Female Wood Duck Ring-necked Duck
Mallard Landing at Santee Lakes Bewick’s Wren Fallbrook, CA
Last week I went to Santee Lakes in San Diego County off the 52 freeway, Mast exit north where hundreds of Ducks winter including possibly 30 or more Wood Ducks. This is one of the few places they can be found in our area and they also nest here in the Spring. Other species include American Wigeon, Ring_necked Duck, and lots of Coots. Also found are Ospreys, Belted Kingfishers, warblers, and several Hawk species- including Red-tailed, Cooper’s, and occasionally Zone-tailed.
