Loons And Grebes


Brian, Natalie, Toby and I, having laughingly dubbed ourselves The Wolf Pack, walked 26 miles today, spurred on by the promise of lunch at McDonald’s, Subway, and Del Taco (simultaneously) at Cajon Pass tomorrow.

We’re camped near the scenic Silverwood Lake tonight, east of L.A., which gives me a chance to add some waterbirds to my trip list. So far I’ve seen about 100 species, the most unusual probably a Black Swift over the chaparral near Mexico, but am missing waterbirds in general. A Clark’s Grebe and Common Loon were nice addition just now around sunset.

    Oh good. We were all hoping that you were seeing a good collection of birds. This lake is refreshing even from this viewpoint. Hope the area is also productive.
