Southern California Birding 2013-4, Day 3

November 11, 2013. Balboa Park and the San Diego Natural History Museum. Our last day in San Diego was rather unusual for us. We went downtown early and birded Balboa Park for an hour or two before the San Diego Natural History Museum opened at 10 AM. We saw nothing special, but species included Yellow-rumped Warbler, Hermit Thrush, Anna's Hummingbird, Allen's Hummingbird, White-crowned Sparrow, and an Eastern Fox Squirrel. We spent most of the day in the Natural History Museum (until about 3:30 PM). We hadn't been there in decades, and Liz had fond childhood memories in the place. We eventually got lunch at an outdoor cafe (not high cuisine), then drove home.
