Today (Sunday, Feb 11) Norma Salcedo and I took our vertebrate zoology students to Huntington Beach State Park. Total bird diversity and abundance was pretty low. In the afternoon we walked out to the jetty and saw a raft of horned grebes, good numbers of ruddy turnstones, and plenty of Bonaparte's gulls. Not a loon to be seen. The best bird of the day was an adult razorbill, near the end of the jetty on the north side (between the two jetties). It swam by very closely, giving everyone an excellent look.
