Birding San Diego County

(Note: click here for an on-line presentation of the Sparrows of San Diego County workshop.)

While by no means comprehensive, these pages represent a compilation of my personal records for some of my favorite birding sites around the county.  The "site" page is divided into two sections: "Easy Birder Routes" that can be done from your car, and other sites that are best birded on foot.  Each site page has a checklist of birds I've encountered at the location (including seasonal abundance), and each bird in the list has its own page (which can be accessed by clicking on the species), which in turn lists all the areas I've encountered the bird, when, and the relative abundance.  You can also go directly to the Species Page (below) and click on whatever bird interests you.  I cannot emphasize enough that these lists are NOT comprehensive, and only reflect my own (often inadequate) records!
