Popped out of my sickbed on Sunday to lead a small walk down at my favourite LA birding spot Ballona Wetlands (pronounced Bi-yona) on the coast near LAX Airport.
Unfortunately, I didn't last long because I felt rotten and my throat felt as though someone had drop-kicked me there. Despite all that, I still managed to connect with a few species that I have not seen in years.
Heermann's Gull - 1st winter
Black-necked (or Eared) Grebe
