A local birdwatcher has put together a list of birds that you can see or hear in the Pacific Beach portion of Rose Creek and/or the Rose Creek Salt Marsh and Estuary.  We challenge you to spot as many of these birds as you can find.

As an FYI, the Estuary is downstream of Garnet Avenue heading towards Mission Bay. The Riparian area is upstream of Garnet Avenue heading towards Mission Bay Drive and the freeway.  Many of the birds in the Riparian area are hard to see, but easier to hear. Click the image to enlarge.
