Birding at Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge

Tijuana River National Estuary Visitor Center, 301 Caspian Way, Coronado, CA, 9211832.5750667,-117.1269995

The Tijuana River winds through the wetlands of the Tijuana Slough before finally reaching the Pacific Ocean. This area provides a unique breeding habitat for many birds, including Yellow-Crowned Night Herons that nest in the pine trees around the slough, Ridgway’s Rails that slip in and out of the reeds at the water’s edge, and Northern Harriers that fly low over the marsh, looking for an unwary meal. We will wander the area just south of the Visitor Center, and then head over to the South McCoy Trail to explore more of this wetland ecosystem. The trails are easy, flat dirt paths, and we will cover 2-3 miles.
Leaders: Martha Wild and Others
