Spring is in the air and last Sunday the kids and I hit Ponto Beach in Encinitas for some boogie boarding since it was more like summer was in the air at 82 degrees. The ocean was definitely swimable without a wetsuit.
With most of California’s wetlands gone and developed, birding enthusiasts should know those wetlands remain here in the San Diego County region serve as the last refuge for many of the Western Flyway’s migrating birds on the way in or back from farther south.
That makes San Diego one of the premier destinations for birders from all over the world. As many as 480 bird species have been identified in San Diego County. In addition to this hot spot for birding, the Colorado River and the Salton Sea to the east also are prime bird-watching areas and within a day trip of San Diego.
