes, and Red-shouldered Hawks. Bring water and sunscreen. Hard rain cancels, call to confirm. Porta-potty is available. Capped at 25 participants.
Directions: Exit I-5 to Highway 76 East. Continue about 5 miles, then go left (north) on Douglas Drive. Continue less than 2 miles; turn left (west) on North River Rd. Continue about ½ mile to a cul-de-sac with a gate on your left. Drive through the gate on a dirt road, which leads to a small residence and an old barn. We will meet in the small parking area next to the small residence.
