Unusual Occurrences at Malibu Lagoon

October 18, 2019

Chris Tosdevin was at the lagoon on Saturday, October 12th and photographed two juvenile Greater White-fronted Geese. In the last 31 years our records show only two sightings, in 1988 and in 1999/2000 (five months in a row of the same bird[s]). So yes, this is a most unusual bird for the lagoon.



Another infrequently seen bird at the lagoon is the Peregrine Falcon. Usually they fly by and scare all the gulls, but they don’t stick around. This one paused to eat an American Coot. The pigeons must have been somewhere else.

Thanks to Chris for these photos and for the documentation.
