Birding Outing: Robb Field/San Diego River Mud Flats with Palomar Audubon
Please Note: Summer birding can be very warm. So be sure to bring sunscreen and sufficient water on walks.
We will visit two locations along the San Diego River Floodway to look for early migrant and returning shorebirds, often still in breeding plumage, and post-breeding dispersal Elegant Terns.
From North County, take Hwy. 163S to I-8W and drive toward Ocean Beach. Make a slight left at Sunset Cliffs Blvd. and then stay in the right lane. Turn right onto W. Point Loma Blvd. and then right at Bacon St. Drive straight ahead to the Robb Field parking area near the tennis courts at the east end.
Bring a scope if you have one.
We will also visit the nearby San Diego River Flood Control Channel (Mission Bay Pkwy & Old Sea World Drive) or Famosa Slough (West Point Loma Blvd & Famosa Blvd.)
Restrooms at Robb Field by Tennis Courts, but not at the other locations.
