THE BOLSA CHICA WETLANDS
The Bolsa Chica wetlands in Huntington Beach, CA offers ever changing views, varying by weather, the tide, time of year, and presence of many species of birds.

These photos were taken late afternoon on February 19, 2009, two days after a winter storm, which typically is the only time one can see from the beach to the mountains of the Angeles National Forest on the left, and the San Bernardino National Forest on the right, some 60+ miles distance.  On the left is Mount San Antonio and to the right are the mountains around Big Bear Lake.

The pedestrian bridge from the parking lot across the water leads to a long walk around the Bolsa Chica area.  Today one can see the snow capped mountains backdrop.

A frequent sight, bird standing on post at bridge entrance, this one either missing a leg, or standing on one leg, can't be certain which.

This Seagull has a rather regal look I thought.

The "Nesting Area" sign might well add, "Don't Look Up, Wear a Hat!"
