We (Harry, Norma, and I) arrived at the Lagoon about 9:00. Conditions were perfect, clear blue sky, mild temp., and no wind. After three hours of Warbling we had identified 26 species (not all Warblers). The most notable were four species of Warbler, Black-throated Gray, Black and White, Blackpoll and Yellow. There were also large flocks of Yellow-rumped Warbler and Townsend's Warbler.
Nearing the point of Warbler overload, we returned to the car, refreshed ourselves with coffee and homemade brownie tidbits. Not yet finished with our birding extravaganza, we checked out the pond across the road from the lagoon. Grackles were in the reeds and hanging out with the domestic geese was a snowy white Snow Goose.
To celebrate our success at finding a variety of Warblers, we drove into San Luis Obispo where we enjoyed a scrumptious lunch at the Natural Cafe . . . . . (Note: proper nutrition is necessary after a morning of intense birding)
