There are numerous places throughout the county to catch a 'birds-eye' view of beautiful avians. Lake Henshaw is usually a good spot to see Nesting Bald eagles and at San Elijo Lagoon, you can spot the California and Blue Gray Gnatcatchers and the pictured Harrier bird of prey. It is said San Diego has no seasons, but don't tell birds that! The beautiful yellow and black Hooded Oriole migrates here in the Spring from Mexico and the Fall brings a myriad of ducks and shore birds.
One of the major bird events is the San Diego Audubon's bird festival, annually held in early March. More information can be found at:
