California's Salton Sea

Shrinking, sick and dying, without a freshwater inlet or drain-off outlet, California's once glamorous spot for vacationing southern California boaters, RV'ers and such, the Salton Sea is still a major aviary stopover on the Pacific flyway.
It is said that of the 600 species of birds in North America, over 400 of those come here in the winter and spring. Everything from Canadian snow geese, pelicans, egrets, several varieties of ducks, ibis, red-winged blackbirds, native owls and roadrunners are among those on view in this birder's paradise. Finding strong photo opps grows tougher yearly as the water recedes, but with the right sky and some can still happen.
