Egrets of Bolsa Chica

We went to Huntington Beach to escape the heat and decided to go birding at Bolsa Chica. The Reddish Egret was our prime target, and we were not disappointed. There were at least four, including one in a narrow channel area with good lighting. We watched him for 15 minutes as he fished, spreading his wings to create some shade to help in the process.

We also saw a snowy egret and a light-footed clapper rail.

We were also looking for black skimmers but only saw one from a distance.
