Bird Watching in Bolsa Chica

This Past Sunday we went up to meet with John and Kirsten and took the kids out to the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve to do a little bird watching.
I drive pass here everyday on my way home from work and always love looking at the different birds that Migrate over throughout the seasons. The kids were really excited to get out there and look around.

Kelsey and Parker right away went to look at the premises.
We checked out the wildlife calendar to check out what kind of birds would be out this season
The dads and kids ready to cross the bridge that led us to our bird watching journey
Kirsten took a photo of us..and then I took one of their family..which I will possibly see on their blog soon?????
This little guy was on the hunt...he was moving his feet around in the puddles trying to stir up some critter to eat
It's hard to tell on this photo but there was lots of little birds hiding in the marsh and shrubbery
This guy too was on the look out for some tasty morsel
We saw lots of these guys and Large Egrets as well and tons of loons and ducks
As we were leaving this little critter caught his catch of the day (a big piece of bread)..the kids liked watching him eat his meal
We had a really nice time. Now we gotta come back next season to look at the new batch of birds we will find.
