Saturday birding

Elings Park -- grim. There were a few Vaux's Swifts overhead (yesterday there were hundreds--perhaps over a thousand--to the north and south of the park).

Ellwood and NCOS (or Ocean Meadows as Florence still refers to it--much more poetic)-- not quite as grim. A few common migrants at the end of Coronado, including a couple of Hermit Thrushes. Best birds at Ocean Meadows were two late Cliff Swallows flying over. A N. Harrier was scaring up the peeps.
