The Colorado Lagoon sits between the communities of Alamitos Heights and Belmont Heights. Restored and clean, it is a haven for migrating birds as they head north for the summer, or south for the winter.
I had noticed the distinctive birds some time before, but didn’t have my camera at the time. On October 4, 2019 I noticed the birds again, parked the car and walked back to take photos and a video. I shared these on Next Door, a social media site for those who live in close proximity to each other.
Avid birder and naturalist Robb Hamilton reported that they first appeared on September 18th, 2019.
Here are photos and videos. Will the population of egyptian geese continue to grow, or will they simply move on? Only time will tell.
Now, I would like to tell you about the peacocks. I will leave that for another day.
