March 3, 2009: Birding San Jacinto Valley, Redlands, and Redlands, California

I had some time to bird again today, in the morning before class (Hidden Valley Wildlife Area - link), Ford Park in Redlands (link) at lunch, and the San Jacinto Valley Wildlife Area (link) in the evening. I only had a little time at each site, but still managed some nice shots!
