Just north of the Tijuana River in San Ysidro and to the west of Dairy Mart Road is a series of holding ponds that provide habitat for a rich diversity of birds. Black-crowned night herons perch among the reeds by the shore, a large variety of ducks and grebes dabble and dive in the water, wrens, finches, sparrows, and gnatcatchers search the brush for insects and seeds, and raptors of all sorts hunt overhead. Come explore this bounty of birdlife with us! Expect to cover about 2 miles on easy dirt paths. Capped at 12 participants.
